Guident is a leading integrator of business intelligence, management consulting, and systems engineering services to the government and commercial marketplaces.
Being one of the nine firms that have been awarded under the Bank’s Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA), Guident will provide software development and sustained engineering services. If all options are exercised, the BPA has a value estimated at $50 million. The BPA is valid for five years, with one base year and four option years.
“As the United States’ official export credit agency, the Export-Import Bank helps create and maintain American jobs by financing the export of U.S. goods and services, so the Bank must ensure its important business functions remain up-to-date,” said Dan Ackerman, Executive Vice President at Guident. “This BPA enables us to support the Bank in updating their systems as requirements emerge. We have been working closely with the Export-Import Bank for a number of years, and appreciate the agency’s continued confidence in our ability to deliver results.”
Under this contract, Guident is responsible for sustained engineering services in support of the Bank’s online administrative, financial and customer relationship management systems and related capabilities. This includes architecture design, program management, requirements definition/systems analysis, software and solutions development and integration, enterprise tool development, integration of various systems and more.
“The goal of this engagement is to operate and sustain existing capabilities, while improving agility to deploy new banking products, improve cycle time, and provide a highly innovative, creative, cost-effective, and evolving online environment,” Ackerman said. “Guident is looking forward to initiating work and continuing our support for the Export-Import Bank.”
