Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) Wireless

The Wireless FSSI program will improve the procurement and management of wireless services across government. Agencies will be able to implement cellular service plans and devices more effectively and efficiently through the following:

  • Unified acquisition – consolidates the number and variety of dispersed wireless contracts to reduce life-cycle management costs and drive better volume discounts.
  • Improved information management – simplifies service plan management and enables centralized access to standardized usage data to easily identify opportunities for cost savings.
  • Center of excellence – leverages best practices and collaboration across agencies and the entire community of stakeholders to optimize performance and increase value.

Wireless FSSI is part of the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI).


  • Save time by consolidating multiple wireless services, plans, and devices across the enterprise into a streamlined program.
  • Easily select the contractor with the best quality, price, and service coverage.
  • Save 15-20 percent by taking advantage of volume-pricing and price-maintenance controls.
  • Gain control by electronically collecting and analyzing inventory and account data.
