AT&T has won a task order valued up to $119 million to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revamp its communications and slash costs by bolstering the agency’s local area network, in-building cellular coverage and Wi-Fi. The single, fully managed telecommunications solution will support the work of hundreds of thousands CDC employees and contractors across the nation.
“We’re delivering reliable connectivity to help CDC experts protect our nation’s health,” said Mike Leff, vice president-civilian, AT&T Global Public Sector Solutions.
The task order, which includes a 7-month base period and four optional years, was awarded by the General Services Administration, on behalf of the Health and Human Services Department. It is awarded through GSA’s governmentwide acquisition contract, Connections II, used by federal agencies to acquire network and telecommunications labor, equipment and support for buildings and campuses.
