For our DoD and NIWC clients, FSI has supported engagements with:

  • The Office of the Chief of Naval Operation
  • The Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition
  • The Office of the Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics

These, in part, included:

Program management: FSI integrated master schedules and managed shipboard installation plans, fielding plans, briefing materials, and budgetary reports in support of program requirements for an Acquisition Category (ACAT) II program.

Acquisition management: FSI served as the contract support lead for multiple ACAT I, II and III programs within NIWC.

For example, within an ACAT 1D program, FSI was responsible for providing acquisition and contracting expertise, and ensuring all statutory and regulatory requirements were met in order to achieve major milestones in accordance with DoDI 5000.2.

The FSI team successfully completed Navy acquisition process gates 3, 4, and 5, which led to a Material Development Decision and approval to proceed to Milestone B.

Risk management: FSI acted as lead for the enterprise to establish a flexible and user-friendly risk management program that integrated an existing Government Off-The-Shelf (GOTS) software tool with standardized business rules.

The enterprise framework (over 200 programsand 2000 users utilizing a common tool) eliminated the necessity to maintain disparate documents and spreadsheets through the deployment ofan enterprise plan and software solution. The solution leveraged a web-based system that provides online collaboration for multiple Navy and DoD organizations.
