Our personnel have proven experience in developing project schedules and milestones, Concept of Operations (CONOPS), detailed action plans, cost estimates and models, cost and schedule baselines, and program acquisition support to ACAT Level 1-3 programs in the DoD 5000 series. Our program and financial management services have earned numerous SPAWAR Lightning Bolt Awards and formal Letters of Recognition.
Our demonstrated capabilities include the following:
✔Established acquisition documentation for the procurement of commercial leased satellites, the development of the $1B Launch Vehicle Strategy, and the very successful UFO Constellation Reallocation Project which “resulted in approximately $24M in (Government) cost avoidance”
✔Automated SPAWAR Service Delivery Status Report saving over 100 man-hours per year, and was nominated for a SPAWAR efficiency award
✔Reduced PEO Space Systems IT costs by more than 12% under the “Cost of Doing Business” initiative
Our budget experience includes managing the budget for SSC Atlantic’s Horn of Africa Networks and Telecommunications IPT and the Navy Electronic Security System budgets. Our management of the budget entailed the development of a Spend Plan Budget template that incorporates all facets of project requirements to include labor, travel, contracts, Other Direct Charges, external competencies, and project oversight management requirements.
Our Exceptional Past Performance Includes The Following Examples
SPAWAR COMPTROLLER Budget and Financial Services
VPSI supports the SPAWAR Government Travel Charge Card program, and acts as the Agency Program Coordinator. We perform on-site processing of GTCC account information and provide GTCC reports both at the SPAWAR Claimancy and Headquarters levels as prescribed by the FMR. As part of the SPAWAR Travel Group, our personnel manage the DTS Help Desk, which provides assistance and training to government travelers. Our services include the preparation of Joint Travel Regulation/Joint Federal Travel Regulations compliant Manual Travel Orders.

SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic (SSC LANT) Program Management Services
VPSI provides Program and Financial Management Support to the Navy Electronic Security Systems (Navy ESS) IPT within the Business and Force Support Budget Plan, and the Horn of Africa (HoA) Networks and Telecommunications Sub-Portfolio within the Transport and Communications Infrastructure (TCI) BP. VPSI’s support has included development of scalable and customized Spend Plan Budget templates for use by the Navy ESS IPT and HoA Sub-IPT to develop concise budgets for program sponsors. VPSI’s use of a standardized SPB for these programs has allowed them to provide the same information to the USAFRICOM Sponsor at Camp Lemonnier Djibouti. Additionally, VPSI’s in-depth knowledge of DoD and DoN Financial Management Regulations and program execution requirements has been key to the Navy ESS IPT Lead and HoA Sub-IPT Lead turning to VPSI to provide thoroughly reviewed programmatic and financial recommendations and solutions for the allocation of project funding for ongoing and future projects.
SPAWAR PMW 205, Naval Enterprise Networks
We supported achieving a major contractual milestone of moving from NMCI to NMCI Continuity of Service (CosC) by developing specific sections within the Government Statement of Work (SOW), creating Contract Deliverable Line Items (CDRLs), changing services, and communicating the impact of the new contract to the end-user through NMCI publications and customer forums. We are solely responsible for managing the NMCI Core Build and manage all applications on the Core Build. VPSI also manages the release schedule, reacts to security requirements, and ensures compliance with Government policy. Under our management, this program went from 20% compliance to 100% compliance.

VPSI assisted the PEO with Program Management support services necessary to achieve the delivery of reliable, affordable, flexible, effective and seamless space systems that support the DoD and U.S. Agencies to enable joint, coalition, combined, and Naval operations.
