Attain Wins $240 Million Army AESIP Contract.

Professional Services Company Selected To Support The Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program

VIENNA, Va. -- Attain, LLC, a leading public sector professional services company, today announced that it has won its largest prime contract to date to support the Army's Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP). The AESIP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Enterprise Application Services (EAS) contract is an IDIQ, task order award with a ceiling value of up to $240 million.

The goal of AESIP is to create a single, integrated ERP system across the Department of the Army that brings together four of its ERP initiatives. The program aims to streamline components of the Army Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems' (PEO EIS) $8 billion ERP landscape. It also aims to enable delivery of consistent business solutions across the Army through integrated data and applications services. With convergence, integration and knowledge transfer that enables more Government control of Army business solutions, the intended benefits of the AESIP program include maximized efficiency, increased system capabilities and functionality, and significantly reduced costs.

"We are pleased with the opportunity to once again support the U.S. Department of the Army and provide assistance with enhancing its services to its constituents," said Greg Baroni, chairman and CEO of Attain. "Not only is AESIP Attain's largest prime contract since inception in 2009, but it's also a very strategic win that puts Attain at the center of the Army's ERP convergence and integration efforts and at the heart of its business transformation and change management initiatives."

As a prime contractor, Attain will work with Army personnel to provide business process automation; applications development; organizational transition; applications testing; operations, maintenance and sustainment, and knowledge transfer services. Under this contract Attain will also provide support to the Army's ERP Center of Expertise (COE) at Picatinny Arsenal, NJ, with the goal of enhancing the Department's internal ERP capabilities. The five-year contract, effective April 15, 2011, includes a one-year base period and four one-year options.

"Attain's selection as a prime contractor on the AESIP program is a testament to our technical expertise, not only in SAP applications development, data management and migration, and integration of complex end-to-end business processes, but also managing large-scale change management efforts," said Richard Roberts, president of Attain Federal Services.

"With a legacy of ERP expertise that includes years of work on the Army Logistics Modernization Program (LMP)--one of the Army's existing ERP systems--Attain's professionals have a tremendous depth of customer knowledge and proven, first-hand experience delivering hundreds of acquisition, finance and logistics best practices in support of more than 20,000 Army users," Roberts said.

Attain has assembled a skilled and accomplished team, including several small or small disadvantaged businesses, to address AESIP's task orders. Attain's subcontractors are Northrop Grumman, Optimal Solutions, Softek International, Data Blueprint, Sapiex, The Ahrens Consulting Group, Greshko Consulting, Accelerated Information Management, RWD, Teradata, and Worksoft. In addition to Attain, two other prime contractors also were selected under this multiple award contract.
