AT&T has been awarded a task order from the Treasury Department to modernize its 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 Services Administration’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions technology procurement program.
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 critical to the nation’s financial infrastructure.
The agency 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,” according to AT&T.
AT&T is 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.
“Hats off to the technology leadership and team at Treasury for making a deliberate and comprehensive commitment to network modernization,” said Chris Smith, vice president of civilian and shared services at AT&T Public Sector. “We look forward to working with Treasury to help transform its communications capabilities and help ensure it is future ready for further innovation.”
