U.S. Communities and National IPA, both wholly-owned subsidiaries of OMNIA Partners, have come together as OMNIA Partners, Public Sector. All public sector participants already registered with National IPA or U.S. Communities continue to have access to all contracts, with certain exceptions, in the portfolio and do not need to re-register to use a legacy National IPA, legacy U.S. Communities, or new OMNIA Partners contract. U.S. Communities and National IPA remain separate legal entities and lead agency contracts completed under each brand are effective and available for use through the contract’s approved term. In the event we believe re-registration is necessary for any reason, OMNIA Partners will let you know.

The WELL Building Standard™ is the first building standard to focus on the health and wellness of building occupants. Developed by Delos and managed by the International WELL Building Institute™, WELL was designed using evidence-based medical and scientific research to create a built environment that better supports human health and well-being.
The WELL building Standard™ provides a model for design and construction to integrate human health features in the built environment. This program is a performance based system to measure the impact of built environments on human health.

Now more than ever our space needs to be flexible, and responsive. But the common need is still power. Inspired by this nomadic affinity, Agile distributes data, power or both to places for individuals and groups. Agile, designed by PLD Design, evolved to solve for movement, reconfigurability and versatility in work and learning environments. Sliding perches and planter boxes along with surfaces, privacy elements and lots of color choices, Agile gives you a reason to get excited about power.
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) sought to create a versatile space that accentuated their location behind Independence Hall. This space needed to seamlessly transition from an open plan to private offices, including spaces for entertainment, connection, and focus.
Despite their variety of needs, Meyer Design sought an efficient and cost-effective solution that could accommodate limited design hours. OFS Brands’ array of space solutions and OMNIA Partners (subsidiary National IPA) contract proved perfect to craft a functional, beautiful, and personalized space that went beyond their expectations.
By using the OMNIA Partners (subsidiary National IPA) contract which offers a great pricing structure, there was no reason to send the furniture package to bid. This allowed the design team the time and freedom to fully specify one manufacturer and delve deep into the options they had to offer. The time typically allocated to bidding could now be spent paying attention to details within the design. The overall project was a success and the client is very happy!

The North American Mission Board sought a space that better reflected their brand and supported their spatial needs. As a company that helps with church planting, training, and fundraising, they needed to move from private offices to a larger mix between open plan, private office, and collaborative third spaces. They reached out to Myrick Gurosky to help with the design, who also drew Hatcher Schuster into the picture. Hatcher Schuster, a design firm who frequently collaborates with OFS, invited the North American Mission Board team to the Atlanta OFS showroom.
At the showroom, the team was impressed with the combination of great pricing and design detail, falling especially in love with Staks—the perfect blend of collaborative and private workspaces. OFS also belongs to the OMNIA Partners' contract, which provided a deeper discount—and better use of the NAMB budget. With the contract, extensive breadth of line, and relationship between Hatcher Schuster and OFS, it was the obvious solution. Today, the North American Mission Board team adores their new space as it better highlights the work that they do and supports their future endeavors.
