Compusearch has been awarded a contract by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Enterprise Services Center (ESC), to provide PRISM software licenses and associated implementation services in support of FAA-ESC’s deployment of an integrated procurement solution to their new client, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

FAA-ESC is a Shared Services Provider and as such does not receive directly appropriated government funds. Instead FAA-ESC’s funding comes from their customers, within the U.S. Department of Transportation and elsewhere in Federal Government, in exchange for the government-to-government services they provide.

FAA-ESC’s service lines of business include Procurement Management and Financial Management. The Interagency Agreement (IAA) NRC awarded FAA-ESC is for the deployment of an NRC Acquisition System, to include hosting, and also integration with NRC’s FAIMIS Core Financial System, an implementation of CGI’s Momentum Enterprise Resource Planning suite. The period of performance is for a base term of 8 years and the total value of the IAA is $32,111,402.

When operational in 2013, the NRC Acquisition System will support the Commission’s contracting and grants administration functions across the lifecycle, from pre-award planning in the program offices, through award, post-award management and administration, and finally close-out.
