Acquisition Solutions formally adopts new name

ASI Government more closely reflects company's business

Acquisition Solutions Inc., a public-sector consulting company, has formally changed its name today to ASI Government to reflect its intention to specialize in performance management solutions for the government.

“The name ASI Government reflects our firm’s commitment to a broader array of research, consulting, training and tools to help government agencies deliver better results,” said ASI President and CEO Anne Reed, in a statement dated Sept. 1.

The company first announced its intention to make the change in July.

“We’ve made significant investments over the last few years to augment our industry-leading acquisition practice with additional capabilities in complementary disciplines such as organizational development, IT management, and program and portfolio management,” she added.

“With this broader capability, we have a unique ability to integrate the management disciplines required by today's public-sector leaders to achieve their program performance objectives,” Reed said.

In January, ASI purchased the majority of ICOR Partners LLC, a firm that provides strategy, transformation and business improvement consulting to government organizations.

Reed said at the time that ICOR Partners would broaden her company’s footprint in the civilian government market because “ICOR perfectly complements our expertise in acquisition, program management and knowledge management.”

Gorgonzola: you are clearly misinformed. OFPP's policy issued earlier this year made clear that ASI does not perform any of the 20 functions deemed inherently governmental - nor would ASI ever do so, since previous policy made clear that it'd be improper for any firm to do so. And when it comes to conflicts of interest,there are dozens of firms providing acquisition support that also build systems for the government. ASI, in contrast, is one of the few pure-play advisory firms in the market. ASI's committment to avoiding the conflicts of interest that plague many of its competitors is a differentiator for the firm -- and it's a big reason ASI has actively supported the DoD's attempts to strengthen the conflict of interest rules at a time when most contractors have been fighting it. You'll have a hard time finding a firm more committed to being a pure, independent, trusted advisor to government than ASI.

Name change aside: don't the service offerings of this company to the government constitute inherently governmental functions for the most part? And if it is selling serives other than acquisition support to the government, doesn't that set up a conflict of interest perception or reality that the company always claimed it did not have?
