G2X TAKE: Only days after announcing they have recruited the recent GSA 18F COO to serve as new VP of Operations, this 8(a) STARS II and CMS SPARC Prime small business just beat out 13 other bidders to secure this 4-year task to support the CMS Medicaid and CHIP Program (MACPro) System.
For the team at CollabraLink, the opportunity to take on this high profile initiative that supports increased collaboration between CMS and the states is very much aligned with their mission to provide their customers with “simple and intuitive solutions that increase efficiency and enhance citizen engagement.”
While this is the first Prime task award we see for the CollabraLink team at CMS, a quick glance at their portfolio of customers, that cuts across the broader Civilian sector and DoD, proves that the growth team, led by CEO, Rahul Pandhi and Phil Crowe, current Vice President for Business Development and former 2020 Company Growth Executive, clearly understand how to position and win in new environments.
In addition to the big award, the team at CollabraLink made equally big news last week as it was announced that they have recruited Josh Bailes, the recent Chief Operating Officer for 18F, the well-known tech startup within Government aimed at improving and modernizing Government technology. Given the insight and experience he can bring, having provided leadership and strategy to the business development/account management team at I8F and leading the team who operates cloud.gov and Federalist, a platform-as-a-service and software-as-a-service operated by the Government, this hire only further positions this firms as a player for Agile Digital Services and Strategy efforts.Tags: CMS CollabraLink
