It is further evidence of GSA's strong acceptance of the Model Driven Solutions EA methodology and approach.", said Ed Seidewitz, Vice President, Model Driven Architecture Services for Model Driven Solutions.
“This task takes the FMEA segment of the One GSA EA and extends it to provide a complete, agile solution” said Cory Casanave, President and CEO of Model Driven Solutions and DAT. “This third tasking award under the BPA that is only a year old is a strong vote of confidence in the work already accomplished by the Model Driven Solutions Team at GSA and bodes extremely well for its future”, continued Mr. Casanave.
