Intergraph Partners with Alvarez and Associates Under NASA’s Government-Wide Acquisition Contract

Partnership opens new doors for world leader in geospatial solutions.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., July 23, 2012

A powerful new partnership between Intergraph Government Solutions and Alvarez and Associates emerged within the federal geospatial landscape today.

Alvarez and Associates, a Washington, D.C.-based Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVO/SB) information technology company and Intergraph Government Solutions , the leading provider of engineering and geospatial software, announced a partnership to provide products and services under the NASA SEWP IV contract.

The SEWP contract, or Solution for Enterprise Wide Procurement, currently in its fourth iteration, is a government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) whose purpose is to provide fresh technology to its clients in an efficient, streamlined and cost-saving manner.

As part of the agreement, more than 900 individual geospatial applications and solutions are now available to U.S. government agencies via the contract, including all federal agencies, the military services and certain authorized government contractors.

Along with these standard products and services, the contract allows new products to be added daily based on specific user requirements. This creates a dynamic geospatial catalog where product availability is based on requests, not requests based on availability.

This partnership enables the software providers to increase the number of available products and respond to customer inquiries in just one business day. This makes the contract – and the new partnership of Alvarez and Associates/Intergraph – unique in the government geospatial industry.
