Lighting Solution Development and Anthem Federal provide federal contracts program for LED lighting manufacturers

July 10, 2015
Lighting Solution Development has partnered with Anthem Federal to now provide all facets of federal procurement and government contracts acquisition to LED lighting manufacturers. For the next 10-plus years the DOD, DOE, GovEnergy and many of the military contracting divisions will spend well over $1.2 billion on retrofitting US base facilities, both inside and outside the continental US, with LED lighting and energy contracts. LED lighting manufacturers that have not yet focused on Federal Programs should consider this an ideal time to develop their Federal contracting business model.

“With LED lighting retrofits becoming more prevalent in the Federal business opportunities websites ( and, many contracting divisions are now seeking both small and large LED lighting manufacturers that have developed strategic teaming alignments where the LED manufacturer and installation contractor complement each other's core capabilities,” said Marc Pacino, CEO of Anthem Federal.

Lighting Solution Development specializes in providing technical and marketing solutions to advanced lighting manufacturers. “Together, we partner with our clients to build integrated strategies to grow a manufacturer’s Federal contracts business. It is a powerful advantage to have the deep expertise of a former military contracting officer to build your Federal contracts business,” said David Shiller, president of Lighting Solution Development.

This partnership will provide lighting manufacturers with the following suite of federal contracts acquisition services:
• Business development
• Preparation
• Contract claims
• Submittals
• Presentations
• Program development & management
• Resolution
• Bid protests
• Teaming alliances

“Anthem Federal brings over 30 years of experience winning Federal contracts, and they have facilitated the acquisition of over $850 Million in awarded contracts. LED lighting manufacturers with US ownership and that can comply with the US Buy American Act are qualified,” added Shiller. Interested manufacturers should contact David Shiller.
