GSA considers need for new TELIS contract

The General Services Administration's Federal Computer Acquisition Center is considering a follow-on to the successful Telecommunications Integrator Services contract, which it administers for the Treasury Department.

The contract 'is being talked about' with Energy and other departments that use the contract, said Wayne Hoover, GSA's TELIS program manager.

The five-year contract, held by Electronic Data Systems Corp. with a team of more than 80 subcontractors, expires in June of next year. It originally supported Energy's local telecom needs but has grown into a governmentwide vehicle offering a full range of telecom services, except for long distance.

The TELIS program has a $600 million ceiling and rang up a total of $345 million by the end of last year, making it FEDCAC's top seller.
