Two young businesspeople in a meetingShared Services Delivery Model

  1. Having the expertise in designing, standing up and implementing the only shared services delivery model of its kind in the Government, APS provides expert consultation on development of innovative business processes and leveraging of technology to deliver a transformational acquisition experience. When developed and implemented, the acquisition shared services delivery model delivers unprecedented acquisition efficiency, extremely short acquisition lead times, reduction in direct acquisition costs and substantially low operating costs. Organizational design, staffing, training, business process development, technology infusion, selection of acquisition items subject to a high-volume transactional delivery model and development of the “contract infrastructure” necessary to derive the benefits realized by shared services are core competencies of APS.


Strategic Sourcing

  1. Many agencies merely scratch the surface of the benefits that can be achieved through strategic sourcing. Using a data driven approach for identifying strategic sourcing opportunities specific to an agency buying profile provides negotiating leverage to achieve substantial cost savings, especially at higher aggregated volumes over the life of the contract. Where strategic sourcing programs all set out to achieve this goal, few actually achieve the full potential due to insufficient capture of the total requirement and incorporation of specialized terms to drive long-term savings. APS takes the strategic sourcing concept to the next level with optimized acquisition strategies and portfolio development to create an acquisition “infrastructure” specifically for the purpose it was imagined. This coupled with uniquely designed ordering processes for the established infrastructure provide a “system-of-systems” like approach that results in unprecedented short acquisition lead times.


Robotics Process Automation (RPA)

  1. APS has the expertise to develop certain contracts that allow near full robotics processing of orders. In order to meet Federal contracting requirements and inherent governmental decisions, acquisition full automation cannot be achieved. However, with the proper design of a contract infrastructure, high-volume requirements can be performed using RPA functions that achieve 94% of the order process while remaining regulatory compliant. RPA allows for the 24/7 processing of assigned requirements, substantially reducing acquisition lead times and acquisition costs. Additionally, RPA uses a repeatable process making awards virtually error free, increasing compliance, standardization and reducing rework and post-award administrative costs.
