Global Services has launched a new branding campaign that includes a new website and corporate logo. Global Services –Your Team for Winning Federal Contracts went live on May 10,2005. Much of the reasoning behind the company’s new branding was first and foremost to re-establish the organization as a new corporate entity that is separate from the old Global Services, Inc. that ended in December 2004. The new branding campaign also allows our company to reiterate our corporate commitment to work collaboratively with our clients to create customized business development solutions that match your specific federal goals and capabilities.

VETS is a GSA sponsored contract that will award multiple service-disabled veteran owned companies with a 5-year, $5B IDIQ contract in the specialized areas of information technology services.
Alliant will be a similar 5 year, $50B IDIQ contract with multiple awards to both large and small businesses. GSA has established two separate contracts for large and small businesses and expects about 20 awards to be made by the end of 2005. Currently, GSA is anticipating that both Alliant RFPs will be released in July 2005. For more information contact Global Services ( email@example.com ) or visit the GSA website at www.gsa.gov

GSA Reorganizes and Creates Federal Acquition Service
On June 2, 2005, GSA released its draft reorganization plan that will create the Federal Acquisition Service (FAS). FAS will replace the Federal Technology Service (FTS) and the Federal Supply Service (FSS), whose activities will be combined to form the new entity. GSA indicates that the new FAS will make agency more efficient and more customer-focused. In a memo to associates, GSA Administrator Stephen A. Perry highlighted the following changes:
Customer Relationship Management: will play a strong role in the new Service, helping FAS better understand customer requirements and become a strategic partner in helping to meet them.
Acquisition Management: will ensure that FAS activities are fully compliant with laws, regulations and policies, and that operating practices are consistent across business lines and Regions.
Integrated Technology Services: combines the information technology, professional services and telecommunications business lines.
General Supplies and Services: groups GSA business lines that acquire a broad range of commercial products, as well as some closely-related services and GSA specialized logistics-based activities.
Travel & Personal Property Disposal Services: The business lines in this portfolio will operate with their own respective supplier industries, but share commonalities that provide opportunities for synergy and scale.
