Integrated Management System
An Integrated Management System That Communicates Critical Information
Our proven Integrated Management System (IMS), which we have refined over the past 10 years, has two distinct elements. The back-office element on the right ensures smooth electronic conduct of task order and program work. The customer-facing element on the left shows the relation between the back office and our clients, with a SharePoint (SP) portal as the crucial electronic link. It also conveys our understanding that our IMS must provide transparency and collaboration opportunities.
With secure, role-based access, we can adapt the system quickly to offer controlled access to Federal and vendor “roles” for processing task orders and for critical reporting and electronic information capture of client task orders. Our IMS processes every aspect of program and task order management using seven subsystems that we link electronically—for internal and external uses.
- Service Level Agreement Subsystem: To track, manage, and enhance performance
- Network Operations Control Center (NOCC): We own/operate our a cutting-edge 24/7 NOCC
- Trouble Ticketing: Remedy- & MS Dynamics-based Help Desk System to log, track, and resolve issues
- MS Project: We use MS Project to manage detail on individual task orders and to coordinate resources and schedules across multiple task orders in client programs
- Materials Management System (MMS): Allows us to track and manage materials
- Inventory Logistics System (ILS): Lets us manage, track, and deploy inventory
- Deltek: Government-certified Enterprise Resource Management system provides comprehensive program management support with Earned Value Management capabilities
Our IMS also includes a SP element that we have evolved on other IDIQ contracts for 11 years to optimize communication among all client program parties as shown below.
