Columbus, OH – Navigator Management Partners (‘Navigator’) —a leading management and technology consulting firm—is one of only 20 vendors awarded a master services contract for IT Professional Consulting Services Agreements by Maryland Education Enterprise Consortium (‘MEEC’, meec-edu.org
This agreement, a nine (9) year, $90 million master contract, allows more than 200 MEEC members (K-12 schools, universities and colleges and museums and libraries) to contract with those vendors such as Navigator for services in six (6) categories related to enterprise technology, cloud adoption, training and analytics. Navigator was awarded as a MEEC vendor in all six of the categories.
“We are pleased to be selected and included in this master services agreement,” said Richard Walega, Senior Vice President and Executive overseeing Navigator services delivery for the Baltimore-Washington and Mid-Atlantic region. “Already we are supporting a number of educational institutions in Maryland and this allows others to easily access our services.”
Walega noted a number of key strategic partnerships the firm has with leading cloud technology providers (such as Workday, Oracle and SAP), allowing Navigator consultants to provide expertise in vendor offerings, providing visibility into product capabilities, product gaps, and roadmaps. “We draw on this collective experience to deliver unbiased and objective consulting advice.”
Navigator maintains formal strategic partnerships with several solution providers and our consultants also have experience with a wide range of industry solutions, including PeopleSoft, Oracle, SAP, Workday, Kuali, Lawson, Microsoft Dynamics, SuccessFactors, Cornerstone and Salesforce. Utilizing these relationships and collective experience allows us to assess and recommend the most appropriate solution to MEEC for a sustainable future.
Maryland-based small business firms, Bithgroup Technologies, Inc. and FosterKnowledge, LLC. were part of Navigator’s proposal and provide additional value in providing IT Consulting Services to MEEC member organizations.
