Verizon, AT&T receive authority to operate under EIS contract

Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. were issued a three-year authority to operate on March 22, to sell their services under the General Services Administration's $50 billion Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract.

The authorization was given after the telcos completed the operational business support system and security testing, allowing them to accept and process task orders or service orders, provision or deliver services, and bill for services.

"We're excited to receive our ATO and will utilize best practices and lessons learned to support agencies' unique requirements and transition them to EIS quickly and efficiently," Verizon's Senior Vice President of Public Sector Mike Maiorana said in a March 25 news release.

Under the contract, Verizon said it will offer tailored solutions to federal government agencies.

Earlier, CenturyLink Inc. announced March 14 it is the first telecommunications company to receive an authority to operate under the EIS program.

Federal agencies use the EIS program to buy telecommunications and advanced technologies from GSA-authorized technology providers.
