NIB’s Contract Management Training was a Win-Win Solution That Resolved the Federal Agency’s Issue and Provided Career Opportunities for the Blind
Delivered on Expectations and Created New Opportunities
NIB was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract for CMS closeout support services with the Department of Defense (DoD). While NIB candidates for employment with the CMS program have college or advanced degrees, none had the specialized knowledge in contract management that support services require. NIB had to move quickly to prepare their CMS employee candidates for the complexities of federal contracting processes and regulations.
This case study discusses:
- The challenge to successfully deliver the contract closeout services around the country
- The need for an intensive, hands-on classroom training in the area of contract management
- Customized learning program that offered needed knowledge, hands-on practice, and career paths
- Benefits of the training on the contract execution and beyond it
