AT&T to Update CDC Telecom Network Under $119M GSA Task Order; Mike Leff Comments

AT&T (NYSE: T) has received a potential five-year, $119 million task order from the General Services Administration to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention modernize its telecommunications systems.

The task order has a base term of seven months and four option years and covers updates to CDC’s Wi-Fi, cellular coverage and local area network through the implementation of a single telecommunications platform in support of the agency’s employees and contractors in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, AT&T said Tuesday.

Mike Leff, vice president of AT&T’s global public sector business for civilian agencies, said the company will work to deliver connectivity to CDC in support of the agency’s mission to protect the country from health threats.

GSA awarded the task order under the Connections II government-wide acquisition contract that federal agencies use to procure telecommunications and network support services.

Those services include infrastructure design, network equipment upgrade, professional services for existing networks, transition planning, infrastructure installation and other technical support.
