Proven planning and procurement support

Our team of experienced consultants has an outstanding reputation with a successful performance track record of justifying investments in technology projects and selecting implementation vendors. Our planning services focus on producing feasibility studies, alternatives analyses, cost/benefit analyses, requirements analyses, specification definitions, project budgets, and cost allocation plans as part of creating Advance Planning Documents (APD) and related project investment studies.

Unparalleled consulting experience

We have more than 20 years of experience performing feasibility studies, procurement support, project management, quality assurance (QA) and independent verification and validation (IV&V) on large, complex systems in nearly every state in the nation.

Superior oversight and risk strategies

Our project oversight and risk management services are designed to ensure that project activities are managed, controlled, coordinated, supervised, and focused on the goals and objectives of the project. It is critical to the success of any project that status, risks, issues, and concerns be continually addressed. Our staff apply structured, standards-based approaches to the analysis, review, demonstration, and testing of critical system-development processes and products. Our project management oversight and risk management services include:

  • Project management oversight. We help ensure that project activities occur as scheduled, risks are averted or managed to reduce their impact, and accountability at all levels is enforced.
  • Quality assurance. Our staff focuses on life-cycle development and test processes so that defects are identified earlier in the process when remediation is more cost-effective.
  • Independent verification and validation. These services verify that the system being developed meets the client’s needs.
