CenturyLink Wins Marine Corps Community Services Headquarters Contract

WASHINGTON, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) recently won a contract sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) headquarters in Quantico, Va., to design, procure, configure and upgrade all equipment necessary to provide MCCS with a virtual private network. The one-year contract, which includes four one-year options, is valued at up to $3.5 million over the next five years.

In addition to managed virtual private network (VPN) services, CenturyLink will provide Internet and point-to-point circuits that will connect 37 Marine Corps locations across the continental U.S. CenturyLink's VPN will provide MCCS with a reliable, secure, cost effective, managed service solution that exceeds stringent technical performance standards.

The network will support MCCS in its mission to provide quality-of-life services and programs to members of the Marines Corps and their families . The MCCS system generates more than $1 billion in annual sales from a wide variety of business operations that are used to help fund non-revenue generating MCCS programs.

"CenturyLink is proud to win this contract to provide a first-class private data network that will help Marine Corps Community Services offer important wellness and recreation services to Marines and their families," said Diana Gowen, CenturyLink Government senior vice president and general manager.

CenturyLink also recently won a contract to provide voice, data network and telecommunications infrastructure services to the Marine Corps Combat Development Command in Quantico and the Marine Corps Barracks in Washington, D.C., that could be worth up to $8.5 million over the next two years. That contract followed two previous procurements for these services that were also awarded to CenturyLink, marking more than a dozen years of successful company support of and collaboration with the Marines at Quantico.

CenturyLink is ranked No. 48 on Washington Technology's 2013 Top 100 list of federal government IT contractors.
