DoE Awards Verizon $34.6M Contract for Digital Modernization
Wednesday, December 01, 2021 | Comments

The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) awarded Verizon Public Sector two contracts worth $34.6 million through the federal government’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract vehicle. Verizon will provide voice and data services and will supply a number of DOE facilities, including its Washington, D.C., headquarters.

“Verizon’s ability to deliver innovative network solutions for our public sector customers makes us the go-to partner when it comes to addressing the government’s technology needs,” said Jennifer Chronis, senior vice president of public sector at Verizon. “The depth and experience of our professional and managed services teams along with their hands-on approach to building customized solutions for our customers is at the heart of our recent string of wins with the federal government.”

DoE issued the EIS awards to Verizon in two components: voice and data. On voice, Verizon will incorporate new technologies and services to help meet DoE’s next-generation voice requirements, which include a transition from its TDM voice platform to IP-enabled voice services. The varying task orders will allow Verizon to provide service to all existing DOE locations as well as any future sites.

The task order for data services includes optical wave service (OWS), Ethernet transport Service (ETS), private line service (PLS), IP service (IPS), and virtual private network service (VPNS). In addition to supporting DoE’s headquarters facility in Washington, D.C., with enterprise IT services, Verizon will also engage with DoE program offices, power marketing administrations, plants, site offices, and national laboratories with mission-specific services at locations across the contiguous U.S., as well as some facilities located in England, Hawaii and Japan.
