AT&T Government Solutions Wins $45 Million Award from the Department of State for Managed Services


AT&T Award under the General Services Administration Networx Universal Program.

The AT&T Government Solutions business unit has announced an award from the Department of State estimated to be worth approximately $45 million if all options are exercised.

The award was issued via the General Services Administration’s Networx Universal program, a contract vehicle that allows AT&T to provide a full range of communications services to federal government agencies.

Selected by the State Department as the sole provider of telecommunication services ordered from the Networx Universal contract for the Cabinet-level agency, AT&T will provide Managed Services including Private Line, Multi-Protocol Label Switching, Frame Relay, Voice and IP Telephony. AT&T will deploy these services at more than 100 State Department locations, supporting systems and applications for its 13,000 employee work force.

“Federal agencies need to ensure that their employees inside and outside the country can access information and communicate quickly in a secure manner,” said Don Herring, senior vice president, AT&T Government Solutions. “With the reliability, security and global footprint of the AT&T network, AT&T will help the State Department and its work force collaborate and share data in a secure manner, regardless of location.”

The AT&T Transition Management Center, a government-dedicated site with PMP-certified program managers and staff, will manage the voice and data network transition for the State Department.

With this new award, AT&T has now announced Networx awards with customers including the Department of the Treasury, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration.

The State Department award has a time frame of eight years, which includes a two-year base with three two-year options.
