It is our goal to have full knowledge of client-wide and specific acquisition policies that support assigned missions and functions which fully evaluate the understanding of balance and risk; understanding of the many factors that influence cost, schedule and performance; understanding of metrics needed to manage programs that deliver quality, affordable, supportive and effective systems and products.
Our management is a departmental effort aimed at identifying, assessing and prioritizing needed mission oriented capabilities such as overseeing a regularly scheduled or special functional needs analysis or a study of Agency needs vs. capability gaps, for the purpose of coordinating with potential users.
We will initiate and evaluate studies of different non-system specific, or activity specific material, and non-material approaches or concepts to provide a required capability, furthermore assessing in an operational context the performance characteristics of alternatives when necessary.
Concept Selection Process
Based on resources and availability, we will track and evaluate analysis of the alternative concepts in order to reduce and refine the concept(s) to better meet the mission capability gap. Issues reviewed include new or expanded studies of performance, effectiveness, suitability, critical technologies, estimated costs, risks, competition, and innovation.
We will offer your business recommendations of material and non-material course of action relative to achieving your company’s goals, and personally oversee the establishment of performance measures and associated metrics required to evaluate a possible solution.
Our recommendations are individually selected based on a preferred system concept, excluding material solutions ,that should be continued into Technology Development; furthermore, may correct the deficiency, satisfy a capability gap, or incorporate a new technology that results in the development, acquisition, procurement and deployment of a new item.
Additionally we evaluate and propose to all decision makers of your company a Technology Development Strategy that flows from the completed analysis of alternatives and selected material concepts that may include:

Critique estimating techniques or tools for developing rough cost estimating (Engineering, Estimating, Parametric, etc.) include:
1) ECP and modification costs;
2) Program cost; and
3) Life Cycle Cost/TOC for program.
NOTE: A life cycle cost analysis calculates the cost of a system or product over its entire life span; Total cost of ownership (TCO) is a financial estimate designed to help consumers and enterprise managers assess direct and indirect costs related to the purchase of any capital investment, such as (but not limited to) computer software or hardware. A TCO assessment ideally offers a final statement reflecting not only the cost of purchase but all aspects in the further use and maintenance of the equipment, device, or system considered.
Risk and Opportunity Management
Our company will establish and manage a risk and opportunity management process which includes planning, assessment; including identification and analysis, handling and monitoring, which will all to be integrated and continuously applied throughout the program. Other management actions include:
In order to track and manage risk and opportunity we will develop an organizational structure utilizing the WBS program, as a result create a program that is project specific including contractor representatives.
In conclusion we will specify how risk and opportunity management program will be used within the management of the program; ensuring the staff will select and apply the risk management software accordingly. This will include such activities as tracking, rating and handling risk or opportunity events, identifying the program’s critical path, and determining the probabilities of the program’s completion dates and costs.
