GSA Grants MetTel Full Authority to Operate Under $50B EIS Contract; Diana Gowen Quoted

MetTel has received full authority to operate (ATO) under the General Services Administration's (GSA) 15-year, $50 billion Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) program, the company announced on Thursday.

"Our diverse background in providing IT communications services to both private and public organizations has prepared us to service and modernize the government's IT communications infrastructure," said Diana Gowen, senior vice president and general manager, MetTel Federal Program. 

MetTel will provide federal agencies with voice, video, data transport, hosting, and cloud services, call centers, cable and wiring, associated labor services, managed network and managed security services as part of the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions program.

The GSA announced that MetTel has successfully completed business support systems (BSS) functional and security testing, which will enhance GSA’s product management, order management, revenue management and customer management. The company completed the task on Dec. 13, 2019. 

Additionally, the EIS contract will allow MetTel to accept and process tasks and service orders, provision and deliver services, and bill for services.

"We look forward to now being able to bring our experience and expertise in providing IT communications services, to the federal government," Gowen added. 

In October 2019, MetTel has received another federal indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract by the Department of Defense (DoD), valued at $994 million, to update wireless devices and services for the U.S. defense and federal civilian agencies.

"Government is always looking for a smarter way to acquire goods and services," said Gowen. "MetTel's ability to efficiently provide the newest communication technology in packaged solutions delivered through fully managed services has caught the attention of the Federal agencies," she added.
