Reston, Va. (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
QinetiQ North America (QNA) announced today it was awarded two task orders under the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Information Technology and Development Services (ITDS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). The Enterprise Data Repository Management (EDRM) System and Building Information Modeling (BIM) Server Support task orders have a combined value of $15 million over a period of 6 years.
The Public Buildings-Information Technology Service (PB-ITS) program provides technology solution services for the GSA Public Buildings Service (PBS). The Office of the PB-ITS’ mission is to strategically acquire information and technology designed to improve the quality, timeliness and cost effectiveness of PBS service delivery to its customers. The PB-ITS program manages the design, development, implementation and maintenance of all national PBS software applications, as well as the relationships between the PB-ITS’ office and PBS Central Office business lines, regional customers and stakeholders.
PBS relies on the data and reports maintained in the EDRM system and it is essential that these services are managed by experts in data management, data and system architecture and quality assurance. Under the EDRM task order, QNA is charged with advancing PB-ITS’ enterprise architecture and its enterprise-wide view of public building data that is critical to understanding the factors affecting cost and energy usage across the PBS inventory. This effort requires the integration and reconciliation of data from real estate acquisition, real property asset management, design and construction, client solutions and budget and financial management.
Under the BIM task order, QNA has been awarded the continued development and support services for their three dimensional and four-dimensional BIM system. The BIM Server will serve as the central repository of BIM information for all GSA users. Specific services are expected to include: program and project management support, release/enhancement development and implementation, operational system maintenance and application support, security and direct support to the Enterprise Service Center to support the backup/restore, user management or system reboot services to the production server.
“We are excited to support GSA through these critical task orders on the GSA-ITDS BPA,” said John Sutton, executive vice president and general manager of QNA’s Mission Solutions business unit. “This expanded partnership gives us an opportunity to apply our expertise in software development and enterprise IT to the entire GSA organization.”
For more than 14 years and across more than 25 projects, QNA has been providing comprehensive IT support services to PBS. Services have included: project oversight, enterprise solution development, and application maintenance in support of GSA’s business and strategic IT objectives.
