Gary Washington, chief information officer of the Department of Agriculture, said at an ACT-IAC event that the department plans to issue a task order for systems modernization support in the coming days, FCW reported Tuesday. The task order will fall under the General Services Administration's Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract for telecommunications services valued at $50 billion. 

“We're very excited about some of the things — such as modernization, improved performance and delivery of services — that we're going to be able to provide,” Washington noted. He added that USDA aims to complete the EIS modernization effort throughout its 17 networks by 2023.
