Verizon receives EIS Authority to Operate
Verizon said it has received the Authority to Operate under the General Service Administration's Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract. EIS is a government-wide contract that provides a unique opportunity for federal agencies to leverage the government's buying power to procure next-generation communications services. Agencies are in the process of moving to EIS for purchasing information technology and telecommunications infrastructure. "We're excited to receive our ATO and will utilize best practices and lessons learned to support agencies' unique requirements and transition them to EIS quickly and efficiently," said Mike Maiorana, senior vice president, public sector, Verizon. "We look forward to building upon our decades-long relationship with federal government and delivering next generation, mission-enabling services to address government and citizen needs."
