ACT I provides expert technical assistance to the U.S. government on high profile, complex ACAT I programs across the full acquisition lifecycle. The foundation of our service model is to develop a comprehensive, integrated plan outlining every aspect and activity of the acquisition process to achieve a balance across all program goals. We will:
- Develop and optimize acquisition processes across strategy, planning, source selection, contract negotiation, administration, training, and closeout.
- Produce efficient, credible, consistent, and innovative acquisition processes and documentation that incorporates lessons learned in real-time to ensure compliance and prevent and defend protests.
- Advise on detailed sources selection and provide mentoring and technical support, including:
- Acquisition planning and documentation
- Statement of Work (SOW) and Statement of Objectives (SOO) development and review
- Sources sought preparation and advice
- RFP, SOW, and PWS development support
- Identification of program and technical risk and cost drivers
- Criteria for evaluation and proposal evaluation discriminators
- Provide senior-level contract technical and management oversight, evaluation, and compliance verification.

USAF Space & Missile Systems Center (SMC)
ACT I has a long history providing acquisition strategy support to SMC. Our most recent support to SMC’s Space Superiority Systems Directorate (SMC/SY) includes strategy and architecture engineering assistance in the program’s overall strategy and architectures and identifying performance trade-offs at the space control portfolio level. Earlier service included providing requirements analysis and tradeoff studies; technology studies and insertion; acquisition planning and execution; source selection planning, training and execution; and maintenance support assessments to System Program Directors (SPDs).
National Reconnaissance Office (NRO)
For the NRO, ACT I defined the source selection tenets for terrestrial system recapitalization evaluation; developed supporting concepts for several next generation classified efforts; assessed strategic space requirements documents; and analyzed documentation for application to program baselines, systems integration, and program lifecycle impacts and consideration at strategic, tactical, and operational levels.
