The Department of Budget and Management has established a multiple award ID/IQ contract to assist State agencies in obtaining highly qualified firms to perform various management consulting services. Consulting engagement task orders may focus on any aspect of the mission, goals, objectives, operations or management of a State agency, multiple agencies, or component programs of an agency.
