Backstage Library Works has long worked with public, academic, and special libraries as well as museums, archives, and corporate bodies all over the world to provide high quality technical services. With years of experience working with government agencies as well, Backstage is very pleased to announce the award of their General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract which will provide support for Digitization and On-Site services under Special Item Numbers:
- 518210DC – Document Conversion Services
- 493110RM – Physical Records Management Services
- OLM – Order-Level Materials
The GSA schedule system provides assurances to government procurement offices that a given company has been strictly evaluated to ensure that it is a capable, trustworthy, and well-performing institution. As a Federal contractor who has performed FADGI 3-Star and 4-Star compliant imaging services for our nation’s leading cultural institutions for many years, this approval was a natural next step, especially as news of the National Archives and Records Administration’s M-19-21 initiative became public.
“Signing an agreement with the General Services Administration creates opportunities for our clients to make it easier to work with us in the future,” observes Nate Cothran, president of Backstage Library Works. “In addition to our digitization services, Backstage has also worked to develop options along on-site service lines within the GSA schedule. This synergy pulls together multiple disciplines within our organization to better serve our clients and meet their varied needs.” It’s Backstage’s belief that this diversification will prove very helpful in providing a holistic one-stop-shop solution to upcoming records management needs.
The critical function of the GSA Schedules is to streamline the process with contracting and ensure that any services provided by the vendor will be compliant with the new requirements for permanent records. Backstage will be able to assist organizations in accelerating their compliance with a simplified quote and project planning process.
