Local Telecommunications Services

All agencies using Networx, WITS 3, and Local Telecommunications contracts must transition to Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contracts or another vehicle according to the following schedule:

  • March 31, 2022: 90% of agencies telecom inventory must be off expiring contracts and moved to EIS
  • September 30, 2022: 100% of agencies telecom inventory must be off expiring contracts and moved to EIS
  • September 30, 2022: Agencies sign Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) for Continuity of Service period
  • November 1, 2022 - May 31, 2023: Contractors disconnect agencies without MOUs
  • May 31, 2024: Continuity of Service period ends for agencies with signed MOUs

Use of the extended contracts will be further restricted by the limitations process and the freeze on modifications and orders. Read more about this in the letter to all Agency Transition Sponsors [PDF - 189 KB] from FAS Assistant Commissioner Laura Stanton.

  • We update the Networks Authorized User List (NAUL) [XLSX - 88 KB] of agencies authorized to use the extended contracts (see Section H.2.3a and b of those contracts) as we enforce the eligibility condition for the extension of expiring contracts. In preparation for the Continuity of Service period, we prepared a Preliminary NAUL [XLSX - 83 KB] to indicate the agencies that will be authorized to use the Continuity of Service Period and those that will be removed from the NAUL in May 2023.
