July 20, 2016 - MCR Global, LLC, a premier provider of integrated program management services to the U.S. government and Allied nations, has been awarded a four-year contract for approximately $8.1 million by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to provide key program management and technical support services to Supreme Allied Command Transformation (ACT) and Allied Command Operations (ACO).
MCR will be responsible for providing a program management capability for NATO’s Automated Information System and General Purpose Communications Systems. The capabilities include requirements management, engineering evaluation, change management, business change management and overall program governance.
The four-year contract includes a two-year base period and a two-year option. The support will be provided on-site at ACT Headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, and ACO Headquarters in Mons, Belgium.
NATO’s two strategic commands, ACT and ACO, are working jointly to develop, manage, and field a portfolio of projects under its Bi-Strategic Commands Automated Information System (BI-SC AIS) program. The principal aim of the program management office is to improve the quality, timelines, cost-effectiveness and interoperability of AIS services to the commands. Those services include IT modernization; the integration of logistics functions; the integration of Intel services; the provision of information assurance and cyber defense; data, voice and streaming media services; deployable communication; and a variety of command and control system integration critical to NATO missions.“MCR is extremely proud of our work supporting NATO’s vital missions. For more than two decades, MCR has provided our unique program management, technical analysis, and enterprise transformation expertise to NATO Agencies. We are delighted to expand that support to NATO’s two strategic commands and look forward to assisting the alliance in delivering the next generation of AIS to our forces on-time, within cost, and with the promised capability,” said MCR Global’s President, Paul R.
