A Homeland Security Knowledge Hub

A Homeland Security Knowledge Hub

Today's Government landscape is becoming more challenging than ever. With year-on-year budget cuts, sequestration, and a greater public focus on monetary waste, it translates to a more cost-conscientious, delivery-focused government client. This makes for an even more challenging environment for Government contractors.

Arc Aspicio has always prided itself on being mission-focused and delivering above average projects. Today, while we continue to make the client's mission our own, we must continually up our game by operating with a laser focus on innovation, integrity, and consistently making a difference.

Our company strives for excellence in delivering cutting-edge and impactful solutions to our clients. One key way we do this is our state-of the-art knowledge hub: Initio. Initio connects our employees across projects within a secure environment, and by allowing them to exchange tools, templates, best practices, and other industry standards. It allows our team to compare ways to drive innovation into day-to-day deliverables and strategic off-sites with our clients. It helps us remain focused on ethics from our leaders to our project managers who face challenging decisions every day.

With our ever-present focus on building lasting partnerships with our clients, it is clear that these practices start with our home base, the company. Our Initio portal includes a social media feed that allows instantaneous access to expertise across the company—in homeland security mission knowledge, and functional areas such as information sharing, human capital, strategic planning, outreach, and systems development.

Our knowledge hub allows our employees to be creative and flexible through today's challenging times of governmental cutbacks. To deliver exceptional service in a time of budget pressure, enabling our employees through our homeland security knowledge hub and a strong culture of excellence, we can deliver innovative solutions without compromise.

As we continue our natural progression toward becoming the most trusted homeland security consulting company, our path is clear. Through ethics-driven management and a way to exchange knowledge across the homeland security community, we are ready to build trust and set the standard for client satisfaction.

Ask us about Initio, our homeland security knowledge hub. And, more importantly, ask about our culture of learning, ethics, and innovation.

Confessions of a Chief Strategy Officer

Confessions of a Chief Strategy Officer

I’ll admit it, I was a little smug. After more than 20 years in the consulting business helping clients develop, implement, and integrate their strategies, I thought… “how hard could it be to do the same things for my own company – a company of consultants?” I had the commitment of my leadership, a group of talented people, and a plan and resources to grow the company. We had energy and we had a great process and tools to successful. What could go wrong?

#Innovate Your Heart Out: We See an Innovation Day in Your Future

Innovation is difficult to harness for organizations of all sizes (Government and private sector alike). Replicating a process to encourage and produce innovation is even more challenging. Innovating in a structured space and time seems counter-intuitive, and begs the question: can thinking outside the box be a structured activity? Arc Aspicio recently held an Innovation Day to answer this question.

A Unified Brand Helps Serve a Complex Mission

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), created in 2003, undertook the most significant reorganization of federal agencies since the Cold War. It brought together federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies with a focus on securing the U.S. from threats in a collaborative way. DHS pulls together five complex mission areas: preventing terrorism and enhancing security; managing our borders; administering immigration laws; securing cyberspace; and ensuring disaster resilience.

Towards Preparedness and an Emergency Management Workforce of the Future

Towards Preparedness and an Emergency Management Workforce of the Future

Grit and determination. This is what the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) workforce is known for. After what is arguably the most challenging year in its history, the FEMA leadership called on the agency to enable the workforce through four elements: build, empower, sustain, and train. A key factor in creating a scalable, sustainable disaster response workforce is to foster a proactive culture, one focused on preparedness. A proactive mindset can create an environment that asks the “what if” questions that lead to more prepared response efforts.

Achieving Strategy Breakthroughs by Enabling the Operational Workforce

Are you developing a strategy but are unsure where to start, what to rely on, and who to engage when driving a business, organization, or agency forward? Start by enabling the operational workforce. The workforce includes those who are executing daily tasks and operations of the many programs within an organization. Enabling the workforce gives them authority, allowing them to access their full potential to achieve desired results, and helps the Government develop, communicate, and implement strategy.
