The NASPO ValuePoint Cloud Solutions cooperative contract was designed to increase efficiency, accountability, and workforce management processes. Together with the lead state, Utah, NASPO ValuePoint extended a solicitation to top government contractors for a variety of cloud services. Key goals of the contract include: increasing overall efficiency, improved governance and accountability, improved information access for field and mobile-based workers, and more. At the time of procurement, 35 states and six authorized territories came together in an effort to cooperatively procure cloud-based services. The NASPO ValuePoint Cloud Solutions master agreement awarded to Knowledge Services can be used by state governments, institutions of higher education, political subdivisions, and other eligible entities upon approval of the individual state procurement director and compliance with legal provisions.
Knowledge Services was awarded the NASPO ValuePoint Cloud Solutions contract based on our ability to provide on-demand self-service through our software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, web-based vendor management system (VMS) that can be utilized through multiple platforms, and configurable cloud-based service model, which is tailored specifically to meet the needs of various states and cooperatives. Furthermore, participating states and cooperatives realize transparency through the use of our private, cloud-based service model by leveraging the tracking and reporting capabilities within the VMS. Knowledge Services’ alignment with NIST standards and requirements also contributed to the selection of our service offerings. Having been awarded this contract, cooperatives can benefit from Knowledge Services’ management of vendor-based contingent and temporary labor, fixed-bid and milestone statement of work (SOW), and field-based mobile and in-home service provider management..
