American telecommunications company CenturyLink recently won a sought after spot on the General Service Administration’s (GSA) Alliant 2 program. The 10-year, USD 50 billion program enables government agencies to purchase and use customized hardware, software and IT solutions in a packaged deal.
Alliant 2 is a part of GSA’s Network Services 2020 strategy along with EIS program which aims to provide federal agencies with modern IT communication services as per government security standards.
On CenturyLink’s inclusion into the program, David Young, Regional Vice President of Strategic Governments commented:
GSA’s selection of CenturyLink for an unrestricted Alliant 2 award confirms that we offer federal agencies the right tools to help them modernize their IT systems. CenturyLink is committed to helping agencies with their digital transformation via multiple contract vehicles.
CenturyLink’s inclusion in the program follows the the launch of their hybrid SD-WAN services for businesses wanting to add SD-WAN options to their private internet links.
