The General Services Administration is asking for comments from industry on GSA’s plans to transition customer agencies from expiring regional telecommunications service contracts to the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions procurement vehicle.
GSA also seeks feedback on a proposed acquisition strategy wherein the agency will conduct fair opportunities, issue task orders and manage regional telecom services on behalf of customers, according to a FedBizOpps notice posted Tuesday.
The agency will serve as the “customer of record” where it will pay vendor invoices and rebill the customer through the Intra-Governmental Payment and Collection system.
GSA opened final solicitations for the potential 15-year, $50 billion EIS governmentwide acquisition contract in October 2015.
EIS covers information technology, infrastructure and telecommunication services.
The agency’s current full-service model serves a customer base of 53 agency-level customers, 8,000 sub-agencies and approximately 16,000 customer accounts.
GSA set a Feb. 27 deadline for responses.
