Amentra, an industry leading business and technology consulting firm, today announced that it has won an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, single-award contract from the United States Mint (US Mint) in Washington, DC. The contract has a one-year base period and three one-year options.
Under the contract, Amentra will provide the Business Process Management (BPM) and related consulting services required to successfully evaluate, design, implement, verify and maintain an enterprise BPM program. The completed effort aims to enable an ongoing means to link and align Business and Information Technology across the US Mint. Amentra has been engaged to not only transform the US Mint's business but also its people using its signature mentoring methodology.
