Windstream gets nine-year GSA green buildings deal

Windstream has nabbed a nine-year multi-million dollar contract with the General Services Administration's (GSA) Public Building Service green buildings initiative.

The deal expands on an existing relationship between Windstream and the GSA and gives Windstream the opportunity to provide telecommunications and technology to more than 1,200 GSA-owned buildings and properties.

"We have a long history of providing the customized solutions required by federal agencies to operate efficiently and securely," Mike Magliato, Windstream's vice president of government sales and solutions said in a corporate press release.

The new deal covers buildings run by the Department of Justice (DoJ)/U.S. Attorneys, Department of Labor, the IRS and Social Security.
