U.S. Dept. of Treasury Awards $231 Million/12-Year Task Order to AT&T for Network Modernization
What’s the news? AT&T* was awarded a Task Order from the U.S. Department of Treasury (Treasury) to modernize Treasury’s voice and data networks and provide cybersecurity protections. The Task Order is valued at $231 million over 12 years and was awarded via the General Service Administration’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions technology procurement program.
Why is this important?
The Department of the Treasury is the steward of U.S. economic and financial systems and an influential participant in the world economy. It operates and maintains systems that are critical to the nation's financial infrastructure, such as the production of coin and currency, the disbursement of payments to the American public, revenue collection, and the borrowing of funds necessary to run the federal government.
Treasury sought a telecommunications provider that would improve and optimize its network, telecommunications, and infrastructure environment while also providing a forward-looking evolutionary technology roadmap and a business operational vision that acknowledges and empowers an increasingly mobile, on-demand federal workforce.
It selected AT&T to deliver and modernize networking services in support of approximately 100,000 Treasury workers across approximately 700 geographically dispersed sites for the next 12 years.
Chris Smith, Vice President-Civilian and Shared Services, AT&T Public Sector:
“Hats off to the technology leadership and team at Treasury for making a deliberate and comprehensive commitment to network modernization. We look forward to working with Treasury to help transform its communications capabilities and help ensure it is future-ready for further innovation.”
What is the status of technology implementation?
The transition from Networx to EIS is underway. We expect this transition will combine speed and technology transformation to help Treasury attain EIS-based technology and cost advantages quickly.
