This summer has proven to be highly unpredictable and encouraging to us here at Friends Interpreting Services (FIS) LLC., while we hope the best experience to our tristate regional citizens. This encouragement became a mid-summer reality with FIS being finally approved, and awarded a GSA Holder designation, and to that effect we celebrate with great tin- tabulations.

Before we go on, it is important to reference back at the 17 plus months of activities that led up to this achievement, and to acknowledge and pay tribute to those FIS employees, consultants, Deaf community supporters, clients, friends and my family members (in particular) that sacrificed to make this a possibility and success, the space here isn’t enough to accommodate the full roster but none-the-less you are highly appreciated and celebrated; you all remain the champions of FIS LLC.

How does this GSA Holder designation apply to or affect the relationship that exist between FIS LLC, her clients, family, support facilities, and industry?  This designation qualifies FIS’ listing on the GSA Advantage site, which serves as the worldwide shopping network that any federal agency can access and browse to locate and buy wide varieties of products and services from GSA Schedule contracts. This listing allows FIS LLC, to do business and contract with any federal government entity. That implies that your FIS LLC, can now support both your federal and civilian contracting needs as both a federal and civilian supplier of choice. It is worth-while remembering that in-addition to the above new development, FIS LLC., is also classified as a 100{8c48b1e85d62ae0dd9cf9f488b2c3801029e40b706dbc908930459fc55bba3d5} small business entity, with a Deaf woman as part of the executive and management, an 8(a) Certified business, WOSB Certified, EDWOSB Certified, SWaM Certified, and DBE Certified.

I look forward to working with you soon!  FIS LLC., is committed to providing the highest quality interpreting services to our business community,  and we are confident that you will be satisfied with the quality and cost offering that await’ you. We strongly believe that a trial will convince you that we are unequivocally the best choice for all your contracting needs. Send us your all your up-coming prospect that requires an American Sign Language Interpreting Services via FIS@friendsinterpretingservices.com.
