Decisive Analytics to support US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering


Decisive Analytics has been chosen to support the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering (DASD(SE)) in the US.

The task order to provide major programme support is part of a indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which was awarded by Washington Headquarters Services (WHS).

Decisive Analytics programme manager Lawrence Gresko said: "We are honoured to continue our support to DASD(SE) for future successes, building upon the trusted relationships, technical acumen, and foundation of superior service that are our core."

Valued at $67.3m, the latest order is the first of two that the company has recently won under this IDIQ.

Decisive Analytics will work with the Director, Major Programs Support (D,MPS) of DASD(SE) on all major programmes within the US Department of Defense (DoD) across all services.

"We are honoured to continue our support to DASD(SE) for future successes, building upon the trusted relationships, technical acumen, and foundation of superior service."

The company will provide advice on best engineering practices to help programme managers identify and mitigate risks, shape technical planning and management, and advocate for DoD Component engineering initiatives.

It will also provide insight to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) stakeholders, and identify systemic engineering issues for resolution above the programme level.

Work under the order will be carried out in Arlington, Virginia, US.

Earlier this month, the company was contracted by the US Air Force to develop a real-time target and typing (RTDT) manifold algorithm for the service's Space and Missile Center's Remote Sensing (SMC / RS) Systems Directorate.
