The Interior Department has awarded a pair of contracts totaling $9.7 million to SiloSmashers Inc. to help merge two previously separate federal acquisition centers into a single procurement organization.
SiloSmashers, based in Fairfax, Va., will provide project management and liaison support for the merger of Interior's National Business Center with GovWorks' Federal Acquisition Center into a single line of business within the NBC.
Under a three-year, $4.5 million contract the company will provide acquisition line-of-business strategic planning and meeting facilitation. Under a separate three-year, $5.2 million contract the company will provide project management support.
The NBC offers a full range of administrative services to federal agencies, in addition to managing acquisitions and federal assistance.William Welsh is the deputy editor of
