Vysnova awarded contract supporting the State Treasurer’s Office (STO) Public Finance Division (PFD) of the State of California

Vysnova Partners, Inc. (Vysnova), serving as a subcontractor to Grant Thornton LLP, will serve in a Program Management role supporting the State Treasurer’s Office (STO) Public Finance Division (PFD) of the State of California with the procurement of a replacement system for its existing Debt Management System (DMS).

The STO has broad authority and responsibility for over $115 billion in outstanding State debt (bonds, notes, and commercial paper). The STO provides for the issuance and sale of all State bonds, notes, and other evidences of indebtedness issued by the State. The STO’s current Debt Management System (DMS) is inflexible, difficult to modify, and unable to accurately facilitate the STO’s core fiduciary responsibility of timely, accurate, and expeditious payments and transfers of debt service and fees.

Engagement team conducted a current state assessment and a business needs assessment by reviewing existing documentation and interviewing stakeholders in order to document and diagram existing internal processes and system dependencies and recommend process improvements.  The team is also collecting business and technical requirements, conducting a market survey, and drafting acquisition plans and supporting documents (RFI, RFP, etc.) in order to assist STO in conducting a procurement to implement a replacement DMS.

Vysnova wins subcontract supporting the USAID Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU)

Vysnova Partners, Inc. (Vysnova), serving as a subcontractor to Beyond Optimal Strategic Solutions, LLC, was awarded a contract to support the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) as they work to meet the unique challenge of improving the agency’s small business utilization agency-wide, including at the USAID international Mission locations whereby the small business regulations do not apply.  Additionally, this challenge is compounded by the fact that increasing small business utilization must be balanced with competing objectives.

Vysnova is currently supporting the USAID OSDBU office delivering training to its domestic and international acquisition staff.  This comprehensive training includes tailoring the materials to the targeted audience and meeting frequently w the client to ensure that the materials are current and speaking to the changing, pressing needs of the agency.  Additionally, Vysnova facilitates meetings with USAID senior executive staff at the Mission locations to assist in acquisition planning and improving each Mission’s socioeconomic achievements.  Course surveys have illustrated the usefulness and applicability of this effort and the agency’s small business metrics are improving since Vysnova joined the project.
