APPENDIX L
LOCAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICES

1 PURPOSE

This appendix establishes policies and assigns responsibility for the management and use of local telecommunications services within the Department of Agriculture (USDA).

2 BACKGROUND

Public Law 104-106, the Information Technology Management Reform Act (ITMRA) effective February 10, 1996, repeals the 1965 Brooks Act. Consequently, regulatory control of telecommunications and the General Services Administration's (GSA's) mandatory oversight role ended August 8, 1996. However GSA has implemented a strategy of the Metropolitan Area Acquisition (MAA) Program to provide local voice and data telecommunications services to meet the needs of its Federal customers. The Local Telecommunications Advisory Committee (LTAC) was established by GSA to address the local services requirements and priorities of the various Federal Government agencies.
