Treasury awards a $13 million BPA for voice and data services

The Treasury Department has awarded SBC Global Services Inc. a 4.5-year, $13 million blanket purchase agreement to provide the department and its bureaus with telephony equipment and service.

Under the Treasury Telecommunications Solutions Blanket Purchase Agreement, the San Antonio company will supply Treasury with:
  • voice and data equipment from Nortel Networks Corp. of Brampton, Ontario

  • data networking products from Adtran Inc. of Huntsville, Ala., and Alcatel USA Inc. of Plano, Texas

  • videoconferencing equipment from VTEL Products Corp. of Austin, Texas

  • call accounting and facilities management systems from Veramark Technologies Inc. of Pittsford, N.Y.

  • SBC will provide network design, installation and maintenance for legacy equipment and new products.

    The agreement, which took effect March 21, takes Treasury a step closer to its goal of standardizing its systems throughout the department. Treasury has been adopting enterprise licenses and contracts for cost efficiency and better productivity.
