During the creation of the current contract, called Networx, the General Services Administration inadvertently limited competition to five large carriers. Federal News Radio's executive editor Jason Miller joins the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp to discuss how GSA is trying to learn from its mistakes of the past as it develops the new NS2020 strategy.

GSA changes its model for the next generation telecom effort

The Network Services 2020 initiative will not be a large worldwide contract as the Networx and FTS procurements were over the past 20 years. GSA still is developing the overall strategy, but plans to use a similar approach it used with DISA on the recent satellite communications contract.
