AZNet III - Arizona Network
Program Basics

AZNet III is the official telecommunications program servicing all State of Arizona agencies, boards, and commissions with outsourced voice and networking services and equipment, which are contracted at a predictable, user-based monthly charge.

Contract oversight is performed by the Enterprise Infrastructure & Communications (EIC) team within the ASET division of ADOA.


In accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes § 41-712, the Arizona Department of Administration (ADOA) was tasked with establishing and overseeing a statewide contract for telecommunication services and equipment, known as AZNet (Arizona Network).

As of October 1, 2020, the State of Arizona entered into a 5-year contract named AZNet III (with up to 2 additional 1-year extensions). This contract was broken into three towers: Network/Security/Wi-Fi, Voice Communications, and a dedicated Call Center (with Lumen awarded all three towers).

Kari’s Law and the Ray Baum’s Act

The passing of new federal legislation (Kari’s Law and the Ray Baum’s Act) requires updated compliance for making 911 calls. Kari's Law removes the need to dial 9 prior to getting an outside line and requires that the front desk/security receive a notification that a 911 call was made. The Ray Baum Act cites the need for a dispatchable location from a multi-line telephone system. To learn more, visit the 911inform Compliance Project page.
