FSA to continue federal law enforcement support services with $1.3 billion DOJ contract
March 31, 2020
Since its founding in 2004, FSA has performed behind-the-scenes administrative, legal and investigative work for agencies in the U.S. Department of Justice and other organizations in the federal law enforcement and homeland security communities. FSA was recently awarded a potential $1.3 billion follow-on DOJ contract to continue providing services through 2026.
“The dedication to mission, work ethic, and team environment that FSA employees demonstrate on a daily basis to our DOJ customers has afforded us this continued opportunity to serve,” said Steve Derr, General Manager at FSA.
The government services provider employs more than 2,000 professionals in all 50 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam who support missions ranging from anti-money laundering and language services to removing illegal weapons from the streets and fighting the nation’s opioid epidemic.
“Our employees have become a critical resource to the DOJ law enforcement mission and valued members of the support staff to the department’s agencies and U.S. Attorney offices across the country,” Derr said.
For many FSA team members, the mission and the feeling of belonging contribute to their sense of job satisfaction.
“It feels good to have our customers rely on us as to what should be done for their paperwork,” said Joyce Cruesoe, a supervisory records examiner/analyst who supports the Drug Enforcement Administration. “Plus, I’ve formed lifelong friendships with both my FSA teammates and the federal employees we are co-located with. It’s more like a family.”
This is the third consecutive time FSA has won the DOJ contract, after its original award in 2004 and subsequent award in 2011.
“We are launching FSA version 3.0,” said George B. Mendiola, Jr., FSA’s Managing Director. “We are making targeted investments and modernizing our business to better support the 14 agencies we serve.”
FSA is the longest serving contractor on the program since the Asset Forfeiture Program was established following the enactment of the Comprehensive Crime Control Act of 1984.
“Ultimately, we want to help DOJ enhance public safety by disrupting dangerous criminal organizations that threaten communities nationwide,” Mendiola said.
