Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications, Inc., on Nov. 12 announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Core Technologies, Inc. (CTI), one of the 9 prime contractors on the GSA Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract vehicle, to resell communications services and solutions to government agencies.
Spectrum Enterprise is now an authorized subcontractor on CTI's EIS contract for telecommunications and information technology services, originally awarded in 2017.
In addition, Spectrum Enterprise and CTI have entered into an agreement to participate in the U.S. Small Business Administration's Mentor-Protégé Program. Consistent with the guidelines of this program, Spectrum Enterprise will provide business development and marketing assistance, and has made an equity investment in CTI providing scale-up capital to enable CTI to more efficiently bid for and service federal EIS contracts.
"With dedicated resources to aggressively scale this business, our investment in the federal government market is built upon the strong foundation of the existing Spectrum Enterprise Government practice," commented Greg King, Senior Vice President, Product, Marketing, and Strategy, Spectrum Enterprise. "By partnering with Spectrum Enterprise, CTI can offer federal government agencies the reach and reliability of our wholly-owned fiber network, robust technology solutions portfolio and differentiated client experience."
Based in Norcross, Georgia, CTI is a woman-owned, minority-owned small business enterprise primarily engaged in providing a diverse range of communications systems. Since the company's inception in 1998, CTI has become a full service telecommunications and information technology integrator, with its core competencies focused in: carrier services; audio/visual communications; wire and cable infrastructure; security, and other telecommunications services.
"With our established partnership with Spectrum Enterprise and the strength of our combined teams, services and solutions portfolios, Core Technologies is even more competitively positioned to help government agencies modernize their IT infrastructure and improve service to the public," said Debbie Binette, President of CTI.
