The General Services Administration is granting another one-month extension on the due dates for industry responses to its 10-year, $20 billion Networx telecommunications and data contract, an agency spokeswoman said today.
The deadlines for responses are now Oct. 5 for the Universal portion of Networx and Oct. 7 for the Enterprise portion, said Mary Alice Johnson, a GSA spokeswoman.
'In response to requests from potential industry offerors for more time to submit proposals, we have granted an extension of one month,' she said.
In June, GSA decided to push back the original deadline of Aug. 3 for Universal and Aug. 5 for Enterprise by 30 days, to Sept. 6 and Sept. 8, respectively.
Networx Universal will provide government locations with a wide range of telecom services nationwide, while Enterprise will offer specialized Internet protocol and wireless services in specific geographical areas. GSA will issue multiple awards for both in April 2006.
GSA plans to issue a second amendment today on the FedBizOpps Web site, announcing the extension of the due dates for responses to its requests for proposals.
