Defense Logistics Agency Turns to ARServices for Assistance on Several Initiatives, Including Data Center Optimization
ARServices, a leading management and technology consulting provider for
the federal government and defense sectors, was awarded contracts by the
Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to staff three new programs and
initiatives, including a key program designed to aid and assist the
agency with the optimization of its data centers.
By selecting ARServices for these three efforts, the DLA will enable
twenty of the company's personnel and subject matter experts to work
collaboratively with agency staff across ten sites.
In the first of its three new projects for the DLA, ARServices will
support the agency as it works towards becoming compliant with the
requirements established by the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB)
Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) (non-R&D), which will
ultimately result in the streamlining and optimization of agency data
Meeting the requirements of the DCOI requires the DLA to have material
accountability for all IT hardware, and to create physical IT asset
inventories for successful completion. In support of these requirements,
ARServices will identify, catalogue, and blueprint assets within 16 DLA
data centers and secret Internet protocol router (SIPR) rooms.
"The federal government and the United States military have been
actively working to reduce the number of data centers they employ as a
way to increase efficiency and cut costs. The biggest obstacle to
achieving compliance with the DCOI has been the lack of knowledge about
what currently exists and how it's being utilized," said Jay McCargo,
the President and CEO of ARServices. "The DLA chose ARServices to help
in this endeavor because of the company's long history of effective work
on behalf of te agency."
In the second of its projects for the DLA, ARServices will work to
support the agency's Research and Development (R&D) Program,
specifically within the Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) program
element. This program element focuses on developing new and innovative
solutions for improving the military's major supply chains.
In its work for the R&D Program, ARServices will assist DLA staff with
providing technical analysis and documentation, implementing standard
and repeatable management processes, and developing and disseminating
outreach and communication materials with a focus on enabling the R&D
Program to operate more effectively.
In its third new scope of work for the DLA, ARServices will assist the
organization's Troop Support, Clothing & Textiles (C&T), Commercial Off
the Shelf (COTS) Program. This program, which will be located at the DLA
Troop Support in Philadelphia, PA, will liaise between military
customers and COTS vendors to facilitate the acquisition of COTS shelter
and support components, and handle all incoming customer inquirers and
In this capacity, ARServices will provide the DLA with a Customer
Service Specialist (CSS (News - Alert)) responsible for supporting military customers
throughout the procurement and lifecycle of the product.
"ARServices has long been a trusted partner to the DLA, responsible for
handling some of the agency's most difficult, mission-critical tasks and
responsibilities," said Mr. McCargo. "Trust is earned, not given. The
addition of these new programs to the company's existing scope of work
and relationship with the DLA is evidence of the company's impressive
history of delivering results for its clients."
Based in Alexandria, VA, ARServices is a management and technology
consulting provider of choice to the United States civilian agencies,
military, and industry teaming partners. Government agencies, military
organizations, and leading prime contractors rely on ARServices to
provide mission-critical services in the areas of integrated logistics,
business transformation and human capital management, and research and
development support services.
An award-winning SBA-Certified 8(a) contractor, ARServices is recognized
for its ability to deliver the flexibility, agility, and responsiveness
of a small company with the results of the largest government
contracting companies. It's for this reason that federal agencies and
teaming partners call on ARServices to help them address complex
challenges, thereby allowing for the successful provision of constituent
service and mission achievement.
