“This is a big win for Concert Technologies. We are proud to play a key role in GSA’s effort to bring the best technology to the federal sector and to implement that technology in a way that reduces costs, transforms business processes and improves environmental sustainability,” commented Dennis Mazaris, president and founder of Concert Technologies.
Concert Technologies’ team includes, CDW-G, Dell, Telcordia, Johnson Controls, BCCP Consulting, Panduit, SuprTEK, Ventraq and Aquilent. Mazaris added, “Connections II leverages the Concert team’s nationwide and international deployment and support networks to address customer’s challenges and to implement solutions with high quality, a secure supply chain and real efficiency.”
In addition to providing new solutions and support for an agency’s legacy platforms, the CNX II program designates four solution sets:
-- Communications and networking including planning and construction of communications networks including sensors, servers and storage solutions. Building/campus facility preparation including all site preparation to support telecommunications distribution systems such as cabling and wiring, power systems, and associated support structures and services.

Customer service and technical support including help desk, Website and electronic bulletin board construction and maintenance and back office support.
The CNX II Program is a multiple award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with a three year and three month base period with six one-year options.

Connections II can be used by all federal agencies, authorized federal contractors, agency-sponsored universities and laboratories, and authorized state, local and tribal governments. “The award of a GSA Connections II contract puts Concert Technologies in a new league as a competitor for government technology rollouts,” said Warren Suss, President of Suss Consulting.
