GSA to issue WITS 3 RFP in January

The General Services Administration last week announced it would release the final request for proposals for the Washington Interagency Telecommunications System 3 contract on or about Jan. 2.

In a presoliciation notice on FedBizOpps.gov, GSA said WITS 3 will be a single acquisition with multiple awards. GSA released the draft RFP in May and vendors submitted comments in June.

WITS 3 could be worth about $1.8 billion over eight years, according to Input, a market research firm in Reston, Va.

WITS 3 would replace WITS 2001, which is held by Qwest Communications International Inc. of Denver and Verizon Communications Inc. of New York and expires in January 2008. GSA awarded the 8-year, $1.4 billion WITS 2001 contract in 2000.

WITS 2001 provides federal agencies in the national capital region a wide range of local access, data and telecommunications equipment.

The national capital region includes Washington; the Maryland counties of Montgomery and Prince George's; the Virginia counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William; and the Virginia cities of Alexandria, Manassas, Fairfax and Falls Church.
