Hire CIO, Inc. Awarded U.S. General Services Agreement, Ohio State Term Schedule

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - March 10, 2008) - Hire CIO, Inc., a Columbus, Ohio-based operations and technology-focused consulting firm, recently announced it has been awarded both the U.S. General Services Agreement (GSA) and the Ohio State Term Schedule (STS).

"The process took nearly a year to complete, but it was worth it," states Mary Olsen Dielman, Managing Partner for Hire CIO. "Our ideal client is one with a need to increase productivity, reduce cost and improve customer service. Fortunately, Governor Strickland is striving to create programs to do just that!" Hire CIO is uniquely positioned to make a positive impact within government agencies, and is looking forward to the opportunity to do so. "Our services and the government's need for assistance really do fit 'hand in glove,'" adds Dielman.

Hire CIO's innovative models, developed by former COOs and CIOs, demonstrate immediate value to their clients. These models allow Hire CIO's experts to quickly analyze, assess and define areas for the greatest improvement. Often, the savings realized through this process are used to reduce budgets when mandatory cuts are required, or are used to fund other needed initiatives.

"We look forward to bringing a new approach to consulting to the government, particularly the State of Ohio," states Dielman. "Additionally, we hope the GSA and STS will enable Hire CIO to earn projects that allow us to be involved in improving the delivery of services provided by the Federal and State agencies to all stakeholders, be they taxpayers, businesses or others who seek services from these agencies."
