Posted by Eric Haun

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has awarded a follow-on $9 million
Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to ABSG Consulting Inc., an ABS
Group company (ABS Group).

ABS Group will provide a range of Human Systems Integration (HSI)
support to the USCG's Human Systems Integration Office (CG-1B3),
which is the USCG's technical authority for human systems
integration (HSI). The BPA will cover acquisition support,
project identification, usability analyses, testing, user
facilitation and documentation services.

As the USCG embarks on several new acquisition programs,
including the Offshore Patrol Cutter and the Polar Ice Breaker,
ABS Group will assist CG-1B3 and its partners within the USCG
Acquisitions Directorate (CG-9), program sponsors, technical
authorities and other stakeholders so that systems are optimized
with the operators and maintainers in mind to promote safety and
confirm mission success.

"ABS Group's Global Government team has provided enterprise risk
management services to public entities worldwide for over 20
years and will work together with the USCG to continue our
support in the vitally important area of human systems
integration. We are pleased to leverage our HSI knowledge and
maritime experience to continue our support of CG-1B3 through
this follow-on BPA," said Joseph Myers, Senior Director,
Government Programs for ABS Group.

Myers indicated that the ABS Group team includes several small
and disadvantaged businesses with "specialty expertise that will
prove highly valuable to the USCG." The team will focus on the
multiple domains associated with HSI including human factors
engineering (HFE), manpower, personnel, performance support and
training , system safety (including occupational health),
habitability and personnel survivability for systems under
development.

The BPA consists of one base year with four one-year options.
