CenturyLink has won four fair opportunity award decisions from the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).
The awards will see CenturyLink offer network and data transmission services which put them way ahead of competitors. The task orders, which run through May 2017, were awarded via the General Services Administration’s Networx Enterprise contract and are valued at up to $10 million.
In a press release dated January 27, CenturyLink confirmed that they will provide Ethernet private line and Internet Protocol services to support advanced data services for global Defense Information Systems Network users in the continental United States. The task orders support these network services in four regions: Colorado Springs, Colo.; Arlington-Norfolk, Va.; Huntsville, Ala.; and Omaha, Neb.
This is not the first time that the company is finding itself in such a situation. CenturyLink has a long history of providing the U.S. Department of Defense and DISA with the diverse, reliable and scalable network services that are crucial components of the nation’s defense systems.
By supplying cloud, colocation and managed hosting services over its carrier-class network, CenturyLink provides agencies with the security and reliability they need to carry out their important missions. CenturyLink Senior Vice President and General Manager Tim Meehan, who leads the company’s federal government team, said it is an honor to have been awarded the opportunities.
Meehan added that the decision proves their services are of the highest quality among service providers in the whole of America. He promised that they will do their best to deliver as required. “We are proud that the Department of Defense continues to place its trust in CenturyLink to provide core network services that play an important role in helping defend this great nation.” CenturyLink is ranked No. 37 on Washington Technology’s 2015 Top 100 list of federal government IT contractors.
