Arc Aspicio Supports Anti-Human Trafficking Non-Profit Organization 

Washington, DC, February 14, 2017 — Arc Aspicio started a pro bono project for Courtney’s House, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the victims and survivors of human trafficking. Arc Aspicio supports Courtney’s House on their priority needs.

The partnership, which started in October 2016, includes an extensive strategy for communications, fundraising, and volunteer coordination. This streamlines Courtney’s House day-to-day business activities and extends the non-profit’s outreach to communities and survivors.

“The partnership with Courtney’s House was a natural fit for us and we are excited to continue making an impact on the fight against human trafficking,” says Despina Panagoulias, an Arc Aspicio manager leading the pro bono project. “Refreshing their website, establishing a better social media presence, and organizing their fundraising and volunteer outreach means that Courtney’s House has a greater ability to save lives and spread the word about the dangers of human trafficking.”

The pro bono support that Arc Aspicio provides for Courtney’s House aligns closely with the company’s mission. Arc Aspicio is devoted to the fight against human trafficking, and the company continues to pursue projects supporting this mission. Arc Aspicio won the GovCon Program of the Year Award for their data analytics project combating human trafficking in 2014.

Pro bono work is part of a broad community involvement strategy that has previously included work with the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation and the Central Union Mission in Washington, D.C.

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

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?
