EIS contract extension
DC Government Has Yet to Decide on Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions Contract Extension
The Government of the District of Columbia has until Sept. 30 to sign a memorandum of understanding that would extend its usage of legacy network and telecommunications services while it transitions to the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract worth up to $50 billion. The document compels agencies to say that they will either fulfill their transition to EIS or find another solution by May 31, 2024. Organizations that do not sign must disconnect all their services from the contracts by the deadline, FedScoop reported Friday.
The MoU deadline was set in June by the General Services Administration, which implemented a continuity of service clause for three contracts named Networx, Washington Interagency Telecommunications System 3 and Local Telecommunications Services. These agreements are scheduled to sunset by May 31, 2023.
The D.C. government is one of two entities that have not notified GSA of its intent to continue using the legacy network contracts during the transition to EIS, a vehicle intended to cover all IT telecom and infrastructure needs for federal agencies. Planned outcomes include a simpler acquisition process, smaller costs, more participation by small businesses and the ability to procure integrated solutions.
A GSA spokesperson told FedScoop the agency is making efforts to reach the remaining two agencies.
