AMERICAN SYSTEMS, based in Chantilly, Va., announced Feb. 1 that the company has been awarded a task order by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service Office of Integrated Technology Services to provide transition coordination support services under the GSA Connections II contract. The single-award task order is valued at $34.3 million over a period of five years.
“Working alongside government to find ways to acquire IT and communications services more efficiently is important work that saves taxpayer dollars while enabling agencies to achieve their mission more effectively,” AMERICAN SYSTEMS President and CEO Peter Smith said. “The process of transitioning to the EIS contract requires extensive planning, coordination and training — all areas in which AMERICAN SYSTEMS excels.”
GSA has created a Transition Coordination Center (TCC) to enable a seamless and efficient transition to the NS2020 Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract. AMERICAN SYSTEMS will provide the TCC with policy and strategy development, agency outreach and transition planning, inventory validation, acquisition planning, project management, training, tracking, reporting and Help Desk support.
The work will take place at a time of transition for many agencies as they make major investments in mobile and wireless solutions.
