GSA selects Aquilent for refresh project

The General Services Administration has awarded Aquilent Inc. an $836,000 contract to provide services for the design and testing of the rebranded, the company said today.

The contract, which includes four option years, also applies to Spanish-language FirstGov en Espanol.

Aquilent’s contract is part of an overall refreshing of the FirstGov sites, which serve as the federal government’s chief information portals.

Under the deal Laurel, Md.-based Aquilent will work with GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Communications to refresh the look and feel of both Web sites. Aquilent will research public expectations and use best practices for the site redesign to improve consumer satisfaction levels.

Aquilent has tapped two subcontractors for the project—Captura Group of San Diego, which specializes in Hispanic Internet issues, and market reseacher Shugoll Research of Bethesda, Md.
