Sandia awards three staff augmentation contracts


Contracts valued at $706 million over five years
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Three new companies have each been awarded new contracts to provide Sandia National Laboratories’ total of approximately 1,200 staff augmentation workers.

Staff augmentation personnel are contract professional, support, and information technology (IT) workers brought in by Sandia for varying periods of time to supplement efforts of the internal staff in order to contain costs and handle overflow work. Sandia uses both full-time and part-time staff augmentation workers.

The newly selected staff augmentation suppliers:

Sandia Staffing Alliance, LLC, made up of WESTECH and Gram, Inc., both of which have extensive federal and lab level contract experience, will become the new employer for the approximately 500 professional services staff augmentation workers at the Labs;
LMATA Government Services, LLC, made up of L&M Technologies and ATA Services, Inc, both current staff augmentation suppliers, will be the new employer for the approximately 500 support services staff augmentation workers at the Labs;
Global Analytic IT Services (GAITS), a leading edge IT supplier focused exclusively on the federal contracting arena, will be the new employer for about 200 IT services staff augmentation workers at the Labs.
These new five-year contracts – collectively worth an estimated $706 million over their terms – are not expected to result in a reduction of the total number of staff augmentation workers, who can be found at the Labs’ sites in Albuquerque, Carlsbad, and Livermore, Calif.

The three new contracts to the new companies will replace 17 contracts held since 1996 by 10 companies.

In most respects these changes should be nearly seamless for staff augmentation workers assigned to many Sandia organizations and to colleagues who are employees of the Labs and its customers, says Fred Romo, the senior contracting representative who has led the multi-year effort to identify the most cost-effective manner for the Labs’ to fill its staff augmentation needs.

“This change is just one of several Sandia is undertaking during this summer that affect its policies and business practices,” says Romo. “For instance, this consolidation of contracts is being made for efficiency reasons. Just one example of that, is that cost of administration will be significantly reduced.”
