CenturyLink Gets Authority to Operate on GSA’s EIS Telecom Contract; David Young Quoted

David Young

CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL) has secured an authority to operate on the General Services Administration’s potential 15-year, $50B Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract for telecommunications and information technology services.

“We’re excited to be the first vendor to receive an ATO on EIS so we can immediately help federal agencies jumpstart their IT modernization plans and use the latest technology to carry out their missions more efficiently,” David Young, CenturyLink’s senior vice president for strategic government, said in a statement published Thursday.

“For example, agencies that have already issued EIS RFPs can now start awarding EIS task orders,” added Young, a 2019 Wash100 winner.

CenturyLink is one of the 10 companies that won spots on the EIS contract awarded in 2017 as follow-on to GSA’s WITS3, Networx and other contract vehicles for regional telecommunications support.

GSA announced in December that it will extend for up to three years its legacy telecom services contracts to provide agencies enough time to transition to EIS.
