GovCon Awards Announce Arc Aspicio as a 2016 Finalist

Washington, DC, September 26, 2016 — The Greater Washington Government Contractor (GovCon) Awards have recognized Arc Aspicio by naming the consulting firm as a finalist in the category Contractor of the Year. These distinguished awards honor the best organizations in the government contracting community for 2016.

A prestigious panel of industry and government professionals analyze a company’s leadership, innovation, and commitment to excellence in the region’s government contracting sector in order to determine the finalists and the ultimate winners of the award categories. 

The Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce awards the Contractor of the Year Award, which includes four categories based on revenue size, to organizations with distinguished financial achievements, operational accomplishments, and outstanding contributions during the year of 2016 to employees, the government contracting industry, and the U. S. Government. The GovCon Awards named Arc Aspicio as a finalist in the Contractor of the Year up to $25 million category. 

“It is a privilege to be named as a GovCon finalist in such a fiercely competitive market,” said Lynn Ann Casey, Chief Executive Officer. “This recognition acknowledges not only our accomplishments, but also the impact that our talented and hardworking employees have had on the Federal consulting industry.”

 

This announcement acknowledges the company’s strength and growth in Arc Aspicio’s primary focus areas, mission-critical consulting and strategic planning, and helps the company grow closer to its goal of becoming the most trusted homeland security consulting company in the nation.

Arc Aspicio is a previous winner of the GovCon Awards for Program of the Year, and a previous finalist for Contractor of the Year in the same category.

The judging panel will announce the winners of the 2016 GovCon Awards at the 14th Annual Awards Gala on November 1, 2016. For more information about the GovCon Awards, visit their page on the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce website http://www.novachamber.org/govcon-awards.html.

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?
