SPECIAL OPERATIONS CAMPAIGN AFRICA: COMBATTING DISINFORMATION
SOCAFRICA contacted AAS for a partner to assist with its mission to engage with populations across Africa, understand the circulation of information and disinformation, and communicate effectively. AAS worked with SOCAFRICA to understand the unique needs of an international environment, and awarded a five-year, Phase II Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract. This award allows SOCAFRICA to communicate through a number of formal and informal channels, and to understand what information other countries are disseminating on the African continent. In the COVID-19 era, this work also allows the United States to stay engaged through remote surveys and new digital communications tools.
DEFENSE MANPOWER DATA CENTER: SUPPORTING VETERANS AND FAMILIES
In early 2019, the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) urgently required new technology to improve identity management solutions and provide military service members, veterans, and their families all over the world secure access to their benefits and entitlements. AAS developed a new IT contract vehicle to meet DMDC's needs and awarded 13 contracts between June 2019 and the end of FY19. In response to budget pressures, AAS also negotiated millions of dollars of savings from the original proposal, allowing the DMDC to fulfill their mission both efficiently and cost- effectively.
AAS AND THE CDC TACKLE COVID-19
In late January 2020, at the onset of COVID-19 in the United States, the CDC anticipated a surge in the number of calls and emails they would receive and required a massive increase in contractor support. The AAS team quickly created a new task order allowing the CDC to implement surge support in response to the growing need. By April 2020, they had grown the number of service agents tenfold, increased a $1.3 million contract to $5.4 million, and stood up a third contact center. The quick work of AAS acquisitions allowed the CDC to serve the public and release vital information without an interruption in service.
