On November 24, 2009, the Greater Southwest Region awarded the TelServ contract in support of the purchase of telecommunications equipment and services. This contract offers telecommunications equipment and labor in direct support to federal agencies within Region 7. The contract allows the federal agencies the ability to place orders directly with the vendors or seek the assisted services offered by the GSA/FAS Region 7 staff. This initiative will provide federal agencies the ability to procure comprehensive telecommunications equipment and services, that will streamline the ordering and management of projects and services, and ultimately lower the total cost of commercial products and services.
The TelServ award is made to an 8(a) Service Disabled Veteran Owned business, AmeriCom Automation Services, Inc of Las Cruces, New Mexico. This contract is a fully competed Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Firm Fixed Price (FFP) direct order, direct bill non-mandatory single award contract for a five year period, one base year and four option years. The contract value is set at $49.5M. The minimum per order value is set at $50.00 and maximum per order value is set at $1.5M. Check here to view the "User Guide" and "Brochure".
