The American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council has formed a working group to help federal agencies and contractors transition to the General Services Administration‘s new governmentwide acquisition vehicle for telecommunications services.

The group is made-up of all 10 companies that won EIS contract spots, GSA, the Government Accountability Office  and the Office of Management and Budget.

The awardees are:

  • AT&T
  • BT Federal
  • CenturyLink
  • Core Technologies
  • Granite Telecommunications
  • Harris
  • Level 3 Communications
  • MetTel
