We provide acquisition services to Abt Associates global enterprise, supporting both division direct project and corporate indirect spend requirements throughout the entire procurement lifecycle.

Our business systems and processes make it easy for suppliers to partner with us. And we have an unwavering commitment to fairness, integrity and transparency in all procurement transactions.
Abt Associates frequently partners with technical experts for short-term assignments. It is our policy that, when needed, we will contract for services from qualified individuals through the use of consulting agreements. A consulting agreement is entered into only after a good faith assessment is made to determine if the individual meets the definition of an independent contractor, consistent with U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines, state laws and international standards.
If you are interested in partnering with Abt Associates on current work or potential future opportunities, let us know by joining the Partner Registry or, if already registered, by updating your entry.
