MetTel Secures $14.6M Contract with Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

By Greg Tavarez April 15, 2024

Government agencies are entrusted with sensitive data and critical operations. Staying attuned with the theme that “businesses need reliable and secure mobile connectivity” that we often write about across our Internet Telephony, Cloud Computing and MSP Today sites, government agencies also require robust mobile solutions that prioritize security, efficiency and user experience.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB, is tasked with safeguarding consumer financial markets. So, to address its security need, it recently awarded MetTel a contract valued at $14.6 million over five years to provide critical mobility services.

MetTel (News - Alert) is a global communications solutions provider for businesses and government agencies. The company designs and deploys tailored connectivity and networking solutions for voice, data, mobility and IoT by leveraging its global private network and a broad portfolio of innovative technology.

The contract, awarded under ID 2036 with reference IDV ID 4732, utilizes the Small Business Set-Aside provision within GSA (News - Alert) Schedule 70, a streamlined procurement vehicle for federal agencies. The agreement holds an upper limit of $60 million if all optional terms are exercised, which shows CFPB's confidence in MetTel's capabilities.

CFPB's decision reflects MetTel's proven expertise in network aggregation. The company offers a wireless service solution. It also provides a single, seamless and comprehensively managed platform for deploying and managing mobile devices across the CFPB organization.

This award specifically highlights the strengths of MetTel's Mobile Device as a Service, or MDaaS, solution. MDaaS offers a comprehensive suite of features designed to streamline mobile device management for enterprises. 

These features include a centralized customer portal, mobile device staging and kitting, mobile device management software integration, AI-powered order-to-deliver automation, 24/7 customer support and device protection and secure device recycling.

What these features do for the CFPB is that the CFPB benefits from a user-friendly online portal that provides real-time insights into device usage, billing and account management. The CFPB also can enforce security policies, manage applications and remotely wipe devices if necessary. This is on top of what MetTel will bring, such as handling the pre-configuration and packaging of devices as well as using AI to automate the ordering and delivery process to minimize delays and enhancing overall efficiency.

In other words, by selecting MetTel's MDaaS solution, the CFPB gains a trusted partner with a proven track record in delivering secure, scalable and cost-effective mobility solutions.
