On Friday May 18, 2012, Govplace joined over 10,000 area commuters for the 2012 Bike to Work Day, hosted by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. Bike to Work Day celebrates bicycling “as a clean, fun and healthy way to get to work”.  As an environmentally friendly organization, Govplace encouraged its employees to participate in this worthwhile event. As an added bonus, Govpace created a custom bike “parking lot” for employees who biked to work and distributed goodie bags that contained Gatorade and energy bars. Govplace enjoyed taking part of this event and looks forward to increasing the amount of bikers next year. Happy Cycling!

“One of 10,000”

Govplace is happy to take part in the 14th annual celebration benefiting the Children’s Inn at The National Institutes of Health (NIH). Because the Inn does not receive funds, it relies entirely on the generosity of outside donors. Each year the Bethesda AFCEA chapter sponsors an annual gala and all the proceeds go to the Children’s Inn.

 

 

“ Since opening in 1990, more than 10,000 children from all 50 states and more than 80 countries have stayed at The Children’s Inn while participating in ground breaking medical research at the National Institutes of Health. Many of the treatments received at the NIH are not available at any other medical facility and this often is their last, best hope. Each Inn resident has a story to tell. Each child is one of 10,000.”

Ryan McCullough

Ryan McCullough, VP of the Federal Division of Govplace recently appeared on the 1500 AM radio show, In Depth with Francis Rose.

On the radio show, McCullough stated that collaborations between agencies and vendors is increasing, which will ultimately benefit agencies, who will see better contracting.

“I think we are seeing a trend there that’s obviously faster there than at some other [agencies],” Ryan says. “There are a number of groups that are engaging the same kind of strategy that GSA has been talking about. Where I think we’re seeing less of it is on the task order side – the things that are a specific mission requirement being addressed.”

Additional issues discussed  includes cloud computing, data center consolidation, and communication between industry and government.

For more information, and to listen to the audio, go to the 1500 AM In Depth website.
