AT&T sells circuits to DISA

The Defense Information Systems Agency has ordered $2.3 million worth of secure circuits from AT&T Government Solutions, according to a company announcement.

DISA placed the orders under a contract called DISN Transmission Services-CONUS (Continental U.S.) Extension, a multi-award contract issued in March 1999. AT&T, MCI and Sprint each hold places on the contract, and the three companies compete for orders.

AT&T's $2.3 million award represents 125 orders. The company will supply private line, point-to-point circuits that comprise the backbone of the Defense Information Systems Network.

"This news demonstrates our ability to supply secure, reliable circuits at competitive rates," said Lou Addeo, president of AT&T Government Solutions, in a written statement. "We're gratified to have been chosen for this very important business."
