|HHS was implementing a multi year plan to consolidate several in use, Operating Division-unique business systems into a single, fully integrated, consolidated application serving the entire Department. This included consolidation of HHS asset systems into an COTS asset management system, the Property Management Information System (PMIS), in order to: 1. Eliminate redundant and outdated asset systems; 2. Produce accurate, timely, reliable, and enterprise asset information for decision-making; 3. Streamline operational activities to achieve more efficient and cost-effective business performance; and 4. To achieve unqualified audit opinions on annual financial statements.|
|HHS engaged Pivotal to provide comprehensive support of PMIS, including program management, acquisition management, and CPIC execution. Pivotal was retained in the initial phase of this project to develop the business case for capital planning and investment control purposes (OMB 300 and 53) and to outline the basis for proceeding with the development. We subsequently maintained the project plan, funds, and task orders in coordination with the Government, as well as provided technical oversight of three (3) contractors and a budget over $12 million. We also facilitated communications for PMIS, including funding requests and the PMIS change control board, as well as developed/revise policies to reflect the new system.|
“I am very grateful for the support you provided to NOSSA. I appreciate the valuable input and insight you provided. A big thank you from all

As Washington’s budget becomes tighter through forced measures, such as the Sequester, Government agencies must do more with less. Share in Savings (SIS) contracts are one approach that could offer the Government an innovative way to achieve results while reducing overall expenditures.
For well over a decade, exorbitant Government spending (currently over $80B taxpayer dollars per year) towards operating and maintaining Information Technology (IT) solutions that are end of life and technically outdated has been a topic of concern to legislators. Challenges and solutions in this arena are well known, yet advancements are rarely made.
