The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has selected AT&T to help improve its mission performance with modernized technology. The work – awarded via a Task Order through the General Services Administration’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) technology procurement program – is valued at approximately $984 million over 15 years if all options are exercized.
Through this award, the DOJ will transition to a next-generation communications platform supporting more than 120,000 employees across more than 2,100 locations. The fully managed solution includes numerous networking capabilities, including IP voice, data, security, cloud access and professional services. This will serve as a catalyst for the DOJ’s long-term technology priorities.
EIS is a federal technology procurement that allows government agencies to cost-effectively modernize and expand mission support. The AT&T solution will provide DOJ the flexibility and protections to meet their requirements as they aim to strike the right balance between needs to access cloud services from multiple providers and ensuring the access is highly secure.
The new solution aims to help simplify cloud adoption across 43 component organizations and support the Department’s Joint Cloud Optimized Trusted Internet Connection Service (JCOTS), which will accelerate the path for DOJ to access multiple cloud environments with improved security, reliability and speed.
Additionally, the DOJ solution includes access to the AT&T mobility network and FirstNet, the nationwide, dedicated communications platform purpose-built for public safety.
