Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Winvale, a leading GSA Schedule consultancy and government contractor, announced last week that its client InterMedia has been awarded a GSA Schedule contract effective June 8th 2011. The contract allows InterMedia, a leading research-based consultancy active worldwide, to offer its cutting-edge research products and services to the federal government more quickly and more efficiently.
"We're very excited to have this GSA Schedule in place, as it will allow government customers to procure our services more easily and with minimum delay. We're confident that this contract will help us grow our federal market and broaden our federal client base," said Ambassador Brian E. Carlson, InterMedia’s Government Business Development Specialist and a Career Minister of the Foreign Service of the United States of America (ret.).
InterMedia has current Cleared Facility status and is now listed under the Mission Oriented Business Integrated Services (MOBIS), Schedule 874, contract number GS-10F-0297X. To expedite government purchases, InterMedia will have its research services available on GSA Advantage! (http://www.gsaadvantage.gov), the government's electronic ordering system.
InterMedia has already been working with a variety of federal government clients since its founding in 1996. Major clients include the Department of State, USAID, the Broadcasting Board of Governors and the Department of Defense. InterMedia is a member of ESOMAR, the premier industry organization for global research, and adheres to ESOMAR’s strict quality standards.
Establishing a GSA Schedule Contract requires a solid understanding and in-depth knowledge of government contracts and regulations. With the guidance and support of Winvale, InterMedia was awarded their GSA Schedule Contract in record time with terms, conditions and discounts that will help the company achieve success in growing its government business.
“We are proud of our work in accelerating InterMedia’s growth in the federal marketplace,” said David Sonde, Winvale Managing Partner, “They are a group of highly-experienced industry leaders whose customers at the federal level will appreciate the simplicity the Schedule offers them.”
InterMedia’s GSA Schedule award is a direct result of a rigorous process in which the General Services Administration evaluated the company’s professional capabilities, organizational structure, performance history, and customer satisfaction levels, among other criteria. The GSA’s review confirmed InterMedia’s qualifications to perform work directly for federal government entities.
