Washington, DC -- The General Services Administration (GSA) has awarded the first in a series of competitive contracts to support the Office of Management (OMB) and Budget Lines of Business (LoB) to SiloSmashers of Fairfax, Virginia GSA announced today.
GSA, which manages LoB organizing functions for OMB, awarded the blanket purchase order (BPA) on March 16. The BPA ends Sept. 30, 2006. Partner agencies will manage the LoBs, once they are up and running.
SiloSmashers will help the LoBs expand government-wide use of electronic government to advance goals in the President’s Management Agenda to make government more efficient, effective and citizen-centric.
OMB task forces developing the three new LoBs -- Geospatial, IT Infrastructure Optimization, and Budget Formulation and Execution -- are seeking information from industry, nonprofits and federal agencies, as they develop common business solutions, a draft technical architecture and a business case for future investments.
These LoBs will continue to provide opportunities for many different contractors to submit proposals, in response to requests published periodically on FedBizOpps.gov.
