Though some agencies will not meet the General Services Administration’s Sept. 30 deadline to award task orders for the massive Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions telecommunications contract, they’re making progress and GSA does not anticipate extending any of the other related deadlines, Director of GSA’s Office of Telecommunication Services Allen Hill said Wednesday.
“I’ll say this—it is extremely important to be deliberate in the beginning. There’s a lot of mission needs that agencies have and they are complex,” Hill said at an event hosted by ACT-IAC in Washington. “And it’s easy for an outsider to look at things and say, ‘Why isn't it going faster?’ But we have a responsibility to the American public to not only modernize but to not break our services that we provide to the public.”
