We are proud to announce that Distributed Solutions, Inc. (DSI) was selected by the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Federal Acquisition Services (FAS), Integrated Technology Services (ITS) to provide a cloud-based, Contract Writing System as a Service (CWSS) for GSA and its client agencies. GSA’s FAS awarded DSI a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA), with a ceiling of approximately $10.5 Million, to provide a contract writing system to streamline and modernize contractual management operations.
The CWSS BPA will provide GSA with a SaaS/cloud-based, enterprise-level solution capable of managing all aspects of the acquisition lifecycle from acquisition planning to contract closeout and out of the box integration with any financial management system.
DSI’s SaaS CWSS solution will reside on a FedRAMP cloud environment supplied by Edge Hosting. Edge Hosting is a premier national FedRAMP certified IaaS and PaaS supplier selected by DSI to support our cloud-based AEON software platform and COTS tools. The CWSS is designed from the ground up to implement a secure, high availability solution that is capable of scaling to meet the servicing demand of GSA’s small, medium and large client-agency requirements.
Upon the award of the BPA Daniel E. Carr, DSI’s Founder and CEO stated that “DSI and Edge Hosting are proud of our strategic partnership in providing a solution that meets the needs of GSA’s objectives for a Contract Writing System as a Service. We are excited to partner with GSA in empowering the acquisition community by providing them with the tools and resources needed to meet their mission”
This award is on the heels of the recent decision by USPTO to award DSI a BPA to implement a similar solution called the eAcquisitions Tool. The eAcquisitions Tool has been successfully implemented at USPTO and integrated with their financial management system to provide unprecedented visibility into the entire acquisition process. The USPTO solution is built on DSI’s knowledge-enabled AEON platform. This is the same AEON platform being used at VA to support contract management for over the past 10 years while successfully processing over $17 Billion in awards in FY2015.
