USPS Awards AT&T Managed Service Contracts Worth More Than $53.5M

By Laura Stotler

AT&T has been awarded two major managed service contracts by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), totaling more than $53.5 million. The larger contract, worth more than $50 million, is for enhancement of data network connectivity to USPS retail and support locations throughout all 50 states and U.S. territories.

An additional contract, valued at around $3.5 million, has AT&T providing Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Service (MTIPS) to USPS headquarters in Washington D.C. AT&T will also provide the service to two major USPS data centers in California and Minnesota.

The MTIPS service was established by the U.S. General Services Administration to enable U.S. federal agencies to securely connect to the public Internet. It governs other external connections as well.

AT&T has a long-standing relationship with the federal government, providing network-enabled solutions as well as IT and software engineering expertise. The telecom provides a variety of voice, data, video and managed solutions with a focus on cyber security, network and application solutions and mission support for the U.S. government.

"Winning these two contracts from the U.S. Postal Service is a reflection of AT&T's ability to deliver results for our federal clients both in existing critical-infrastructure operations and in new directions in which they are headed," said Stacy Schwartz, vice president of AT&T's Federal Government business unit. "We look forward to continuing to support USPS as they advance their mission in the digital age."
