Five picked for OMB initiatives
Five vendors have been tapped by the General Services Administration to support the Office of Management and Budget's lines of business consolidation initiatives.
GSA will compete task orders among Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va.; Grant Thornton LLP of Chicago; Performance Management Consulting Inc. of Alexandria, Va.; SiloSmashers Inc. of Vienna, Va.; and the Touchstone division of SRA International Inc. of Fairfax, Va.
The contract has a $2 million a year ceiling and is worth $10 million over five years, according to John Sindelar, GSA's acting administrator in the Office of Governmentwide Policy. OMB and GSA are paying for the work partly through the E-Government Fund, for which Congress allocated $3 million in 2006.
The companies will support three new lines of business: budget formulation, geospatial and IT infrastructure; and six existing lines: financial management, human resources, grants management, case management, federal health architecture and IT security.
The task orders would include development and analysis of requests for information, development of common solutions and target architecture and joint business cases for each line of business, Sindelar said.
