The General Services Administration needs local telecommunications services for federal agencies in New York and New Jersey. The contracts will replace the Metropolitan Area Acquisition contracts.
Contractors must provide switch-based voice service, analog business service and voice over IP and wireless services. They also must offer upgrades and enhancements throughout the life of the contracts.
The New York MAA contract will expire in May 2007, and the Buffalo MAA contract will expire in February 2008. The new contracts will be for two years with three one-year options.

The Architect of the Capitol is looking for a television backup system for network and cable TV programming, as well as internally generated coverage of legislative hearings.

The system comprises 18 channels, including news, financial and business information and other material. This content is combined with other programming and internally generated material and transmitted to users across Capitol Hill.
