Recently, SecurAmerica was awarded the General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule 84 contract for security and law enforcement solutions (Contract # GS-07F-0123Y). This award provides the opportunity for SecurAmerica to provide a wide range of security services to federal, state and local government buyers.
"This is a huge strategic opportunity for us", says John K. Adams, SecurAmerica's President and Chief Operating Officer. "We now have the ability to provide a wide range of services to our government partners and integrate into the government sector the legendary and responsive customer service that our commercial clients have enjoyed since our founding. Our leadership team has extensive prior experience in contracting with the Federal Government with direct expertise and a proven track record in providing a wide range of complex security solutions for some of the most prestigious and technically complex projects around the world. This is an exciting time for our company."
The GSA Schedule 84 is a contract vehicle that streamlines the sale of security solutions to government buyers. As with all GSA Schedule items, the General Services Administration has negotiated discounted rates on these security related products and services, and have determined SecurAmerica's pricing to be "fair and reasonable". The GSA Schedule 84, unlike most GSA Schedules, offers the added benefit of being open to state and local government, in addition to federal agencies.
"In fiscal year 2010 government buyers spent over $2.7 billion through GSA Schedule 84 Contracts – that's an average of over $1.7 million per GSA Schedule 84 Contractor", Adams notes. "Taking advantage of these contract opportunities will be a significant driver of us growing to be one of the largest and most respected contract security companies in the industry."
SecurAmerica provides a wide range of security services for governmental clients including uniformed security officers, access control, patrol services, asset protection programs, vulnerability assessments, guest relations, concierge services, fire and life safety programs, employee training and special event coverage.
Our proposed service solution to our GSA clients is different than those offered by our competitors. We founded the company because we saw the need in the industry to offer governmental and corporate customers a real choice in the way contract security services were provided and not just be the lowest bidder. We wanted to present a viable option for customers over what they were getting from the stereotypical "guard" company. An option based on service excellence. An option where customers could receive superior service along with a wide range of value-add services. An option that gives customers peace of mind in knowing that their security staffs at their sites are well-screened, well-trained and treated with dignity and respect. We look forward to providing these options to our valued governmental clients at the federal, state and local levels.
