November 25, 2013
The General Services Administration’s Networx telecommunications contract saved agencies more than $678 million in 2013, according to an agency announcement.
Bill Lewis, GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service integrated technology service’s Networx program manager, said in a blog post Nov. 20 the savings were about 35 percent off of regular prices.
In 2013, agencies spent more than $1.3 billion on services from toll-free numbers to voice, data and video services. Since 2007, agency use of those services has increased by 800 percent, but the cost has only grown by 43 percent, according to GSA.
