G2G Marketplace adds CenturyLink services

State and local government agencies that use G2G Marketplace now have easy purchasing access to a wide range of colocation, cloud and security services from CenturyLink.

The Monroe, La.-based telecom and IT services firm announced the new procurement option on May 10.   The G2G Marketplace was launched by Oakland County, Mich., in 2014, and aims to simplify the purchase and licensing process for governments that might not be willing to manage such complex procurements on their own.

Rick Buyens, CenturyLink's regional sales vice president, said the new arrangement "streamlines the contracting, licensing and purchasing process" for agencies pursuing a hybrid cloud IT strategy.   And the announcement noted that the blanket purchase agreement was negotiated following "all generally accepted government standard purchasing processes."
