October 8, 2019
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Creative Associates International has been selected as an eligible provider of services, including project management, consulting and research globally, to U.S government agencies, the company announced today.
The global development organization is one of 10 recent awardees that may compete for specific task orders issued by U.S. agencies. The five-year Indefinite Quantity/Indefinite Delivery contract is part of the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services unrestricted contract for Pool 2, also known as OASIS UNR Pool 2.
OASIS has been designated best-in-class by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget as a preferred government-wide approach to optimize purchasing processes, helping agencies to “buy smarter.”
“It is an honor to be selected as a holder of this best-in-class contract mechanism that enables Creative to assist other agencies of the U.S. government,” says Leland Kruvant, President and CEO of Creative Associates International. “By working with the General Services Administration, which touches all federal agencies, we hope to make a difference across many sectors and services and continue to support the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Department of State.”
With expertise in research, program management and procurement, among other areas, Creative is ready to support the government in key areas, most notably research and development in the social sciences and humanities.
The 10 new awardees of OASIS UNR Pool 2, including Creative, bring the total holders of OASIS to 35 contractors. According the U.S. Government Services Administration, this recent pool was designed to broaden participation and competition and expand the pool of vetted industry partners available to support federal agencies.
