ITHACA, N.Y., Oct. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The CBORD Group, Inc., the leading provider of food and nutrition management to healthcare facilities, has been awarded a General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule for General Purpose Commercial Information Technology Equipment, Software, and Services. This award allows federal, state, and local governments to purchase CBORD® products through a streamlined contracting process that includes prenegotiated prices and terms/conditions for food and nutrition software and services.

Under GSA Schedule 70, CBORD can assist government agencies by providing streamlined food service production, menu engineering, ordering, inventory, nutritional analysis, and clinical diet office management tools. CBORD solutions ensure cost effective, safe, nutritious, and satisfying patient meals.

The General Services Administration performs a rigorous review before awarding this preferred contractor status. CBORD was evaluated on its professional capabilities, corporate structure, performance history, and customer satisfaction. Working under GSA Multiple Award Schedule Contract number GS-35F-0659W, CBORD has GSA status through September 27, 2015.

By selecting CBORD from GSAs list of preapproved vendors, public sector organizations can substantially reduce their procurement costs by eliminating the need to solicit and evaluate multiple bids.

"With the public sector being asked to do more with fewer resources, CBORD can provide critical tools for Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities, institutions, and government agencies to reduce food service costs, increase patient safety, and streamline food service production," said Max Steinhardt, Chief Operating Officer at CBORD.
