DoD hires Verizon under Networx
Thursday - 10/30/2008, 1:06pm EDT
DoD ran two separate competitions that were worth a combined $1.1 billion and Verizon won both, the company announced on Thursday.
In June, the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization awarded Verizon a $752 million contract to provide data services such as IP virtual private network services, IP services, wireless and point-to-point wired telephone services.
In February, DITCO hired Verizon under a $368 million voice contract to provide services to more than 700,000 military employees worldwide. The voice services include long distance, calling-card, ISDN and video teleconferencing.
DoD also hired Verizon under the previous telecommunications contract, FTS-2001, that Networx replaces.
