Transition Close Out

Transition Close Out. As government agencies move to the EIS acquisition vehicle, legacy telecommunications contracts will expire. GSA will limit the use of its legacy telecommunications contracts and freeze all future growth on these vehicles. Extended use of these contracts is limited to agencies who are making sufficient transition progress to be 100% off of the expiring contracts by September 30, 2022. The Networks Authorized User List (NAUL) will be updated to remove users in phases which is expected to begin in summer 2020. In addition GSA will stop processing any new Networx/WITS contract modifications and any new LSA implementations orders on October 1, 2020.
