GP Strategies Awarded Blanket Purchase Agreement By The US Department Of Health And Human Services

ELKRIDGE, Md., July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX) announced today that it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) by the US 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 $3M 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. 

Billy Biggs, GP Strategies' Public Sector Director, said, "The recent award of the HHS Blanket Purchase Agreement reinforces GP Strategies' reputation as an organization that values long-term customer relationships. We were fortunate to win the original HHS Learning Management System implementation contract in 2007 after a very competitive evaluation process. After five years of supporting their LMS, we are excited to have the opportunity to extend our relationship with the HHSU team and look forward to supporting their current and future learning technology needs."
