Fairfax, VA – WTI, an innovative small business leader in mobile and web application development, is pleased to announce that it recently received overall “Exceptional” ratings from the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) on Contractor Performance Assessment Reports (CPARs) for three separate contract initiatives. To achieve an Exceptional rating, a Contractor’s performance must not only meet but exceed many contract requirements and result in multiple significant benefits to the Government.

WTI has been an industry partner of BBG since 2013.  BBG oversees all U.S. civilian international media and is also the board that governs those broadcasts and depends upon effective mobile applications to support its critical communications mission. WTI was engaged by the Agency to increase worldwide client engagement and utilization of its digital services.

CPARS is a web-enabled application that collects and manages the library of automated Contractor Performance Assessment Reports (CPARs). A CPAR assessment is based on objective facts and supported by program and contract management data, such as cost performance reports, customer comments, quality reviews, technical interchange meetings, financial solvency assessments, construction/production management reviews, contractor operations reviews, functional performance evaluations, and earned contract incentives.

Specifically, WTI received “Exceptional” CPARs assessments on three separate contract initiatives that focused on digital innovation – one for JavaScript, HTML and CSS development for cross-platform application development; another for increasing user interaction, engagement and usability on BBG’s public-facing websites; and a third for development, design, maintenance and upgrade of a suite of mobile applications.

Some of the exceptional benefits of WTI’s work cited in CPARs include:

  • Apps regularly highly-rated by users, all with at least a 4-star rating, and some in upper-four-star range
  • App work has showcased to both Houses of Congress, members of the State Department and USAID
  • Globally in the Google Play and Apple App Store apps frequently ranked in the top 20 news applications for many of audience/target countries in Africa, South America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, S.E. Asia with surges into the top 10
  • The mobile news platform WTI helped develop across components of the BBG – and used around the world – was named a finalist for the “Best Mobile Publishing Product or Service” in the GSM Association (GSMA) 2014 Global Mobile Awards. This unique mobile app provides news and information for people in more than 100 countries, in 43 languages on the world’s two largest smartphone and tablet platforms
  • In March 2015, another multipurpose news app WTI co-developed, to engage one of Africa’s largest mobile markets, was named finalist at GSMA Global Mobile Awards.

WTI’s President, Cindy Ford, appreciates the opportunity to support BBG’s mission to inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy.  Ms. Ford feels strongly that, “WTI’s tagline is Trusted to DeliverSM – and our favorable CPARs for BBG are evidence we live up to our motto.”

To date, WTI has received numerous awards and commendations for its Federal Government portfolio to include: a commendation for outstanding performance from the Chief Technology Office at Defense Information Systems Agency, recognition of outstanding technical expertise on four separate program initiatives for the State Department, and top Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System ratings on multiple Federal contracts for DoD and Civilian agencies.
