Homeland Security Industries Association Deploys G-Force™ by MAP ROI for Government Contracting Members

HSIA Members Receive Dynamic Resource Directory for Contracting Partners and Homeland Security Compliance Proposals

STERLING, VA - October 7th, 2004 - The Homeland Security Industries Association (HSIA) today announced the availability of MAP ROI’s G-Force solution to its membership. G-Force is the first integrated, collaborative online system for contract identification, qualification, managing, proposal development and winning government business. With G-Force, HSIA members will now have access to a database containing current and long-term Federal contracting opportunities as well as up to the minute information on available contracting partnerships.

In addition, all HSIA members will be eligible to receive a discount on MAP ROI's flagship subscription services: G-Force Complete, G-Force InformTM, G-Force ProposeTM.

“The G-Force solution has a comprehensive and robust ability to assemble the various federal opportunities of interest to organizations supporting U.S. homeland security efforts, as well as to compile other vendors based upon the type of product or service a company sells, and distribute this information everyday to our membership,” said Bruce Aitken, president of HSIA. “Once they identify an opportunity, members may then choose to utilize the G-Force service to navigate from the proposal creation process through contract bidding and beyond. The G-Force service nicely complements the daily research and reporting on Federal and state RFPs, RFIs, RFQs and grants which HSIA does for its corporate members. G-Force affords our members the ability to go efficiently to the next step in winning contracts and/or grants.”

“Homeland security is a critical issue facing our country today, and organizations like HSIA are extremely relevant to government contractors addressing this issue,” said Christopher K. Stahl, MAP ROI, Inc. founder and CEO. “We are pleased that they have joined the dozens of organizations who have turned to our powerful toolset as the core of their offering to help clients and members succeed in the Federal government marketplace.”
