ATLANTA, Ga. – Sept. 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Cognitive Technologies, known for over 20 years of successful people-focused project and program management services, has been awarded an IT professional services contract with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). Now any U.S. government agency can purchase Cognitive services using the GSA Schedule, thus assuring them the most favorably priced custom solutions for PMO setup and implementation, project management, project audits, project recovery, and performance improvement. Additionally, agencies can purchase solutions online using the GSA Advantage! website (http://www.gsaadvantage.gov).

Before receiving a GSA Schedule contract, companies are rigorously evaluated for their breadth of experience, customer satisfaction, performance level and overall service outcomes. The rigor of this process reinforces Cognitive’s credibility in the industry and confirms what our customers already know.

“Our solutions work,” comments Dr. Karen McGraw, president of Cognitive Technologies, “because we focus on helping organizations meld specific technical, business and human performance goals into a single set of manageable outcomes.” Dr. McGraw continues, “We are confident in our ability to make dramatic improvements in the way our clients manage their projects and programs.”

Dave Mathisen, SVP and General Manager of Cognitive Technologies, adds, “Our contract with the GSA is part of a concerted effort to make it as easy as possible for our existing government customers, as well as new ones, to ensure the success of critical projects – from start-up through development and the ‘make or break’ stage of full integration into agency operations.”
