GP Strategies Corp. has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The BPA will allow GP Strategies to continue to provide support for the HHS University (HHSU) learning management system (LMS), including hosting, Tier 2 helpdesk and technical support for over 120,000 users. GP Strategies estimates that the BPA has a value of approximately $3 million if all currently ordered services are continued for the base period and three option years, with the potential for greater value if additional services are ordered.
GP Strategies was contracted to implement the HHS LMS in 2007 and has been providing application, hosting and helpdesk support since the system went live. During that time, GP Strategies also provided customer interfaces and reporting solutions, upgrade services and talent management best practices to ensure HHSU meets the training needs of its constituents.
