Gary Wall, former Networx program manager at the Department of Health and Human Services and CEO of the Coastal Communications Consulting Group, discusses how the government shutdown affected GSA’s new telecommunications contract, and why it could be made worse by other problems down the line.


The General Services Administration’s telecommunications transition could hit another snag. The Departments of Commerce and Justice, two agencies key to the rollout of Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions, were both closed due to the partial government shutdown. Gary Wall, former Networx program manager at the Department of Health and Human Services and CEO of the Coastal Communications Consulting Group, said that while the shutdown’s impact will be seen soon, any issues that result from it will be made worse by other problems. “It certainly didn’t help matters. If anybody wasn’t ready to submit their fair opportunity packages to GSA prior to the shutdown, they’re no better off. I think the agencies that were on the path to do all that have to do a self-assessment and report back and work with GSA to deal with schedule changes that may have occurred,” Wall said. “During Networx, we had effects from Superstorm Sandy. We always have these things. It might not lead to an extension at the end, but compounding with the other problems that the government may discover in flight. It will have an impact somehow.”
