GSA NS2020 Project (Completed)
Serve as a liaison between GSA, Government and Industry to drive collaborative conversations around NS2020 timelines, vehicle requirements and transition. The focus of projects/meetings will be on issues that are not procurement related.
The COI will create responses to GSA inquiries, develop and deliver white papers, support meetings and industry days.
GSA’s Network Services 2020 initiative is one example of how the Networks & Telecommunications Community of Interest members engage, learn and lead collaboration on federal telecommunications issues. This initiative looks at the future of the government’s telecommunications systems and strategies and will have an immeasurable impact on how federal agencies procure and manage their telecommunications requirements well into the next decade and beyond. Recent recommendations addressed international implications of Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) and the RFI for Management and Operations Plan (MOPS). According to GSA, nine of the 12 ACT-IAC recommendations have been implemented.
