ARLINGTON, Va. -- The Defense Information Systems Agency/Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DISA/DITCO) has awarded Qwest Communications (NYSE: Q) a multi-year task order for advanced data services valued at more than $100 million.

Under the terms of the agreement, Qwest Government Services will provide Internet Protocol Services (IPS) to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as it migrates to Networx, the largest government communications contract program ever developed by the U.S. General Services Administration.

When the task order is fully implemented, Qwest will be the sole provider of IPS, which is based on Qwest’s iQ Internet Service, for the Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy, as well as other DoD agencies.

“Qwest is a longtime communications partner of the DoD,” said Diana Gowen, senior vice president and general manager of Qwest Government Services in Arlington, Va. “We are pleased that through this task order Qwest will continue its relationship with DoD to provide advanced data services, which are crucial components of our nation’s defense systems.”
