CenturyLink Inc. won a multiyear contract worth about $11.4 million to provide its services to the U.S. Senate state offices.
The company will provide more than 450 Senate offices in all 50 states with a unified communications-as-a-service platform for hosted voice-over-internet-protocol, or VoIP, service, according to a Dec. 19 press release. The contract, which is worth about $3.8 million a year, includes installing, maintaining, operation and managing CenturyLink-supplied hardware, software, training and help desk support.
The company was awarded the contract from the office of the U.S. Senate Sergeant at Arms, which is responsible for all Senate telecom and technology support services for U.S. Senate offices in Washington, D.C., and other states. The contract is for three years, with four one-year options and a total value of about $26 million.
