The General Services Administration has awarded Verizon Federal Inc. of Washington a contract worth up to $350 million over eight years for local telephone service in the Norfolk, Va., area.

The contract prices average 16 percent lower than federal users currently pay in the area. GSA has estimated savings for basic analog voice at more than 27 percent over eight years.
