Program Management


Program Management

The F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter Program is considered the single most complex acquisition program in U.S. government history. ACT I successfully negotiated more than $1 billion in savings on the core program for the U.S. Services and International Partners and more than $100 million in customer program savings and cost avoidance for three FMS cases.

We are experts in successfully managing and supporting complex and highly visible DoD ACAT I and DHS Level 1 programs for the U.S. government and our allies MoDs. We work in concert with all our clients to supplement their existing programs and ensure compliance with established technical, cost, schedule, and risk key performance indicators. Our clients receive:

  • Subject matter expertise in DoD and DHS Acquisition Directives.
  • Experience in full program life cycle management from requirements development to research and development, production, testing, delivery, CONOPS, logistics and sustainment, and reporting to senior U.S. government officials (Department Secretaries and Congress) and allied leadership.
  • Contract performance analysis tools for tracking requirements (e.g., in DOORs), technical metrics, dashboards, Integrated Master Scheduling (IMS), Earned Value Management Systems (EVM), and other client-specific requirements and systems.
