GSA postpones major telecom contract

The General Services Administration notified bidders on its estimated $20 billion, 10-year "Networx" telecommunications contract that it had postponed the award dates until 2007 but didn't say why. The telecom contract, the largest ever to be awarded by the GSA, attracted bids from AT&T, Sprint Nextel, Qwest and Verizon. Gee, government is usually so transparent; it's surprising that there's so much mystery surrounding this. (Of course, that's a tongue-in-cheek comment, but you can't hear the sarcastic tone of my voice...)
