General Analytics Awarded
Telecommunications Contract

WASHINGTON - General Analytics Corporation (GAC) today was awarded two contracts that will provide telecommunications equipment and services for Internal Revenue Service and other Department of Treasury offices in Alaska and Hawaii for up to 10 years.

IRS said the contracts, each valued at approximately $10 million, were awarded as part of the Department of Treasury Telecommunications Systems (DOTTS) program that will be implemented nationwide through the awarding of nine contracts for nine separate areas of the country.

The DOTTS contracts will provide voice and data telecommunications switching systems, electronic key systems, automated management information systems, wiring and support services ranging from design to training and maintenance. IRS said DOTTS would support its tax systems modernization by ensuring that IRS offices have the capability to be fully networked with on-line data retrieval and processing systems as these systems are put into operation.

IRS said it is the executive contract agent for Treasury responsible for all phases of the DOTTS procurement and contract administration.

The contracts to GAC are the fifth and sixth awarded competitively in the series of nine. In May 1991, three DOTTS contracts valued at $123 million were awarded to AT&T for the Northeast, Southeast and Midatlantic areas, and one valued at $39 million to US West for the Midwest area.

The three remaining DOTTS contracts for the Western, Southwest and Central areas are expected to be awarded soon.
