Federal agencies needing network and telecommunications labor, equipment, and support for buildings and campuses use GSA’s inter-agency shared Connections II contract to acquire network infrastructure solutions, including:
- Infrastructure design, installation, and implementation;
- Professional services to support existing networks;
- Upgrading network equipment, standards (including IPv6), and systems;
- Transition planning and integration services; and
- Customized client-specific systems.
Connection II Benefits
The Connections II program saves time and money for agencies purchasing and managing campus and building networking solutions. The contract also gives federal agencies other benefits, like flexibility and a pool of qualified large and small businesses.
Use the inter-agency contract to reduce agency costs and acquisition time and allow your agency resources to focus more on mission.
Strong competition means very good prices. Focused solutions lead to good downstream savings (less costly operations and maintenance).
