ICE Wants One Supplier for All Its Mobile Needs
May 13, 2013
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is looking for a single company to cover all its mobile needs, from providing equipment and data services to mobile device management and services to improve cell coverage inside its buildings.
The provider should also offer a Web portal where ICE can order additional devices, according to contracting documents posted Friday, and it should provide access to multiple cellular carriers including At&T, Verizon and Sprint.
“ICE currently has multiple wireless users deployed in the field throughout the nation utilizing services from several major communication firms,” the agency said.
The White House has urged agencies to pare down the number of separate contracts they maintain for “commodity information technology” such as smartphones, laptops and wireless Internet.
