What's the holdup?

* Delays in awarding the FTS 2001 contract.

* Agencies' decision not to put new technology in place until after

the Y2K rollover.

* GSA's inability to force transitions because FTS 2001 is not mandatory.

* Extension of the FTS 2000 contract to allow agencies additional time

to transition.

* FTS 2000 vendors offering the same services and prices as FTS 2001.

* Agencies not switching like-for-like services and in turn needing

to redesign networks before transitioning to FTS 2001.

* FTS 2000 incumbent did not win the FTS 2001 contract; agencies anxious

about switching their long-distance service provider.
