GSA awards MAA contracts for Minneapolis-St. Paul

JUNE 1—The General Services Administration yesterday awarded contracts worth up to $60 million for local telephone service in Minneapolis-St. Paul under the Metropolitan Area Acquisition Program managed by GSA's Federal Technology Service.

The two contracts, which will run over four base years with four one-year options, were awarded to US West Inc. of Englewood, Colo., and Winstar Communications Inc. of New York.

The contracts call for voice, switched data and dedicated-line services, and allow for new services as they become available. GSA estimates the contracts could save as much as $13 million compared with other contracts available to the government.

GSA has now awarded MAA contracts for 13 cities, with the maximum contract values totaling $2.6 billion. Contracts for seven others—Albuquerque, N.M.; Boise, Idaho; Boston; Dallas; Denver; New Orleans; and Philadelphia—are expected in the next few months, GSA said.
