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.
