FAIRFAX, VA – (December 13, 2004) – mLINQS™, LLC and Interstate Worldwide Relocation today jointly announced that the two companies have entered into a partnership to provide federal agencies with a hosted (ASP) version of the mLINQS Relocation Management Reporting System. According to terms of the agreement, Interstate will host and maintain the system on its existing secure government servers. mLINQS will provide application enhancements and customer support for implementation, and both companies will cross-market their existing relocation related services to federal customers.
“This partnership enables mLINQS to take a major step forward to provide a comprehensive Relocation Management Reporting System as defined recently by the General Services Administration (GSA),” said Greg McIntyre, mLINQS President. “Interstate is a well-respected innovator in move management with a long history of providing services to government. The fact that both of our companies are headquartered in northern Virginia will enable us to work together very closely on this project, which we believe will prove advantageous to customers.” mLINQS is headquartered in Fairfax, while Interstate is located in Springfield, Virginia.
Interstate Senior Vice President J.D. Morrissette said, “Interstate has developed unique skill sets based upon our 60-year history working with the federal government. The mLINQS reporting system complements our existing relocation move management service, which we provide to both civilian agencies and DoD. We view mLINQS as a value-added service to our menu of offerings. These are the advanced tools we deploy to underscore our commitment to exceed customer expectations.”
With the eTravel Service (eTS) soon to be ubiquitous in civilian agencies and the Defense Travel System (DTS) being implemented throughout the Department of Defense (DoD), total automation of relocation management is the last remaining initiative to close the loop on all aspects of eTravel in government. GSA issued a proposed rule for the federal relocation management program on November 23, 2004 that requires agencies to have a Relocation Management Reporting System in place by September 30, 2005. DoD has already begun evaluating a number of opportunities to improve its relocation management.
