WASHINGTON, Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) recently secured a three-year extension of its product offerings that are available to federal government agencies via the General Services Administration (GSA)’s Networx program.
CenturyLink’s Networx Universal and Enterprise contracts were originally scheduled to expire in spring 2017. The company’s Networx Universal contract has been extended through the end of March 2020 and its Networx Enterprise contract has been extended through end of May 2020. Both extensions feature a one-year base period with two one-year options.
GSA’s Networx program includes the largest telecommunications contract vehicles ever awarded by the federal government. The three-year extensions of CenturyLink’s contracts will give federal agencies time to transition services to GSA’s Enterprise Infrastructure Services (EIS) acquisition, currently an active procurement.
By supplying cloud and managed hosting services over its carrier-class network, CenturyLink is able to provide government agencies with the security and reliability they need to carry out their missions.
“We’re pleased that GSA has approved CenturyLink’s Networx contract extensions, which will help federal agencies make a smooth transition from Networx to GSA’s new EIS contract vehicle,” said CenturyLink Senior Vice President and General Manager Tim Meehan, who leads the company’s federal government team.
CenturyLink is ranked No. 37 on Washington Technology’s 2015 Top 100 list of federal government IT contractors.
