• The Standard Army Management Information Systems Headquarters awarded two seven-year blanket purchasing agreements potentially worth $277 million to KPMG LLP of New York and Titan Systems Corp. of San Diego.

    The awards will help STAMIS standardize its business processes, said Kevin Carroll, program executive officer for STAMIS.

    'We needed to use knowledge management as an organization. The problem was that we had some 90 vendors supporting us,' Carroll said. 'Now, these two partners will help us standardize our processes so that we may deliver consistent, high-quality products that will meet the needs of our customer'the soldier.'

    KMPG and Titan will compete to win task order awards.
