US GOVERNMENT FTS2000 CONTRACT NOT TO BE SPLIT BETWEEN TWO BIDDERS

By CBR Staff Writer

The General Services Adminstration has rejected the idea of splitting the contract for the US Government FTS2000 telecommunications network between two bidders, but suggests that it could be let for less than four years on a guaranteed basis rather than the 10 years in the tender, therefore committing the government to under $3,000m of expenditure before it would come up for review: delays are in AT&T’s interest since it makes more money on the antiquated existing system than it would on the new one, even if it does win the new contract.
