Marine Corps plans support services buying portal

The Marine Corps Systems Command has hired Appian to build the Enterprise Procurement Portal for its Acquisition Center for Support Services.

Under a six-month, $620,000 contract, the Vienna, Va., company will integrate existing Corps acquisition databases to give the command electronic access to a pool of support services vendors, reduce procurement lead times and realize cost savings.

'We were looking for a procurement tool to manage a large vendor base and minimize an extensive, administrative workload,' center director Mark Hoyland said. 'Appian's past performance in building portals like the Army Knowledge Online portal and the Transportation Department eProcurement portal, as well as its approach to problem solving, was a large part of why we selected them as a partner.'

The portal will go live by mid-August, Hoyland said.
