ManTech has announced the creation of a FEDSIM Center of Excellence (CoE), and the appointment of key FEDSIM experts, Chip Taylor and Steve Lipson, to lead the company’s new proposal, knowledge management and competitive intelligence initiatives, the company reported on Wednesday.
“FEDSIM acquisitions are driving significant business growth, as evidenced by ManTech’s recent $920 million contract with Naval Surface Warfare Center-Crane,” said Yvonne Vervaet, Chief Growth Officer of ManTech. “The increase in billion-dollar FEDSIM awards necessitates investing in our new Center of Excellence and the industry-leading talent to run it.”
ManTech’s FEDSIM CoE has been designed to support GSA’s FEDSIM customers with cost-effective technology solutions at speed. The FEDSIM CoE will provide new strategies and processes to create best practices for the company’s FEDSIM opportunities.
In lieu of the CoE, ManTech has appointed Taylor as vice president of the Government-Wide Procurement Advisory Center, and Lipson as executive director of the FEDSIM Center of Excellence.
The new executives will lead the CoE, bringing over five decades of combined experience in federal procurement. Taylor will be responsible for driving sales across ManTech’s portfolio of Government-Wide IDIQ contracts.
He will also lead enterprise-wide competitive intelligence and knowledge management functions, as well as manage business development for ManTech’s FEDSIM CoE. Prior to joining ManTech, Taylor held a variety of senior positions in operations and business development at Perspecta, Vencore, Engility, Harris and EDS, and has direct experience in working with FEDSIM.
Lipson will bring more than 20 years of experience with government contractors (GovCon) to ManTech. Throughout his career, he served at multiple GovCon organizations, where he gained experience in FEDSIM.
He served at Leidos, Perspecta, GDIT and CGI. In the roles, he has coached, managed and developed oral presentations and proposals for opportunities ranging in value from $20 million to $2.5 billion.
Lipson, a notable FEDSIM expert, has deep experience in delivering critical oral presentations. Prior to joining ManTech he consulted on the orals presentations that helped lead to ManTech’s $920 million FEDSIM award with NSWC-Crane.
“Chip and Steve have well-earned reputations for putting the missions of customers first,” said Vervaet. “Like ManTech, they are trusted partners of government, and recognized for their ability to accelerate mission performance and efficiency.”
