21 firms share $5B Connections II prize

Twenty-one companies have won a share of the General Services Administration’s $5 billion Connections II contract for telecommunications and other network support.

Nine of the companies are small businesses, the rest fall into the full-and-open category. The companies will compete for task orders under the 10-year contract, which has a four-year base and six one-year options.
