Atlas supports activities in all seven regions across the country: Northeast (Zone 1), National Capital (Zone 2), Mid-Atlantic (Zone 3), Gulf Coast (Zone 4), Midwest (Zone 5), Southwest (Zone 6), and Northwest (Zone 7).
Since we have a small team, this is a simple and uncomplicated process. Over the years, we have mutually established workable lines of communications and trouble-shooting protocols. Our team partner is a large, successful employee-owned and a mature Navy, as well as DoD support contractor. Our subcontracting agreements have the flexibility to describe the efficient flow-down of requirements at the task order level, inclusive of performance criteria and incentives. Unless otherwise directed by the customer, any deliverables prepared by the subcontractor will be subjected to the same Quality Assurance scrutiny as our own deliverables. Incentives and performance criteria will be common for both prime and subcontractor, so the customer gets product assurance in a seamless manner.
ATLAS believes the key to responsiveness and cooperation is communication. Because most engineering programs are dynamic in nature, changes in goals, approaches, resources, or governing conditions are the rule rather than the exception. To minimize negative impact on work-in-progress, we endeavor to meet at least weekly with our customers via working group meetings or other appropriate forums to ensure constant and complete communications. By performing our work in tandem with the customer, each is assured that the appropriate work is being accomplished the right way the first time, and that changes are being identified and managed as they occur. Our best guarantee of customer responsiveness and cooperation is a quality feedback loop, which enables the communication and cooperation process. Providing technical support services is ATLAS’s core capability. Customer satisfaction is our currency and the way of life for the entire ATLAS organization, from the junior level to the President.
ATLAS’s track record of no cost overruns and no schedule or deliverable timeline modifications (with the exception of those occurring at the government’s direction) is indicative of our careful, conscientious management controls, and is enviable within the industry. Two key factors ensure that our response to solving problems is both quick and flexible: (1) Our Program Managers are accessible to all customers, subcontractors, and employees, and they are vested with full decision-making authority; and (2) Problem identification and resolution is a priority of every task. A primary topic of weekly management and staff meetings is to keep both management and the technical team abreast of potential problems. If additional management input and/or technical expertise is required, additional company resources are made readily available. Problems are resolved quickly when there is adequate insight into project status and the proper authority and additional resources are readily available. Corrective action is defined, initiated, and implemented based upon data collected during the task monitoring effort. Corrective action consists of any of the following steps, as deemed necessary: Define tasks and clarify responsibilities—unclear task definitions can contribute to poor personnel performance, missed milestones, and redundancy. When costs exceed planned profiles, methods such as clarification of responsibilities are employed to ensure timely task completion within budget requirements. Train Personnel—personnel may need additional training to complete their work effectively, learn new techniques and technology, and broaden skills. Reassign personnel or reallocate resources—reassignment of personnel may be necessary if a task, and the personnel assigned to complete it, are poorly matched. Reallocation of resources may be necessary to ensure timely task completion. Ensure schedules are maintained, reviewed, and understood—as a tool, schedules are critical to ensure timely completion of tasks and that impacts of incorporated changes are fully considered, understood, and minimize and that progress is reported. Utilizing project monitoring tools and methods in conjunction with these corrective actions, ATLAS’s Program Managers and Task Leaders can identify and correct problems and deficiencies relative to meeting contract performance requirements. This process is iterative and on-going. We continuously monitor task performance; following it with an implementation of a corrective action if a trend of improvement is rapidly demonstrated. It cannot be emphasized enough that ATLAS is dedicated to rapid problem resolution if and when it occurs during the course of contract performance. Our goal is to provide superior support services. In any instance when our efforts go awry, we accept the responsibility for the problem and take any and all necessary actions to solve it. Quality products and customer satisfaction are our number one goal.
