GSA BIM Central Facility Repository Program makes it to ACT-IAC Igniting Innovation Top 8

The General Services Administration’s (GSA) Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the Central Facilities Repository (CFR), in which Vencore plays a key role supporting, was selected as one of the Top 8 Innovations for the American Council for Technology and Industry Council’s (ACT-IAC) Igniting Innovation Award.

ACT-IAC is the premier public-private partnership in the government IT community. Recently the organization held its second annual Igniting Innovation 2015 Showcase and Awards event. The Igniting Innovation program is designed to recognize innovations throughout government, with a focus on technology. 

The goal of the CFR initiative is to centralize all current building information, including BIM information so that building data can interoperate with other business applications and be leveraged across the enterprise. The CFR will not just store BIM data, but will function as an active system that will be continually updated with usable information. A proof of concept has been successfully launched for 11 buildings in two federal districts, in two regions. The data will be leveraged for various facilities projects including operations and maintenance, renovation and additions.

Vencore has been a long-time partner to GSA, having supported the development of CFR and BIM for more than 10 years. As the current CFR contractor, Vencore takes a proactive and innovative approach to CFR implementation, and is able to do more in less time due to the company’s in-depth understanding of GSA’s work processes. Together, Vencore and GSA will continue to drive towards GSA-wide adoption, operation and process efficiency using the BIM server.

Jerry Calhoun, SVP, Human Capital Discusses Big Changes at Vencore and Building the Workforce of the Future

For Jerry Calhoun and his colleagues at Vencore, 2014 was a tremendous year. Following three acquisitions since 2010 and the hiring of a new CEO in 2013, last year saw the Chantilly, Va.-based contractor acquire QinetiQ North America Services and Solutions Group and change its name from The SI Organization, Inc. to Vencore, Inc. to continue its forward march of change and industry success.

Recently, Vencore Senior Vice President for Human Capital Jerry Calhoun gave WashingtonExec the inside scoop on the busy year behind them and the exciting one yet to come.

According to Calhoun, the biggest challenge during this time of organizational change was keeping the best people and processes as they blended together the two companies of SI Organization and QinetiQ. “It wasn’t simply a case where SI bought QinetiQ and integrated it into SI — we literally created a new company called Vencore,” said Calhoun. “It’s more than a new name. Our marketplace has changed dramatically, and our customers have changed dramatically, so it was a very strategic move.”
