The General Services Administration has introduced on IT Schedule 70 acquisition vehicle a new special item number for wireless mobility platforms to replace the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative wireless blanket purchase agreements.
GSA said Thursday the Wireless Mobility Solutions SIN covers 11 new service categories.
Those are wireless carrier services; other mobility end-point infrastructure – mobility infrastructure; mobility-as-a-service; enterprise mobility management; mobile backend-as-a-service; telecom expense management; mobile application vetting; mobile threat protection; mobile identity management; internet of things; and other/mobile services.
SIN 132-53 will also provide other suppliers an opportunity to compete.
“By using IT Schedule 70, we have the great benefit of an open season for onboarding service providers,“ said Bill Zielinski, acting assistant commissioner for GSA's office of information technology category.“This allows for greater choice and flexibility for agencies,“ Zielinski added.
