GSA taps small biz team for EA
The General Services Administration awarded the government's highest profile enterprise architecture support contract to a team of three small businesses.
Advanced Performance Consulting Group of Washington, the prime contractor, along with Touchstone Consulting Group, also of Washington, and High Performance Technology Inc. of Reston, Va., won the $6.7 million contract to support the Office of Management and Budget's Federal Enterprise Architecture Program Management Office. The contract is for 15 months with two one-year options.
GSA, which has executive procurement authority for OMB, considered four bids, including one from incumbent vendor Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. and one from the Logistics Management Institute, both of McLean, Va.
Many large integrators originally were interested in the procurement, but GSA and OMB requirements on avoiding a conflict of interest reduced the field of bidders.
