Verizon Business to provide voice, data services to US Department of HHS

Also to assist with conference room design and systems setup

By CBR Staff Writer

Verizon Business will provide the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with a set of voice, data, collaboration and professional services under a new agreement through the Washington Interagency Telecommunications System (WITS 3) contract.

Verizon Business said that under the agreement, worth up to $245m if all options are exercised, it will provide HHS with voice and data services, voice mail systems, and audio, video, and web conferencing. Also its professional services personnel will assist the department with conference room design and systems setup.

The company further stated that, under the agreement, HHS will be able to order from Verizon Business additional services – including security software and professional services.

Reportedly, the US General Services Administration’s WITS 3 contract, which runs through 2015, covers local telecommunications and professional services and products for federal agencies in the National Capital Region, which includes Washington, D.C., and portions of the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.

The company further says that it has previously provided voice and data services to the agency under the WITS2001 contract, the predecessor to WITS 3.
