How to Become a CenturyLink Networx Customer
To become a CenturyLink Networx customer, your agency must first select a Designated Agency Representative (DAR). The DAR is the essential link between your agency and CenturyLink when acquiring products and services from the Networx contract.
Once you select a DAR, an Appointment Letter must be written by an "obligating authority," such as agency director, chief finance officer, contracting officer or chief information officer. This letter delegates the, telecommunications procurement responsibilities of the DAR. View a sample Appointment Letter. A sample Appointment Letter is also available within the General Services Administration's (GSA's) DAR Guidelines.
After selecting a DAR and writing the Appointment Letter, follow the steps outlined below. If you have questions, contact or call the Customer Support Office at 1 866-GSA-NETWORX (1 866-472-6389)
STEP ONE: Agency Submits Appointment Letter
After selecting a DAR and completing the Appointment Letter, submit it via mail, e-mail or fax to:
CenturyLink Government Services, Inc.
Networx Contractor Program Office (CPO)
Attn: Program Manager
4250 N. Fairfax Drive
Arlington, VA 22203
STEP TWO: CPO Reviews Letter
The Contractor Program Office (CPO) reviews the Appointment Letter.
STEP THREE: CPO Disposition of Letter
After reviewing the Appointment Letter, the CPO can either return it to the agency for any necessary corrections or other recommended disposition, or submit it to your CenturyLink Networx Account Consultant.
STEP FOUR: CPO Submits Letter to AC
If the Appointment Letter requires no corrections or other disposition, the Contractor Program Office will submit it to your CenturyLink Networx Account Consultant to set up your agency's account.
STEP FIVE: AC Sets Up Account
Your CenturyLink Networx Account Consultant (AC) will work with your DAR(s) to establish your agency's billing and account data (e.g. DAR profiles, Agency Hierarchy Codes) within CenturyLink's systems. Locate your agency's Networx Account Consultant.
