AT&T wins $80m contract with Social Security Administration

To provide on-site support and MPLS services

By CBR Staff Writer

The AT&T Government Solutions business unit has won a contract worth around $80m from the Social Security Administration (SSA). The agency leveraged the $20 billion US General Services Administration Networx Universal contract to make the award.

Under the terms of the contract, AT&T Government Solutions will serve as the secondary data network service provider for the SSA’s Enterprise-Wide Network Infrastructure (SSANet), which provides the foundation for all information exchanges with the agency’s enterprise network.

Reportedly, AT&T Government Solutions has served the voice and data network needs of SSA for several years. It currently provides Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) data network services to support around 1,000 SSA locations throughout the US, including the US Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Alaska.

AT&T said that it will continue to provide on-site support and MPLS services for any-to-any network connectivity between the offices and data centers. SSA will transition these data services from GSA’s Federal Telecommunications Service 2001 to Networx Universal.

Don Herring, senior vice president of AT&T Government Solutions, said: The Social Security Administration has a long, successful history of serving the retirement needs of citizens throughout the country. AT&T will help the agency provide a high-quality citizen service experience through our MPLS infrastructure to accommodate an anticipated influx of new users, including retiring, largely Internet-savvy baby boomers.
