The General Service Administration has been working to shift federal agencies to the Networx telecommunications contract vehicle for around five years.
According to the GSA’s website, the universal contracts increase service offerings and were awarded on March 29, 2007.
The Networx vehicle consists of two broad acquisition venues, universal and enterprise, both of which have four base years and three two-year options.
The FTS2001 bridge and crossover contracts expired in May and June 2011, however, around 100 agencies still have still have some form of service on them, Federal News Radio reported.
GSA may have to extend the vehicle up to March 2013, which would mark at least the fourth time GSA has continued the contract.
GSA recently issued a bulletin to agencies outlining the circumstances they must follow throughout the transition, according to Federal News Radio.
GSA hopes to have the number of agencies still using FTS2001 down to around 20 by the bridge period.
