BearingPoint Wins Navy Recruiting Command Business Process Improvement Contract Valued Up to $12.3 Million

BearingPoint, Inc. (NYSE:BE), one of the world’s largest management and technology consulting firms, today announced it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement to support the U.S. Navy’s Recruiting Command with business improvement methodology and operations support. BearingPoint's contract is for one year with two annual options, and has a three-year ceiling of $12.3 million.

The Navy Recruiting Command, also referred to as Commander, Navy Recruiting Command (CNRC), leads the Navy’s recruitment efforts to find the highest quality men and women from the United States’ diverse population. CNRC has a mission to fill the U.S. Navy’s ranks while using best business practices and maintaining an effective, motivated and integrated active and reserve recruiting force. The command employs approximately 7,000 civilian and military personnel.

BearingPoint will provide a wide array of services under the contract, including:

  • Process-based cost modeling to determine the costs of recruiting enlisted and officers in the active and reserve forces;
  • Lean Six Sigma, a business improvement methodology that is being widely-deployed throughout many Department of Defense Organizations;
  • Creation and implementation of a “balanced scorecard,” a strategic planning and management tool; and
  • Operational Support

The initial contract work will be performed at CNRC headquarters in Millington, Tenn., with potential work opportunity at several other locations such as Washington D.C., Pensacola, Fla., and Great Lakes, Ill.

“Helping agencies and commands drive through process improvements to better meet their missions is a core strength BearingPoint brings to market,” said Beth Smith, senior vice president of BearingPoint’s Navy sector. “With a robust team of experts in Lean and Six Sigma, as well as a portfolio of similar work we’ve done across other DoD commands, BearingPoint is excited to have the opportunity to provide services to the Navy Recruiting Command.”
