On Tuesday April 25th there was an industry briefing and executive round-table event at the Center for Innovative Technology Briefing Room located in Herndon Virginia. This event brought together a select group of minority technology company executives, government and NGO partners and NMTC leadership to discuss the need for agreement from our members to engage in NMTC research that brings scale to NMTC growth algorithms. Past NMTC research findings and process discoveries were disclosed and there was agreement to begin to form multiple GSA Schedule CTAs to bring growth both to our members and to the community ecosystems they serve. Team formation would be lead by our Executive Member Team Leaders in a committee governed, mission driven CTA methodology.
The Executive Briefing allowed a select a group active Small Business Administration (SBA) 8A minority technology companies who hold a GSA Schedule 70 award. NMTC Leadership gave an internal view of NMTC’s Governing Operating System (CGOS) design framed from applied research. CGOS’s Vendor Governance Module algorithm designed is to build trust and capacity in the federal, state, local, commercial and international markets.

Vendor Governance is an internal procurement management system that facilitates teaming relationships between the minority technology industry and our public/private sector trading/research/service delivery partners.
NMTC has engaged in research over the past 6 years to develop a teaming plan for our members who have a GSA schedule and wish to leverage the collective power gained through partnerships. Under a GSA Contractor Team Arrangement (CTA), two or more GSA Schedule contractors work together to meet ordering activity needs. By complementing each other’s capabilities, the team offers a total solution to the ordering activity’s requirement, providing a win-win situation for all parties.
