Post-award Support

Delivering on a recently awarded government or Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) program is a complex endeavor and involves several documents and other requirements that most companies are not used to generating for a typical product development program. Our consultants have extensive experience providing systems integration services and collaborating with large project teams to provide support in the overall management and coordination of U.S. government contracts.  Working with the principals of the Project Management Institute (PMI), we partner with you to develop the mission- critical tools necessary for the facilitation and management of the total project lifecycle.

Our consultants work with your team to develop a customized project management plan that focuses on the management, integration, and monitoring of your project’s scope, schedule, and budget.  This process involves working closely with you on the development, implementation, and maintenance of core project management tools, including the project Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), the Integrated Master Schedule (IMS), and the risk management plan, as well as helping you fulfill all of the requirements requested by the contracting agency.

Our Post-award Support Services include:

  • Drafting, executing, and updating the Program Management Plan and Product Development Plans, including:
