Network Services 2020 Strategy


Network Services 2020 is a strategy, not a contract. 

We are using our Network Services 2020 (NS2020) strategy to refine plans for our future telecommunications and IT infrastructure portfolio,  which will include recommendations for the future, including evolution beyond Networx and other current contracts. 

We envision a future strategic sourcing center for government telecommunications and IT that aligns government needs and industry capability.
