KSJ delivers a broad range of consulting services designed to optimize our clients’ IT capital planning and investment portfolio results. Our services include, but are not limited to the followingIT management, technical support and consulting services: strategic planning, feasibility/benchmarking studies, business process analysis, business case/analysis of alternatives, cost and schedule modeling (to include function point analysis to estimate the size/scope of software development efforts), life cycle cost/benefit analysis, project/procurement planning, RFP development, vendor proposal evaluation, risk management, budget formulation/execution management, earned value management, monitoring project/system lifecycle activities (development, implementation, and operations/support), and post implementation reviews to evaluate project effectiveness. We provide a full spectrum of services to provide the highest quality and most cost effective solutions to satisfy organizational and operational requirements.
KSJ has experience in developing documentation to support the acquisition process in accordance with applicable regulatory and statutory regulations (e.g. OMB, DoD, GAO, Comptroller, etc) to include: Analysis of Alternatives, Acquisition Strategy Plan, Cost Analysis Requirements Description, Life Cycle Cost Estimate, Life Cycle Benefit Estimate, Economic Analysis, Acquisition Program Baseline, Test Evaluation Management Plan, Clinger Cohen Compliance, and IT 300 Exhibits. KSJ has also prepared Advance Planning Documentation (APD) to obtain Federal Financial Participation for State automated data processing programs under the U.S. Social Security Act to include cost/benefit analyses that fully comply with U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Administration guidelines.
KSJ is an experienced user of software cost estimating tools such as the Quantitative Software Management, Inc. product line (SLIM® or SLIM-ESTIMATE®, SLIM-CONTROL®, SLIM-METRICS®, SLIM-MASTER PLANTM). These tools are used in concert with function point analysis to develop software cost estimates, analyze cost sensitivity, and assess cost risk. Use of these tools provides a systematic, quantitative basis for performance measurement and management oversight of the software development process, which is typically a high risk component in IT acquisition projects.
In today’s dynamic environment, we recognize there are no “silver bullet” solutions: clients have unique requirements that often require tailored solutions and “outside-the-box” ingenuity. We listen to and forge a cooperative relationship with our clients in helping them develop effective solutions to satisfy their information technology needs. Each solution is tailored to the client’s specific needs. Product quality and client satisfaction are top KSJ priorities.
We have earned a highly regarded reputation for excellence as evidenced by consistently high client performance ratings by Dun & Bradstreet. KSJ has a demonstrated record of repeat client business based on our excellent contract performance, and continues to gain new business based on unsolicited recommendations from current clients. In addition, KSJ is financially sound. Dunn & Bradstreet has given KSJ its highest financial rating for a company in our size category.
