FAS's Best-in-Class Designated Solutions

Best-in-Class (BIC) means that something has been designated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as a preferred governmentwide solution that:

  • Allows acquisition experts to take advantage of pre-vetted, governmentwide contract solutions;
  • Supports a governmentwide migration to solutions that are mature and market-proven;
  • Assists in the optimization of spend, within the governmentwide category management framework; and
  • Increases the transactional data available for agency level and governmentwide analysis of buying behavior.
