WASHINGTON -- The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has awarded a technical and management support task order for the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, Joint Requirements and Integration Office (JR&IO).

GSA's Federal Technology Service (FTS)�through its Federal Systems Integration Management (FEDSIM) Center�competitively selected Booz Allen & Hamilton from the FTS Millennia contract on behalf of its DoD client through GSA's Millennia contract. With all options exercised, the five-year performance-driven task order has an estimated value of over $64 million.

The task order supports JR&IO in a variety of technical and information management areas including functional analysis and requirements definition; data standardization, analysis for IT initiatives and portfolio management; and functional oversight for the implementation and maintenance of the Defense Integrated Military Human Resource Systems (DIMHRS). "FEDSIM excels at listening to its customers, translating needs into acquisition strategies, and selecting vendors that mirror customer requirements," said Sandra Bates, FTS Commissioner. We are confident that JR&IO will benefit from leveraging FTS's acquisition expertise."

Managing over $1.2 billion in new IT acquisitions in 2001, FEDSIM offers Federal agencies a wide range of value-added support and has a proven track record of developing innovative, award-winning solutions to government IT challenges.

GSA is a centralized federal procurement and property management agency created by Congress to improve government efficiency and help federal agencies better serve the public. It acquires, on behalf of federal agencies, office space, equipment, telecommunications, information technology, supplies, and services. GSA, comprised of 14,000 associates, provides services and solutions for the office operations of over 1 million federal workers located in 8,300 government-owned and leased buildings in 1,600 U.S. communities.
