CenturyLink won some significant federal contract business this week. The U.S. Department of the Interior has awarded a task order worth up to $1.6B to the the company. The DOI has some 65K employees around its 2,400 operating locations nationwide.
The deal covers two task areas. Under the first, CenturyLInk will be designing, engineering, building, securing, operating, and maintaining DOI's enterprise network. They'll be deploying SD-WAN, VPN, private line, and ethernet transport links for that part, as well as various security technologies. The second task area delves into managed access services, such as cloud connectivity and WiFi.
The contract consists of some 11 one-year options running through 2032, and was awarded under the GSA's EIS program. CentuiryLink won a spot under that contract vehicle last March.
