Case Studies and White Papers GLAAS


The Opportunity

USAID needed its manual contract writing processes replaced with a single enterprise system for its 80 Missions across the globe.

Our Approach

Devis successfully completed the initial worldwide deployment and subsequent upgrades of GLAAS for USAID. The original deployment brought the enterprise business system to all 82 USAID locations worldwide, fully replacing the legacy system and providing a Solution Center to support users. Devis worked with each office and mission to integrate GLAAS into their daily operations.

Building and managing a federal agency case management platform requires managing multiple stakeholders across the agency, managing unique location and business processes, and maintaining important, agency-wide system testing and integration. To address these complexities, Devis employed a custom, cross-matrixed staffing plan, involving 60 project staff from four different organizations.
