Report: AT&T Lands Potential $3.3B NSA IT Infrastructure Services Contract

AT&T (NYSE: T) has won a potential 10-year, $3.3 billion contract to provide information technology support services for the National Security Agency, Nextgov reported Wednesday.

AT&T submitted a $2.55 billion bid for the Regional Infrastructure Services I contract and was selected by NSA for exceeding the requirements in several areas such as technical services, enterprise management services and integration, according to redacted documents released Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office.

The contract is the second of the three Greenway technology contracts awarded by NSA as part of the classified Groundbreaker program.

The report said the Groundbreaker program was introduced in 2001 to provide NSA a platform to outsource its IT operations.

DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) also competed for the Regional Infrastructure Services I contract with a $1.79 billion bid, according to the redacted version of GAO’s bid protest decision.
