In an effort to continue to support small business, Y-12 has selected GEMTech Y-12, LLC, (GEMTech) and Technical Resource Alliance (TRA) to help with staffing needs. The agreement between Y-12 and the two companies address Y-12’s existing need for experts from various types of engineering and technical-related disciplines. The agreement also helps to streamline more than 50 existing subcontracts to better serve the site with respect to efficiency and overall cost savings.
The two companies' focus on meeting Y-12 needs, relationship building with both Y-12 and their internal team, and utilization of unique, effective tools have enabled them to provide quicker-than-expected response times and reduced project staffing costs, resulting in a smooth, professional relationship with Y-12 personnel.
In FY 2012, Y-12's collaboration with suppliers was vital as the complex faced budget reductions and uncertainties. Both TRA and GEMTech offered a rebate to Y-12 based on the revenues generated in FY 2012.
