DELTA awarded contract for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy
Re-bid win continues support for Research Development & Acquisition
Arlington, VA – DELTA Resources Inc. has successfully won a re-bid as the incumbent supporting the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research and Development Acquisition (ASN(RDA)). DELTA will provide support in two areas, program management and financial management.
Under the Program Management tasking DELTA will continue to support and host the Navy Center for Earned Value Management (Navy CEVM) with implementation of strategic initiatives in the area of Earned Value Management (EVM). This tasking will require the review of program management best practices and training initiatives, and to recommend modifications to EVM processes that are in alignment with Navy Strategic Planning efforts. Additional program management tasking includes DELTA’s hosting of the Single Source Pricing Investment Model (SSPIM) supporting the Office of Chief of Naval Operations Programming Division (OPNAV N80) through Program Objective Memorandums (POM) development and Program Reviews. Since 2000, SSPIM has proven valuable in providing quantitative defense of Naval budget tradeoff decisions on a quick turnaround to directly support the warfighter.
The Financial Management aspect supports the Navy CEVM with Navy portfolio program reviews of their EVM systems across the field activities. The reviews provide the ability to monitor program schedule and cost performance, as well as track and make recommendations to improve portfolio acquisition efficiency.
Within the ASN (RDA), the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Management & Budget office provides programmatic oversight and acquisition improvement efforts in the Department of the Navy. The DASN (M&B) office is responsible for implementing EVM policy and guidance and assisting the acquisition workforce in EVM practices that increase the probability of meeting program cost and schedule goals and achieve greater affordability of major weapon system products, services and decisions supporting national and military objectives.
The contract was awarded with a base year and 4 option years for a total possible value of over $12 million.
