The Federal Emergency Management Agency will adopt anÂ acquisition management system designed byÂ CompusearchÂ to act as FEMA’s officialÂ contract writing system.
FEMA will use the PRISMÂ system to interface with the agency’s financial management system and more than 300 contractingÂ professionals and other acquisition workers at the agency will have access to the tool, Compusearch said Friday.
The Department of Homeland SecurityÂ , where FEMA resides, has implementedÂ PRISM as its shared services acquisition and grants lifecycle management system with more than 1,400 DHS procurement professionals connected to the system.
Compusearch CEOÂ Reid JacksonÂ said his company aims toÂ help FEMA â€œprepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate the hazards that are the core of its mission,â€ through the acquisition management service.
PRISM is designed to incorporate lifecycle acquisition functional support and architectural support functions for site hierarchy, segregation and scale.
