For the first time, the General Services Administration’s building maintenance and operations (BMO) has been awarded a best-in-class designation under new Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance. The OMB is the largest office within the Executive Office of the President of the United States.
According to a Regional Commissioner, Mary Ruwwe, BMO is the first governmentwide strategic sourcing instrument awarded the honor. Accessible to all federal agencies wanting an all-inclusive facilities maintenance or single-service work; the designation is important to expanding the appeal and usage of the contract.
Meeting the management performance criteria of the OMB, the BMO received the best-in-class recognition for its approach to the development of high-value acquisitions tools to identify spending; methods to leverage best practices for requirements and review procedures; and provide data-driven pricing and performance strategies.
The multiple-award contract focuses on lowering costs and reducing duplicate contracts, along with standardizing categories for easier proposal comparisons. The initiative engages stakeholders for direct participation on requests for information and is planned for a zonal roll out but the end of the next fiscal year.
