GSA to hold Networx transition conference for agencies

Although the contracts will not be awarded until next spring and summer, the General Services Administration is planning a conference later this year to explore how agencies will transition to GSA's $20 billion Networx telecommunications vehicles, a key agency official has said.

John Johnson, assistant commissioner for service development and delivery within GSA's Federal Technology Service, said last month that the September 'summit' in the Washington area will focus on how to move from the existing Federal Telecommunications Systems 2001 contract to the 10-year Networx contracts.

Johnson reiterated that the agency is still on schedule to award the two-pronged Networx contracts next year'Universal, a telecom services vehicle, by March, and Enterprise, which will offer a range of IP services, by May.
