Category Management Support Services

Our government is working heroically to change the way it does business. And MPS is here to help.

General Services Administration (GSA) is implementing category management best practices to eliminate duplicative and unnecessary cost from nearly $400 billion in commodity spend. To support this massive government-wide change, M Powered Strategies (MPS) teamed up with Mr. Gordon Wade, founder and thought leader of the category management discipline, and ICF to offer GSA a support services option with unmatched experience and expertise in the following areas:
