JOMIS ACQUISITION SUPPORT
As an integral member of a high-level advisory team providing advice and assistance to the Program Manager, charged with developing overarching strategies for program, acquisition planning and contracting initiatives. This was needed in an environment aimed at transforming the JOMIS PMO from an old-style software acquisition approach to one based on Development Security Operations and Agile frameworks.
In less than two years, ZYGOS assisted with and oftentimes led efforts to re-define the program’s acquisition strategy, to include multiple iterations of review with the acquisition chain of command and the very large operational medicine stakeholder community.
In addition, ZYGOS led efforts to use alternate contractual vehicles for finding solutions to rapid development/prototyping, and deployment challenges. On the forefront of using the most recent guidance from DoD to utilize the Adaptive Acquisition Framework, the ZYGOS team provided approaches and methodologies that other DoD programs can emulate.
Analysis of Alternatives
ZYGOS’ significant efforts have helped JOMIS to become a leader in the application of the guidance and processes available in the Adaptive Acquisition Framework, using them to build significant elements of the new JOMIS acquisition strategy that has been quite favorably received and utilized by the entire operational medicine community.
