In July 2017, GSA awarded the 15 year, $50 billion, Best-In-Class telecommunications contract - Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS). EIS is designed to help agencies transform their legacy IT in parallel with the push for governmentwide IT modernization. The Office of Management & Budget (OMB) considers EIS to be a critical program for all federal agencies and a key opportunity to leverage a total buying solution to meet mission-critical IT needs. Many agencies are using EIS to be their network of the future - supporting digital transformation, virtual interactions with stakeholders, and the emergence of new, innovative technologies from our industry partners.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attend this session to hear more about how EIS fits into IT modernization on a governmentwide level
  • Learn about the key features of the contract and how it specifically meets modernization criteria
  • Get information regarding the tools GSA is making available to help agencies through their transformations
  • Understand the successes and challenges agencies are tackling in order to make this transition a success
