The Library of Congress Office of Contract Management awarded a West Virginia data center, DC Corp with the award of a five-year Information Technology (IT) Consulting Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) Contract Vehicle alongside HMS Technologies, Inc (HMS) and Grant Thornton, LLP  — one of the six global firms which provide a full-range of management consulting services. The IDIQ contracts will be issued on a task order basis and will involve an agency-wide range of IT business issues such as: strategic planning, governance, management, operations, security, internal controls, hosting environments, applications, enterprise architecture, system conversions, information assurance, system life cycle development, web development, digitization, business solutions, continuity of operations, cloud computing, virtualization, and best practices.

DC Corp has an average of 25+ years of experience, including Senior Executive Service in the Government. “DC Corp is excited for this contract and will be able to utilize our expert executive data center management skills to help serve the Library of Congress,” said Charles Asbury, CEO of DC Corp.

DC Corp’s partnership with HMS Technologies, Inc., a leading IT prime contractor who possesses the know-how for integrating technology, partners, and clients for the common goal of teamed successes in both the Federal Sector and Commercial environments with proven results, and with Grant Thornton, LLP, one of the six global firms which provide a full-range of management consulting services gave them an edge.

HMS was well positioned for this win because of the relationship to its Imaging Technologies Division and the complete end-to-end imaging and document management solutions they provide. Over the past 30 year, the Imaging business unit of HMS has performed document imaging, document conversion, and records management. These solutions include converting paper documents (including rare books and historical documents), microfilm/microfiche, large format documents (blueprints, schematics), bound material, slides, photos, computer files, and various other media to nearly any format desired.

“HMS is proud to be one of the two awardees serving the Library of Congress,” said HMS CEO Bill Kirkpatrick, “Our extensive background with IT Consulting and Digitization will offer them solid solutions and guidance as they audit and evaluate their IT activities and systems in the years to come.”
