In fact, since December 15, 2015 the IMC Learning Suite, IMC’s learning management system, has been included in the list of official product and service providers administered by the General Services Administration (GSA).
The GSA is an independent United States federal government agency. Its tasks are two-fold, firstly assuming administrative tasks, and secondly, ensuring a broad range of products and services are available for the benefit of other U.S. government bodies. Additionally, GSA continuously develops strategies to maintain and improve cost efficiencies. In order to achieve maximum cost transparency, the GSA compiles detailed trader directories that list respective providers’ product and service portfolios, including pricing. By law, U.S. government agencies are forced to exclusively obtain a large share of products and services from companies that are included in the GSA provider directory.
IMC being added to GSA directory, now provides public sector customers in the U.S. with a binding guarantee that IMC Learning Suite and incorporated services will be available to them at the best possible price for a fixed term.
“The contract with GSA provides fast access to products and services for clients in administration. The GSA product listing significantly reduces the acquisition period and increases efficiency in procurement for federal agencies and other potential customers of the products and services in question.” explains Ken Gellerman, Vice President and Government Contract Administrator at Enterprise Training Solutions, a U.S. e-learning provider. “Pricing for products and services has been agreed in advance so that customers can be sure the agreed prices are fair and justified.” adds Christian Wachter, spokesman of the board at IMC.
As IMC’s partner, Enterprise Training Solutions distributes the IMC Learning Suite to public sector customers in the U.S. market. At IMC, we are proud of having achieved the GSA listing, which marks an essential milestone in providing our services to the U.S. public sector and administration.
