ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ASI Government (ASI), the premier provider of federal "Big A" acquisition thought leadership and support, announced the launch of its Protest Lessons-Learned module in conjunction with the company's Virtual Acquisition Office™ (VAO) subscription service.
A demonstration video of the module is available at https://www.gotovao.com/aboutProtestLLModule.cfm.
Kymm McCabe, ASI's President and CEO, said, "Federal executives consistently decry the fear of sustained protests and the impact of those protests on both the acquisition process and their agency's mission. ASI invested in the Protest Lessons-Learned module to address these concerns and further support our nation's public servants."
In a recent VAO user survey, the overwhelming majority of respondents requested a Protest Lessons-Learned module. ASI's solution is informative, intuitive and interactive, increasing participants' protest knowledge through case studies, a protest risk meter and a traceability matrix, as well as the VAO's library of more than 1,000 protest case decisions.
As a result, VAO subscribers can:
- Learn by exploring lessons learned in eight acquisition categories, with links to relevant Government Accountability Office and court cases.
- Earn continuous learning points (CLPs) and promote critical thinking by exploring protest case studies and completing the associated CLP quiz.
- Validate using the protest risk meter, traceability matrix and relevant templates.
Lisa Akers, President of ASI's Products and Solutions Division, said, "This module elevates our existing VAO protest decision coverage by promoting critical thinking. ASI has coupled real-world case studies with discussion questions, quizzes and validation tools to mitigate the risk of a sustained protest."
Balaji Ramanujam, ASI's Chief Information Officer, said, "ASI has focused heavily on simplified learning and the user experience, leveraging advancements such as an AJAX-based accordion toolkit and MooTools-like menu controls. The result is a streamlined and visually appealing interface which, coupled with incredible content, leads to a rich user experience."
The VAO service facilitates continuous learning for the federal acquisition workforce, wrapping the latest developments, trends and practices into a single comprehensive service that includes news, publications, webinars, templates and an on-call research service.
