Vodafone First Non-US Supplier To Be Awarded Mobile Contract Under GSA Schedule 70 By US Government
Vodafone Global Enterprise - the business within Vodafone which manages the communications needs of its largest multinational customers – has become the first non-US mobile provider to be granted US Government supplier status under GSA Schedule 70.
The company will be listed as an approved supplier to provide mobile voice, data and machine to machine (M2M) services to the US Government in eight European countries: United Kingdom, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, Italy, Hungary, and Greece. Services available include central ordering, spend analytics and customer services.
Under the terms of the contract, US Government employees outside of the US will be able to access a range of standardised Vodafone services. It will now be much easier for US Government agencies such as The Department of Defense, State Department, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Justice to buy mobile solutions from Vodafone Global Enterprise.
Vodafone Global Enterprise Chief Executive Nick Jeffery said, “US Government employees and agencies working abroad will gain from flexible and cost-effective access to Vodafone’s services under this agreement. They will be better equipped to perform their role and have full visibility and control over their telecommunications costs. The mobile internet is radically transforming the way governments and organisations in all sectors operate.”
