Government Contractor American States Utility Services Implements Deltek’s Contract Lifecycle Management Solution
American States Utility Services (ASUS) will use Deltek CLM to manage its contracts, mitigate risk, and maintain government compliance
HERNDON, Va. – January 17, 2014 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for government contractors and professional services firms, announced that American States Utility Services (ASUS) has selected Deltek Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) as its contract management system. ASUS, a subsidiary of American States Water Company, will use the Deltek solution to help grow its business, mitigate risk and maintain government compliance by capturing all government contract data in a structured contract management system purpose-built for government contractors.
ASUS contracts with the federal government to provide water and wastewater services including: operating, maintaining, renewing, replacing, and constructing new systems on military installations throughout the United States. With an influx of contract modification awards over the past two years combined with anticipated wins over the next five years and the day to day management of hundreds of contracts spread over five subsidiaries, ASUS knew it needed to automate how it manages and tracks its contracts. The company turned to Deltek for a world-class contract management system after a thorough review of other solutions in the marketplace.
Deltek CLM, powered by Compusearch, is the only SaaS solution that offers full contract lifecycle management bringing together all contract data, supporting documentation and integrated workflows into a comprehensive solution that supports the entire enterprise. ASUS will use CLM’s world-class capabilities including electronic alerts, powerful ad hoc reporting on contract status, and direct access to the Clause Library – a database that features FAR, DFARS and supplemental regulations – to automate and improve its contract management processes.
“For a long time, the marketplace has lacked a comprehensive contracts management solution for Federal contractors, but when Deltek launched CLM, we knew it was the revolutionary solution our organization needed to improve our contract and subcontract management processes for now and had necessary scalability for the future,” said Jim Cotton, VP of Contracts and Proposal Development, ASUS. “Deltek is the government contracting industry standard, and its solutions will help us significantly mitigate risks associated with DCAA and DCMA audits so that our business can keep moving forward.”
“Deltek CLM was built specifically to manage multiple, complex contracts and is an important piece of Deltek’s full end-to-end suite of business applications for government contractors. ASUS will leverage CLM to automate its growing contracts practice and strengthen its compliance, using the only contract management solution in the marketplace that natively understands government contracting,” said Tom Mazich, Deltek’s Executive VP and General Manager – GovCon. “We are thrilled to welcome American States Utility Services to the Deltek family and provide them with the solution and services they need to continue their success.”
American States Utility Services, Inc. (ASUS) is the government contracting subsidiary of American States Water Company. ASUS has 152 employees and has fast paced growth in mind as more and more military contracts for water services go private.
ASUS, Inc. contracts with the federal government to provide water and wastewater services including: operating, maintaining, renewing, replacing, and constructing new systems on military installations throughout the United States.
