GSA extends Networx deadlines

The General Services Administration is extending the deadlines for companies to respond to its requests for proposals for the FTS Networx procurement, an agency spokeswoman said yesterday.

GSA spokeswoman Mary Alice Johnson said the due dates have been pushed back 30 days for both the Universal and Enterprise parts of the contract. The new due dates are Sept. 6 for Universal and Sept. 8 for Enterprise. The original deadlines were Aug. 3 for Universal and Aug. 5 for Enterprise.

Networx is a 10-year, $20 billion procurement for governmentwide telecommunications and network services. It is divided into two sections: a Universal part that will provide government locations with a wide range of telecom services nationwide, and an Enterprise part that will offer a mix of specialized Internet protocol or wireless services in specific geographical areas. Multiple awards for both will be issued in April 2006.
