FEMA renews AT&T contract

AT&T Government Solutions has received the nod to continue operating the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Network Operations Center. FEMA awarded AT&T a four-year, $8.9 million contract after conducting a competition.

AT&T has been involved in the design, installation, operation and management of the center for 16 years, according to the company. FEMA uses the center to remotely monitor and maintain its communications network, the applications that run on it and the information technology equipment and infrastructure associated with it. The center is part of FEMA's Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center in Northern Virginia.

Under the contract, AT&T will continue to provide networking, program management, configuration of local-area networks and wide-area networks, videoconferencing setup, and other duties.
