Munro & Associates Inc., Troy-based specialists in cost analysis and cost reduction, announced the award of its GSA Schedule for Professional Engineering Services from the General Services Administration.
The schedule, contract number GS-10F-0276X, allows Munro & Associates to provide products and services to government agencies as an approved, preferred vendor, and expedites the process of obtaining government contracts.
“Being awarded this GSA contract is an important development in Munro & Associates’ history, and marks our expansion into a new and significant market for us,” said Joe Feord, Munro & Associates’ vice president of business development. “We look forward to providing government agencies with the cost-effective solutions that have made us so valued by our many commercial clients.”
Munro provides detailed cost analyses to provide clear direction upstream to make informed decisions that result in on-cost, on-time, capable, reliable products. With a sole focus for 23 years on exposing and quantifying drivers of cost, Munro provides robust methods for efficiently and accurately representing all the steps, parts, tools, operations, personnel, and, more importantly, the potentials for failure and rework. This forecasts the should-cost and will-cost for any product, service or operation, and pinpoints the root drivers so that remedies can be implemented to avoid future pain.
“It has been a benefit to be only focused in this area,” said Feord. “We have learned a tremendous amount about what works and what doesn’t. Now we are pleased to be positioned to help the DOD get in front of the future costs so we can make them better.”
