The General Services Administration late last month released two draft requests for proposals for its $10 billion governmentwide telecommunications procurement.
The draft Networx RFPs cover both approaches'universal and enterprise'to replacing the FTS 2001 telecommunications contract, which expires in 2006. The universal RFP is for companies offering nationwide telecommunications services; the enterprise RFP is for companies that offer specialized telecommunications services but don't necessarily have a nationwide reach.
GSA expects to release the final RFPs by April 1 and award multiple contracts by April 2006.
John Johnson, assistant commissioner of the Federal Technology Service for service delivery, said GSA refined many areas of the draft RFP and tried to deal with some of the billing concerns.
