Business will provide a range of local voice and data services to federal agencies in five Mid-Atlantic states under a new agreement, valued at as much as $120.8 million, with the U.S. General Services Administration.
The agreement, known as the Mid-Atlantic Local Services Acquisition contract, covers three years and four renewable option years. Under terms of the deal, the GSA and other federal agencies in the Mid-Atlantic region -- which covers Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia -- can immediately buy local voice and data services. They include Centrex, ISDN services, network-based voice messaging, private line data services, and related managed and professional services.
The LSA contract also provides an option to add advanced services, such as VoIP, in the future.
The contract replaces three Metropolitan Area Acquisition agreements that Verizon Business had in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Norfolk, as well as the Mid-Atlantic Access Contract for Centrex Services.
