In 2021, FLR released a competitive solicitation via an Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) to prospective vendors for the “Procurement of Backbone Network Equipment, Optical Transport, and Related Software and Services” primarily for the purpose of obtaining equipment, software, and services to upgrade the FLR backbone.

As part of the ITN, FLR included a “Use by Others” clause that would allow for purchases of selected equipment configurations by FLR Equity Partners and Affiliates.

After a formal evaluation of responses, FLR awarded a contract to General DataTech (GDT) as a VAR for selected products and services from Cisco and Ciena. In many instances, there are significant savings available through this contract.
