Starmark Provides Camera Crews for FEMA’s “Weapons of Mass Destruction” Seminar
Starmark International – the South Florida advertising, and Internet agency known for effectively branding, building and marketing global companies – recently covered the Weapons of Mass Destruction seminar with camera crews in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Starmark was chosen to provide camera services for FEMA’s “Weapons of Mass Destruction” seminar as part of the highly coveted Federal Supply Schedule Contracts they have been awarded by the Government Services Administration (GSA).
Starmark was contracted to provide a video crew to tape the seminar as a small part of their overall FEMA contract that provides support for EENET (Emergency Education Network). Starmark is also providing EENET with full service marketing, media, public information, video and Internet services under a blanket contract. Starmark is able to offer marketing, Internet and public information experience, and government acumen – tempered with an understanding of budgetary requirements and practicalities – and top-flight creative to government agencies as a result of securing its two contract schedules.
The first schedule, GS-23-F-0397K, encompasses SIN 738-8 Full Service Marketing, Media and Public Information Services, and SIN 738-12 Videotape and Film Production Services. The second contract, GS-23F-0396K covers SIN 738-2 Web Site Design. The Federal Supply Schedule is a stringent process, conducted by the GSA, of selecting service companies that offer quality work at fair and reasonable prices. All Federal Government Agencies are authorized to use these pre-approved companies without going through the extended bid process for services priced up to $1 million per procurement.
Starmark, Inc., located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Washington D.C., was founded in 1978 in Chicago as an integrated marketing communications and advertising agency serving B2B clients – both entrepreneurs and Fortune 1000 companies – and government agencies. Among Starmark’s achievements is being the first company to be named to Inc. Magazine’s List of the 500 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies for 5 years in a row. In 1998, Starmark’s founders relocated Starmark to Fort Lauderdale, acquired TKOnet, a 3-year-old Internet company, and formed Starmark International, Inc., to offer branding, advertising and Internet services to a growing base of national and international clientele.
