GSA awards Denver MAA

GSA awards Denver MAA

The General Services Administration has awarded local phone service contracts for the Denver area to AT&T Corp., Qwest Communications Inc. of Denver and WinStar Communications Inc. of New York.

The contracts, jointly worth an estimated $270 million over eight years, are the latest in the Metropolitan Area Acquisition program run by GSA's Federal Technology Service. GSA has already awarded MAA contracts covering 15 cities; more contracts are coming for Albuquerque, N.M.; Boise, Idaho; Boston; New Orleans and Philadelphia.

The contracts will provide standard voice, switched data and dedicated transmission services for agencies in the Denver metropolitan area, which includes parts of adjacent counties and the city of Golden. The MAA rates will be up to 48 percent lower than current government rates in the local market.
