Booz·Allen & Hamilton Inc.
Senior Consultant

Information Technology Client Service Team
Economic and Business Analysis Capability Team
San Diego, California Sep 97 - May 99

Management and technology consultant to commercial, Department of Defense, and regional government clients. Participated in successful client engagements in the areas of:

  • Project Management and Control (Certified PMP)
  • Outsourcing and Privatization
  • Business Process Re-Engineering
  • Life-Cycle Cost Estimating

Led the San Diego Project Management & Control Group, which consisted of 10 specially trained consultants.

Accomplishments included:

Leadership: Led the on-going development and operation of Booz·Allen’s San Diego Project Management and Control Group, consisting of 10 specially trained consultants. Led the Project Management and Control requirements analysis and implementation efforts for units of the Navy’s information technology procurement command, a $2.5 Billion organization.

Software Development: Managed the development of command and control software and operating systems involving dozens of independent developers integrating over 100 products with specially developed, classified applications

From "Navy Goes High Tech", Boston Globe, July 13, 2000:
Microsoft products have a reputation for unexpected breakdowns, including the notorious ''Blue Screen of Death'' crash that forces the user to restart the machine. Such a malfunction left the cruiser USS Yorktown dead in the
water for three hours in 1997, when Windows NT-based engine room computers crashed during a test.

That's why the weapons, navigation, and engineering systems on McFaul and other ships rely on specially designed, highly reliable software, not off-the-shelf products from Microsoft or other vendors. In warfare, said Britton, ''if you get the Blue Screen of Death, it really is the Blue Screen of Death.''

Outsourcing & Privatization: Developed the cost estimate for the OMB Circular A-76 Outsourcing and Privatization Study and public-private competition for the Navy’s Child Development Program in the western U.S. Beat the bid from the best-value contractor by $27.5 million. Participated in all aspects of the process, including writing the Performance Work Statement and designing the Most Efficient Organization.

Business Process Re-Engineering: Co-led the Business Process Reengineering effort for the County of San Diego’s Department of Environmental Health, which resulted in significant savings and improved levels of service.

Cost Estimating: Conducted a life-cycle cost estimate for a commercial aerospace company for a proposed liquid rocket booster to replace the solid rocket booster currently employed by NASA’s Shuttle Transport System. The study was used to determine the feasibility of pursuing such a program in the areas of total cost of ownership, program risk and technology risk.
