Local Companies Will Share In Multibillion-Dollar Fed Pact
San Antonio-based Metrica Team Venture has snagged part of a multibillion-dollar information technology federal contract.
Metrica Team Venture is one of the 62 vendors across the United States that will share in the $15 billion, 10-year contract. The pact is designed to provide worldwide information technology solutions to federal agencies while strengthening opportunities in federal contracting for small businesses.
Jonathan Fast, director of the San Antonio IT group for Metrica Inc., says his company decided to form the joint venture to go after the contract.
By forming the alliance, he says, the team was able to qualify for all aspects of the contract.
"We were looking to put together a team that could get past all the hurdles," Fast says. "That was our goal."
Metrica Team Venture is a joint venture between Metrica Inc. and five other tech companies. They are Decypher Technologies Ltd., SecureInfo, Netgineer Data Systems Inc., Texas Mgt Associates -- all based in San Antonio -- and Fairfax, Va.-based InfoReliance.
Metrica Team officials say they do not know yet how big their stake will be in the contract pie.
The contract, called the Alliant Small Business Government-wide Acquisition Contract, is administered through the General Services Administration (GSA).
The GSA is an independent agency of the U.S. government that help manage and support federal agencies.
The GSA supplies products and communications for U.S. government offices, provides transportation and office space to federal employees, and develops government-wide cost-minimizing policies, among other management tasks.
Metrica was founded in 1986 and specializes in providing government and private industry customers products and services in the areas of information technology, logistics, personnel and training, and automation and robotics.
Fast says each company in the venture brings a specific capability needed for the contract, including management, manufacturing and purchasing.
"We thought it would be a great idea to have a San Antonio-based company go after this contract because it would be easy to come together," Fast says. "I tried to get as much capability on the team from San Antonio as I could."
He adds although InfoReliance is not in San Antonio, the company is brought to the table crucial past experience needed to win and execute the contract.
Fast says the venture will also give the companies a great opportunity to grow and expand their customer base.
San Antonio-based RX Joint Venture LLC, a venture between Rothe Development Inc. and X-Technologies Inc., also won part of the $15 billion contract.
