Treasury Chooses AT&T for $250 Million Contract 

A few days ago the IRS announced on behalf of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, that they had selected AT&T as the network services provider for the Treasury Network (TNet) acquisition. The overall value of this contract is estimated at a whopping $270 million over it’s life. Back in December 2006, the Department of Treasury had decided to use the General Services Administration's Networx program to integrate its telecommunications requirements into a single Treasury-wide network infrastructure. This change allows them to utilize a fully managed network service, coupled with service level agreements and performance incentives to deliver secure voice, data and video communications. "Treasury is the first agency to have completed a fair opportunity decision on the Networx Universal contract and expect they will be the first agency to begin ordering service," said Karl Krumbholz, Director of Network Services Programs at the General Services Administration. "We are extremely pleased to have assisted Treasury in meeting their network service requirements and found them to have a very strong and highly professional technical and contracting team that was a pleasure to work with. We look forward to a positive and productive relationship with the Treasury TNet Program in the years ahead."
