The Washington Headquarter Services (WHS) has awarded Ian, Evan & Alexander Corporation (IEA) the Technical Engineering Analytical Management Support (TEAMS) blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to support the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense.

The largest category of services purchased for SECO customers is knowledge based services, which account for $973 million of the total funds obligated by the SECO. The TEAMS BPA provides an easy-to-use platform for all WHS/AD Contracting Officer’s to procure knowledge based services that may be used across the Office of the Secretary of Defense. These services include, but are not limited to, program management, management consulting, engineering, scientific, environmental, financial management, and ancillary services—such as executive administrative support—in CONUS and OCONUS locations.
