DOJ Selects AT&T for $984M Contract, Includes FirstNet Access
Monday, July 29, 2019 | Comments

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) selected AT&T for a potential $984 million 15-year contract. 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 General Services Administration's (GSA) Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) technology procurement program includes a breadth of 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.

The DOJ solution includes access to the AT&T mobility network and First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet). FirstNet services and AT&T's global network offer DOJ and its component organizations access to highly secure and reliable connectivity, as well as vital communications capabilities when and where they are needed, AT&T said.

"The DOJ and its component organizations do the hard work of protecting the freedoms, rights and safety of all Americans," said Stacy Schwartz, vice president, AT&T – Public Safety and FirstNet. "We are honored to provide a modern communications platform and capabilities to support the DOJ's work for the next 15 years."

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 with a balanced approach to access cloud services from multiple providers and ensuring the access is highly secure.

The new solution will 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.
