The General Services Administration expects to award in the next few weeks a potential 15-year, $50 billion contract vehicle for information technology, infrastructure and telecommunication services, FedTech reported Thursday.
GSA is “a couple of weeks off” from awarding the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract, Bill Zielinski, deputy assistant commissioner for IT category management at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said at a FedInsider event held Thursday in Washington, D.C.
Zielinski said the EIS contract vehicle will provide agencies access to managed network services, cloud offerings, mobility platforms and unified communications.
EIS also aims to help agencies facilitate adoption of converged network architectures, 5G wireless networks and software-defined networking and could extend through 2032.
Agencies that are currently using Networx procurement vehicle would be required to transition to EIS by the spring of 2020, the report added.
Zielinski noted that GSA has collaborated with the Department of Homeland Security to incorporate provisions of the White House’s cybersecurity executive order and other network security requirements into the EIS contract.
Updates on EIS came nearly two years after GSA opened the solicitation process for the contract vehicle.
