CenturyLink’s David Young Backs Extension of Move to EIS Telecom & Networks Contract

David Young

TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 2, 2018 — David Young, senior vice president of strategic government at CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL), has said the extension of the deadline for agencies to transition to the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract makes the program more feasible when changing contractors, ExecutiveBiz reported Dec. 11.

Young said in a Federal News Network report published Dec. 10 that agencies will see “double digit” cost savings when they transform their telecommunications and network technology through the move from Networx to EIS.

“There are technologies that industry is moving away from, and as fewer and fewer buy those things from carriers, there are fewer people to support them and the cost structure will go up,” Young, a 2018 Wash100 awardee, told the publication.

The General Services Administration now expects agencies to issue their EIS solicitations by March 31 and award their corresponding task orders by Sept. 30.
