Washington, D.C., June 18, 2014
The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), the only organization that defines, teaches and promotes best practices in design-build project delivery, has announced the award of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) contract # GS-02F-105BA on Schedule 84 for the seamless delivery of design-build training services to the U.S. government.
DBIA’s schedule award allows federal agencies, along with some state and local entities, to conveniently purchase DBIA’s Design-Build Done Right education and training services. GSA Federal Supply Schedules are open-ended, five-year contracts with negotiated products and services. DBIA completed a comprehensive review process in order to receive a GSA contract listing as a pre-approved GSA supplier.
DBIA is a long-established leader in providing quality training for the federal government. This important new authorization now allows DBIA to offer its training and experience even more widely through the Federal Supply Schedule for the benefit of the federal government. Prices have already been deemed fair and reasonable and contracts are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, reducing evaluation cycles. Purchases can be made directly from a contractor’s GSA Schedule Contract, eliminating time-consuming responses to complex RFPs and lengthy negotiations. The GSA has negotiated the prices, services and terms covering DBIA’s training and professional development services under the program. This provides the best quality at the most economical price and makes doing business with DBIA an efficient and hassle-free experience.
DBIA’s established excellence in training means we can immediately begin offering courses through the GSA Federal Supply Schedule that are focused, professional and the recognized industry standard. They are:
- BIM Planning for Design-Build
- Certification Exam Preparation
