Gi4 awarded subcontract to prepare military service members for civilian life
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEESBURG, Va.—Gi4 was awarded a subcontract from CALIBRE Systems, Inc. supporting the Transition Assistance Program (VA TAP) for the Department of Veterans Affairs. VA TAP is a single award five-year contract valued at $135 million that provides training and counseling to service members as they transition from military to civilian life.
With approximately 200,000 servicemembers transitioning to civilian life per year, accessible, clear counseling and training are critical to empowering servicemembers and their families to identify and achieve their goals post-separation.
Under the contract, Gi4 will provide counseling and program management services for military bases implementing VA TAP in the south-central United States. Gi4 personnel will guide servicemembers through initial counseling for current service members to identify their transition pathway and goals, briefings on benefits for veterans and their dependents, and help servicemembers connect with resources in the communities to which they plan to relocate.
As a company founded to serve servicemembers and the institutions that support them, Gi4 believes that the TAP project directly aligns with our mission and goals in a hands-on, concrete way.
“This contract is of personal importance to me,” Gi4 President Retired Lt. Colonel Linda Mosel said, “because when I transitioned to civilian life, it wasn’t easy. Learning about the VA was like drinking from a firehose. They had so much to offer, but I didn’t know where to find it or what was available.”

“It’s also important to help veterans learn about benefits they don’t know that they don’t know,” Mosel said, “Buying a house, for example, might not be top-of-mind for a soldier used to base housing—but it’s important, and the VA has fabulous benefits available.”
In addition to the hands-on on-site counseling, Gi4’s team will provide management services for the TAP project, including regional coordination under Calibre.
Gi4 brings years of management consulting and training support services to the contract from previous work supporting VA projects and contracts, including conducting regulatory impact analysis for the Veterans Benefits Administration and providing management support for the VA’s Financial Services Center. From its inception as an IT systems integrator in 2013, Gi4 has striven to make government human-centered, data-driven, transparent and efficient.
