KSJ Corporate Experience

KSJ has gained extensive experience supporting the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) communities with solutions based on industry best practices.  Within DoD, KSJ has supported all of the Military Health System (MHS) program offices, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and the Services.

KSJ has supported the Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic and its customers in multiple key initiatives for the past eight years.  KSJ is currently involved in a number of integrated electronic health record (iEHR) projects for SPAWAR including: providing support to the iEHR Network and Security workgroup.  KSJ is also participating in work related to the DoD/VA Interagency Program Office for SPAWAR, including: leading project management and engineering-related efforts and preparing executive-level and engineering-level solutions and recommendation briefings. These and our other SSC Atlantic efforts include development of risk-adjusted cost estimates, requirements analysis support, technical architecture and engineering support, and examination of technical and cost trade-offs and return on investment.

KSJ provides comprehensive program and project management support for Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) including emergent projects such as Global Combat Support System – Air Force performance monitoring, Defense Logistics Agency Exchange hosting, Rapid Access Computing Environment implementation, and the Web Cloud Services initiative for Air Force and other customers.

KSJ supports the Military Health Systems (MHS) providing lifecycle program management, acquisition and defense business certification support services, comprehensive systems engineering, information assurance, and operations engineering services. KSJ also provides customized, in-depth clinical information systems training services to Electronic Health Record users in military treatment facilities worldwide.  Our in-depth training includes extensive change management and work flow optimization ensuring minimal impact to end users.

KSJ provided program and project management support to the MHS Cyberinfrastructure Services office for more than ten years, supporting the installation and maintenance of a common, standards-based communications and computing infrastructure in support of MHS centrally-managed systems, data centers, and worldwide MHS facilities.

KSJ pioneered the introduction and use of the DoD DBS acquisition guidance for Acquisition Category (ACAT) programs within the MHS. We have provided acquisition management support for MHS acquisition programs since 1996, and began implementing the Business Capability Lifecycle (BCL) model processes in support of the MHS programs with the release of the initial interim acquisition guidance for Defense Business Systems (DBS).  KSJ currently provides BCL and DBS support for all current ACAT IAM programs within the MHS as well as five ACAT III programs under DHIMS oversight.

In addition, KSJ has provided independent life cycle cost assessment services to the VA Office of Information & Technology Office of Enterprise Development.

Quality Assurance Program

KSJ has adopted a proven process to monitor, manage, and maximize quality.  Our quality management process includes the control and surveillance methodologies to insure quality performance and compliance with contract requirements.  Below we identify these principal quality management activities and some of the key tenets that underlie our quality management approach.

 

Principal Quality Management Activities:

  • Quality Management Planning – identifying which quality standards are relevant to the project and determining how they will be satisfied.  Key outputs of the quality planning process include a Quality Management Plan and Quality Metrics (usually a section in KSJ project management plans).
  • Perform Quality Assurance – applying the planned quality activities to ensure each project is following the processes needed to achieve success.
  • Perform Quality Control – monitoring project results to determine whether they comply with the established quality standards, and identifying ways to correct unsatisfactory performance.

 

Underlying Tenets:

  • Customer satisfaction – this entails defining, evaluating, understanding and managing expectations; and requires conformance to requirements and fitness for use.
  • Prevention over inspection – the cost of preventing mistakes is usually less than correcting them after discovery.
  • Management responsibility – although project success requires participation from all project team members, KSJ corporate management has ultimate responsibility to provide the resources needed for success.

 

Our quality management process is based on best practices espoused in the PMBOK®.  KSJ has adopted the PMBOK® approach since it is widely accepted as a best practice guideline by government and industry.  PMBOK® is considered to be compatible with the quality practices of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), with the proprietary approaches recommended by recognized quality management experts (e.g., Deming, Juran, Crosby), and with widely used non-proprietary approaches such as Total Quality Management (TQM), Six Sigma, and Voice of the Customer.  PMBOK® also complies with the quality requirements specified in the DoD 5000 Defense Acquisition Guidebook, to include the following key capabilities:

  • Monitor, measure, analyze, control, and improve processes
  • Reduce product variation
  • Measure/verify product conformity
  • Establish mechanisms for field product performance feedback
  • Implement an effective root-cause analysis and corrective action system

KSJ uses integrated team processes to perform our quality management activities.  Our project teams include the program/project manager, task leads, supporting staff, and corporate subject matter experts when needed.  Frequent in-house and client meetings, as well as independent performance reviews with the client, are integral components of our integrated team process.

Quality management is an integral part of project management.  Its processes interact with each other as well as the other project management functions.  As such, KSJ normally includes quality management as a section in our integrated project management plans.  Quality management is a collaborative process that includes client feedback and sharing of lessons learned.  The fundamental goal is to assure each project satisfies its intended objectives.

Adhering to a strict Quality Management System allows us to deliver the highest quality services while adhering to the set schedule and budget.
