The eFAST acquisition vehicle is the FAA’s preferred way of fulfilling agency small business goals. As such, it provides a fast and effective means for securing a broad range of comprehensive professional, technical and support services and solutions.

QAI’s period of performance under agreement #DTFAWA11A-00195 is July 5, 2011 through September 30, 2016. Under its terms, QAI is eligible to participate immediately in the procurement process for four of eight available functional areas: Computer Systems Support (CSS), Computer/Information Systems Development (CSD), Business Administration & Management (BAM), and Documentation & Training (D&T).

Scott Swidersky, Executive Director and Partner, Quality Associates Inc., says, “QAI is excited by the prospect of being able to apply our expertise in support of FAA’s mission in the year 2011 and beyond. Our ability to provide a full range of document scanning/imaging products and services, including hardware, software, integration services and training, will go a long way in assisting the agency in meeting its objectives.”

Swidersky continued, “While QAI has done work for FAA in past, being an eFAST MOA holder confers mutual advantages.
