Contract Management Support (CMS)

Contract Closeout Services
Contract Management Support (CMS) services are specifically designed to provide contract closeout support services to federal government contracting offices. CMS services will help mitigate the critical government shortage of contract specialists by focusing on providing post-contract award administration support services that are not inherently governmental functions.

The AbilityOne Program is providing critical support to government contracting offices by freeing up time for the contracting workforce to address more mission-critical and inherently-governmental functions, while at the same time facilitating the return of unused obligated contract funds to the government.

CMS contract closeout support services are a true "win-win" solution for the government. Government contracting personnel shortages are mitigated through quality and timely service delivery through the AbilityOne Program. The government regains use of obligated contract funds that were not expended in the completion of the contract. Employees working through the AbilityOne Program, to include Wounded Warriors and Service Disabled Veterans, gain much needed employment opportunities in a career-oriented, upwardly-mobile professional field.

NIB is seeking motivated individuals who are blind to join its Contract Management Support (CMS) training program. The objective is to assist in the development of high-growth career opportunities for people who are blind by providing high-level training in the field of contract management.

The AbilityOne Program is partnering with the Department of Defense's Defense Acquisition University (DAU) to provide the core training courses required to establish a foundation on contract management. The training is conducted in two tracks. Track 1 focuses on contract close-outs and requires a four-year degree or equivalent work experience. Track 2 requires a four-year degree and 24 business credits and focuses on direct placement in the federal government as an 1102 Contract Specialist.
