MSM Group Inc. Lands Long Term Deal with Sierra Lobo

March 1, 2005

Professional Services Automation for NASA contractors is a business model niche ideally suited for MSM Group Inc. of Fairview Park. The woman owned, veteran owned small business, which provides end-to-end integrated Project Management Accounting solutions to government contractors, recently signed a multiyear subcontract with Sierra Lobo Inc. of Freemont Ohio. Under the terms of the agreement, MSM Group will provide back-office automation and IT support for Sierra Lobo’s recently awarded Test Facilities Operations and Maintenance and Engineering (TFOME) contract at the NASA John Glenn Research Center. “It is truly a pleasure to be working with such a great company on this exciting opportunity at NASA”, said MSM Group CEO Deborah A. Riley.

Ms. Riley would not disclose the dollar value of the contract signed March 28, but indicated it could, with all option years exercised, run ten years.

To meet the anticipated growth, MSM Group added 3 key employees in 2004. Two of the three new employees collectively bring over forty years’ experience managing large government contracts, including the science and engineering contract at NASA Glenn. The third has an extensive background and experience in government IT solutions. “We are well positioned to perform successfully on the new TFOME subcontract as well as the additional opportunities that will present themselves in 2005”, said Ms. Riley.

MSM Group Inc. has developed proprietary time and expense software, web based project management portals, and end-to-end integrated accounting solutions that serve the local contractor community. These solutions enable NASA contractors to focus on their core technical capabilities while at the same time, delivering enterprise-wide solutions in an extremely cost-effective manner.
