Vienna, VA, 11 December 2007 - Model Driven Solutions, a Division of Data Access Technologies, Inc., won another major task from GSA for Human Resourse Enterprise Architecture under the One GSA EA. The Team has, to date, won all five bids let under the GSA Blanket Purchase Agreement awarded about two years ago. Partners on this bid included Booz|Allen|Hamilton and OmniSolve.
Model Driven Solutions has been working with the Office of the CIO, its Chief Technology Officer and Chief Architect for the past three years to develop the One GSA Enterprise Architecture. In its efforts to extend this architecture across all of GSA, the agency is issuing a series of Request for Quotes (RFQs) to cover GSA Enterprise Architecture activities and procurements over a five year period.  This award is the fifth awarded by GSA, all to the Model Driven Solutions Team.
This Task Order is to develop both an "As-Is" and "To-Be" Enterprise Architecture Segment for the GSA Core Human Resourse processes and activities that include Personnel Action Processing, Benefits Administration and Compensation Management. “This task extends our overall GSA EA and its current segment focus to another key area in GSA. We have developed segment architectures for both Acquisition Contract Writing, a key GSA functional area and GSA Finance. This add a new dimention to our comprehensive capabilities” said Cory Casanave, President and CEO of Model Driven Solutions and DAT.  “This fifth tasking award under the BPA is a very strong vote of confidence in the work already accomplished by the Model Driven Solutions Team at GSA and bodes extremely well for its future”, continued Mr. Casanave.
Model Driven Solutions has put together a powerful team of highly experienced organizations to respond to GSA needs. For this specific project, the team consists of Booz|Allen|Hamilton and Omnisolve. Each of the partners, combined with Model Driven Solutions' methodology, tooling and expertise, provide GSA a complete Enterprise Architecture solution across all of GSA's lines-of-business and service offices.
