Federal Small Business

We're proud to build partnerships with other industry leaders.

Federal agencies, state/local governments, and educational institutions need industry leaders to enable mission outcomes that enhance the citizen experience. Verizon partners with other innovative companies to do just that.

Combined with the Verizon network and the collective mindshare of some of the smartest people in the industry, we work to seamlessly and securely connect citizens and workforce, increase agility, and improve productivity to drive the success of each of our customer’s missions.

Our Commitment to Small Business.

Verizon has a documented history of developing and growing small businesses, and we are proud to work with diverse suppliers. Across Verizon, we spent, directly and indirectly, $54.8 billion in goods and services from diverse suppliers in 2019. We are a proud charter member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, a coalition of companies that spends more than $1 billion each year with diverse suppliers.

Our Public Sector Small Business Partner ecosystem includes many small disadvantaged businesses, women-owned small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses, service disabled veteran-owned small businesses, and HUBZone companies.

Why We Do It

Working with small businesses drives operational efficiencies for our customers. In the federal space, we see great value from small business with competencies that complement and enhance Verizon’s service offerings.

This is beneficial to all parties, but these relationships are especially important to the community, as they support job creation and growth in local economies.

We work with small businesses throughout the year, and are continually seeking new companies to enhance our small business ecosystem and help us provide successful customer engagements.

How We Deliver

Verizon is poised to deliver comprehensive end-to-end solutions and seamless user experiences to our Federal customers. We have selected companies that complement our experience, our capabilities and our solutions to be a part of our subcontractor ecosystem.

What We Look For

We focus on small businesses that possess extensive agency experience and a track record of delivering competitive solutions. We look for companies that have unique capabilities and experience in managed services, security and advanced communications.

Recognition

Verizon was named one of the top leaders in corporate supply diversity in 2018. We are committed to mentoring, promoting and engaging with diverse businesses in our supply chain, and believe that diverse businesses create the greatest economic impact in our communities, as well as offer innovative, high quality and cost effective solutions for Verizon to better serve our customers.

A variety of contract options. 

Our federal contracts enable us to team with best-in-class small businesses to deliver a wide range of solutions. We work with our small business providers to find the contract vehicles with the best fit.

EIS +

Under this 15-year Government Wide Acquisition Contract, federal agencies will be able to buy information technology, telecommunications services, and other enterprise solutions from Verizon. EIS is an all-encompassing contract and will provide a comprehensive yet streamlined solutions-based process for current and next-generation technology procurement. The contract features simplified pricing, improved management and operational support. 

Networx +

The Networx Universal and Enterprise contracts are the primary contracts for worldwide telecommunications for the federal government. They provide federal agencies a full range of telecommunications and network services. 

WITS 3 +

The WITS 3 (Washington Interagency Telecommunications System) contract offers local telecommunications services and products for federal agencies in the National Capital Region (NCR), which includes Washington and portions of its Maryland and Virginia suburbs. WITS 3 includes local voice, video and data services, such as voice over IP, Internet access and Ethernet services; fiber-optic services; and products and services for continuity of operations planning (COOP) for federal agencies.
