G2X TAKE: SDVOSB Insignia Technology Services, a 9th Way Solutions Company, recently beat out one other bidder to be awarded a 3-year task to provide technical sustainment and transition support for EVSS. Enterprise Veterans Self-Service is an application that supports the long-term vision of the 21st Century VA to enable convenient, seamless interactions between VA, Veterans, Service Members, spouses, dependents, and the community of VA business partners and stakeholders providing services for the Veteran. The task was competed and awarded using T4NG as an SDVOSB set-aside action.
- In a significant move, late last year T4NG Prime Insignia was quietly acquired by 9th Way Solutions, an emerging Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) founded by Steve and Debbie Ikirt, the well-known founders and former owners of Information Innovators Inc. (Triple-i). Remember, Triple-i, before its acquisition in 2017, was one of the largest, most successful SDVOSBs in the nation, so there is a track record of winning big here.
- Insignia is a known incumbent on this effort having been awarded a 3-year Enterprise Veterans Self Service Technical Sustainment Support (EVSS) Task Order under the T4NG IDIQ in support of the Office of Information & Technology’s Veteran Centered Experience in 2017.
- Led by CEO Steve Ikirt, and President Melissa Chapman, 9th Way was recently named to the updated list of NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come.
- Late last year 9th Way named established industry veteran Nancy Van Balen as VP of Growth, and just a few short months ago they added recent VA OIT Chief of Staff for Product Development Mickie Krause to the team.
