Our Story: Part 11 - Persistence in Solving Complex Mission Challenges Makes Us Different

At Arc Aspicio, our people have a relentless desire to help our clients accomplish their mission. That is the primary reason we focus on homeland security. Our people find meaning in the work our client’s do.

Our work, which spans across the Department of Homeland Security, all stems from this one root: our client’s mission is our passion. This passion gives us the unique ability to be persistent in solving complex problems, developing compelling strategies, and designing innovative solutions that produce lasting results for our clients and help achieve their mission.

Whether combating human trafficking, or helping build a resilient nation, our clients’ missions are complex and difficult. For us, these challenges are opportunities for our people to apply their skillsets and capabilities while supporting the mission. From the first day on a project, we immerse ourselves into the fabric of our clients’ sites. This allows us to instantly be a collaborative partner. Our dedication to our clients’ missions produces our best work because we care deeply about the outcomes, products, and solutions that will bring success.

But our teams don’t pigeonhole us into just one passion. Our leadership encourages employees to explore new and challenging additional areas of focus and develop knowledge and interests beyond our current roles or client needs. Whether its setting personal moonshots or getting involved in company strategy, Arc Aspicio allows us to chase our future and interests. My personal journey is evidence of that, as my passion centers in the criminal justice space, and more directly in providing support to law enforcement agencies in their effort to combat human trafficking through analytics and technology. I am now leading our Justice account, helping to select projects that are my personal passion.

I also began to develop an interest and passion for how analytics and technology could further support hazard risk awareness and resiliency. Arc Aspicio acknowledged my interests, supported my drive to further develop my skillsets to be successful in both fields, and supported my pursuit to work both areas. As a result, I am lucky enough to work on two projects that spark my passion. For my clients, it means they have a dedicated and passionate team member with the right skillsets to help them meet their mission regardless of the challenge.

My story is not an exception at Arc Aspicio, it’s the rule. Arc Aspicio knows and believes that the key to being successful is aligning our people and their passions with our client missions. Not only does this result in the best outcomes for our clients, but it also allows our people to help shape the future of our world, every day.

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?
