Vienna, Va. – November 3, 2020: Solutions By Design II, LLC (SBD), a leader in management consulting, technology services, and application engineering and maintenance support announced that it has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) ME Management System: Next Generation (MEMS NextGen) Training Program with training management support services.
FNS administers the nutrition assistance programs of the USDA with a mission to provide children and needy families better access to food and a more healthful diet through its food assistance programs and comprehensive nutrition education efforts. FNS supports the USDA’s mission to “do right and feed everyone” by working to end hunger and obesity through the administration of 15 federal nutrition assistance programs. These programs include: The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children; Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program; and a number of adult and child feeding programs (e.g., the National School Lunch Program).
SBD, working with leaders and stakeholders in the FNS Office of Regional Operations Support (ROS) and Office of Information Technology (OIT), will manage the training program for the MEMS Next Gen application. Training management encompasses not only the design, development, and delivery of training, but supporting stakeholder engagement and maintaining regular communication with system end-users. SBD’s support services will adhere to federal, departmental and agency standards, policies and guidance, including best practices in technical documentation of System Development Life Cycle standards, and OIT policies and procedures.
“SBD is excited to be contributing to FNS’s commitment of reducing hunger by providing children and families access to food, a healthful diet, and nutrition education in a way that supports American agriculture and inspires public confidence. We look forward to continuing to provide training management services, determining training requirements and developing, implementing, and conducting a variety of training opportunities and curriculum to support FNS” said Jennifer Bonner, Executive Director of Federal Civilian and Health Sector at SBD.
