Program Management and Decision Support

Are you able to make decisions and manage programs in an environment of uncertainty and with imperfect information?

CALIBRE develops decision support tools and structural management capabilities for organizations seeking to improve program performance through better management of uncertainty.  Once decisions are made, we partner with the organization to develop and document systematic processes for program management that link quality, schedule, and cost objectives; provide for the establishment of baseline plans; and use managerial cost control and earned value management to track and control program execution.

RESULTS

CALIBRE provides industry-leading support and solutions to solve the most important Program Management and Decision Support requirements.

Management Analysis and Program Assessment
CALIBRE develops and acquires data to evaluate program performance against baseline plans and targets, identifies and reports trends, and isolates potential challenges early in the program lifecycle.  We utilize a combination of traditional and state-of-the-art analytic processes and tools to advise on methods to manage programs and implement program transformation.  Our analysts are versed in a wide range of data collection methods, quantitative and qualitative analytical tools, program management techniques, and an in-depth understanding of the federal budgeting process.

As organizations implement BRAC or BRAC-related requirements, attention to planning, requirements, and resource management is important to reduce risks. Our solutions include planning, analysis and modeling, resource management, scheduling, environmental strategies and compliance, community interactions, strategic communications, and property transfer. Our BRAC-related solutions can be scaled, adapted, and applied to assist any organization wishing to reduce and/or realign their infrastructure and resources.

Realignment, Disposal, and Management of Federal Properties
CALIBRE and our teaming partners have the experience and expertise to support Federal agencies in mission requirements analysis, space utilization and capacity analysis, development of recommended actions that are executable while achieving program objectives, and transfer of real property utilizing applicable and appropriate authorities.

Requirements Modeling
CALIBRE provides expertise in updating and sustaining the Army Range Requirements Model (ARRM). ARRM is an echelon-based, report-driven application that generates installation range requirements for each fiscal year in the Program Objectives Memorandum by collecting, synthesizing, and aggregating Army master data from multiple authoritative data sources and data bases of record. Range requirements generated by ARRM are then used by Commands, the Sustainable Range Program’s Executive Agent, and Headquarters, Department of the Army to make budget decisions across three funding appropriations.

Risk Management
CALIBRE’s risk-based approach to program management, cost, schedule, and technical performance considers effectiveness, efficiency, and constraints due to applicable laws, directives, Executive Orders, policies, standards, and regulations to help organizations achieve their organizational missions. CALIBRE provides managers with training to mitigate risk and apply risk management concepts. We provide technical assistance for improved planning, estimation, and tracking and monitoring techniques, as well as managing technical performance, and allocating resources efficiently.
