Arc Aspicio Launches New Website

Arc Aspicio
Launches New 
Website

Passion for homeland security is the driving force in our company. We love what we do. And we love our new website!

Arc Aspicio is thrilled to announce the launch of the new site. It provides our visitors – the Government, recruits, and our partners – with more information about our company, our mission focus and our services, and our talented people. It also improves opportunities for participation in the broader homeland security community through our new blog and its integration with relevant social media sites.

The new site offers additional insight into the driving forces behind what makes Arc Aspicio unique. Because of our love of dogs, our company mascot ( Magnum), and our support of the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF), we have included dog paw shaped links to our Dogs Rule page. Our insights, including press releases, blog entries, hotlinks, trends, and articles are located in colorful squares simply because we like squares. On our new site, visitors can meet our leaders and even see what we look like! They can also read about our Corporate Ethics and Compliance Program, which mirrors those of much larger government contractors. Similarly, you will see how Arc Aspicio is giving back to the community through our work with SDF and our recent blood drive in support of Children’s Hospital.

At Arc Aspicio, we are building a community that promotes collaboration, continuous learning, innovation, and intelligence to improve homeland security. In addition to providing our insights regarding border security, emergency preparedness, privacy, immigration, and transportation security, our new website offers an overview of our focus on six key mission areas: transportation security, border management, immigration, law enforcement, emergency management, and intelligence.

Arc Aspicio is dedicated to connecting homeland security professionals. Our new site uses various social media platforms including Twitter, GovLoop, and LinkedIn. We also make it easy for our visitors to read our blog, stay connected to us by signing up for email updates, and our very popular weekly homeland security newsletter (which has nearly 3,000 subscribers).

Boosting the Mission: Developing Acquisition Requirements Guidance

Boosting the Mission: Developing Acquisition Requirements Guidance

To keep up with the fast pace of change in the field of Government acquisitions, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) components are developing their own acquisition requirements (AR) policies. However, without specific timeframes to finalize these policies, DHS agencies often lack guidance on how to develop ARs. Among DHS agencies, the U.S. Coast Guard is leading the way with their own formal policy to describe this process. To compliment the U.S. Coast Guard’s policy, DHS created the Joint Requirements Integration and Management System (JRIMS) to offer direction for agencies—to review, validate, and suggest solutions for capability gaps and requirements.

Think, Key, Speak: Purposeful Communications

Think, Key, Speak: Purposeful Communications

I spent the early years of my career in the United States Navy as a Naval Flight Officer on the E-2C Hawkeye, the Navy’s aircraft carrier-based Airborne Early Warning and Command and Control platform. The various missions of the aircraft demand that aircrew monitor up to ten radio frequencies, and actively speak on three or four of those, at any given moment in flight.

How Can Communities Ready Themselves for a Major Power Grid Event?

How Can Communities Ready Themselves for a Major Power Grid Event?

Communities are often the foundation for an expedited recovery following major events. But how can communities strengthen their response to, for example, a major cyber-attack or natural event, such as an Electronic Magnetic Pulse solar flare? A United States electrical grid failure could destroy a number of the nation’s high voltage transformers causing widespread outages for several weeks, even months. A public health emergency could quickly ensue particularly among the vulnerable as the ripple effects cause significant societal disruption. The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) strategic plan encourages and empowers communities to prepare for the inevitable impacts of future disasters. How can communities prime for major events?

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?
