July 1, 2017, WaTech began implementing its new approach to procuring network services to meet its goals of expanding access to vendors, increasing speed to installation for circuits, harmonizing contract management across all vendors, increasing flexibility for upgrades and other technical needs.
Any vendor interested in selling goods/services within scope of the Master Services Agreement (“MSA”) and related Technical Addendums may participate in our procurements once both the Vendor and WaTech have signed the MSA and the applicable Technical Addendums.
WaTech has the following Technical Addendums available for Vendors to utilize:
- Wireline Ethernet Services
- Fixed Wireless Services
- PRI T-1 Voice Services
- Broadband ISP Services Addendum
- Data TDM Services Addendum
- WaTech SIP Services Voice Services Addendum
WaTech will send bids to any vendors with a signed MSA and Technical Addendum for the service being procured. This approach will increase competition, as anyone who signs the MSA can participate in the bidding process.
WaTech is working on Addendums for services such as:
- Broadband ISP Services
- Enterprise ISP Services
- Wavelength DWDM Services
- Data TDM Services
- Dark Fiber Services
- Analog Voice Services
- SIP Voice Services
- Centrex Voice Services
Please review a copy of the Master Service Agreement, Wireline Ethernet Addendum, Fixed Wireless Technical Addendum, PRI T-1 Voice Services Addendum, Broadband ISP Services Addendum, Data TDM Services Addendum and WaTech SIP Services Voice Services Addendum. If you are interested in establishing an MSA with CTS for bidding, please contact Susan Steele, Senior Contract Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Susan will work with you to assign you a contract number, issue you the MSA along with instructions on how to complete the document, and will work you on countersignatures.
Please note, you will not be able to bid on any procurements released under this MSA/Technical Addendum until you have returned your signed copy. In the event you bid on a procurement released under this without a signed MSA, your bid will be disqualified.
