SiloSmashers Inc. has won a pair of contracts from the Interior Department totaling $9.7 million to help merge two previously separate federal acquisition centers into a single procurement organization.
The Fairfax, Va., company will provide project management and liaison support for the merger of the Interior Department's National Business Center with GovWorks' Federal Acquisition Center into a single line of business within NBC.
Under a three-year, $4.5 million contract SiloSmashers will provide acquisition line of business strategic planning and meeting facilitation. Under a separate three-year, $5.2 million contract the company will provide project management support.
The NBC offers a full range of administrative services to federal agencies, in addition to managing acquisitions and federal assistance. The business-like operating principles of GovWorks will continue in the new organization, department officials said.
