Acquisition Solutions Inc. of Oakton, Va., won a contract worth up to $5 million from the Homeland Security Department.
The company will provide acquisition support services. Its tasks will include helping the department establish an IT Acquisition Center of Excellence, which will bring together the expertise of its procurement and technology communities.
"Our commitment is to transform government acquisition so that government leaders can focus on accomplishing their mission objectives," said Anne Reed, president of Acquisition Solutions.
Acquisition Solutions was created in 1996 to help federal agencies implement acquisition reform techniques and acquisition best practices.
Earlier this year, Acquisition Solutions was selected to provide acquisition support to the departments of Justice, Homeland Security and Treasury for the Integrated Wireless Network program, expected to be a multibillion-dollar contract award to support homeland security.
