When building teams for our business opportunity pursuits, EDC bases the selection of team members on a few basic tenets. Our first tenet is to select teammates that can provide best value to the client, in this case the Navy and Marine Corps. Specifically, we select our team members based on the depth and breadth of skills that are needed to deliver projects in the applicable task areas, and that have a proven record of success providing professional support services to their clients. Our second tenet is to develop a team composed of like-minded businesses committed to high standards, integrity, professionalism, and collaborative success. The third tenet is to build a team that has the experience and knowledge to support the work requirements in an agile and flexible manner.
Applying these tenets to our SeaPort-e teammate selection process, we created Team EDC composed of EDC Consulting as the prime contractor, and IBM Corporation and Herdt Consulting as our core teammates. Collectively, we are able to offer a team that has:
- Experience working with the Navy, Marine Corps, and other DoD Services and Agencies
- A reputation and track record for high-quality work and customer satisfaction
- Strong engineering, technical, and programmatic support competencies and capabilities
- A proven commitment to delivering and retaining qualified personnel
IBM is the world's largest professional services firm with over 380,000 professionals working with clients in both commercial and government organizations. This broad capability allows best practices to be garnered and shared from both perspectives, thereby allowing IBM to always be refining their processes, methodologies, and tools to make sure they are not just conforming to, but leading the industry as it pertains to best practices. IBM also brings an extensive reach-back capability for any specialized skills or resources needed, be they functional or technical subject matter experts across various disciplines. Additionally, IBM spends an unparalleled $5.8 billion a year in research and development, and has continually led the IT industry in U.S. patents over the past decade. The achievements from this investment are directly passed to the customer, not only in their products with breakthrough technologies, but also to their professional services organizations with new processes, tools, and techniques based on industry specific research and development.
