To insure that customer premise telecommunications equipment (CPE) used by state agencies and institutions for voice networks, data networks, converged networks and voice over internet protocol telephone systems, is procured at the lowest possible cost, the Virginia Information Technologies Agency shall competitively procure such equipment, whether by purchase or lease, in Requests-for-Proposals that are separate from the provision of voice and data services.
