MOD Agency wins major US award for its Joint Personnel Administration System for the UK Armed Forces — Press Release

MOD Agency wins major US award for its Joint Personnel Administration System for the UK Armed Forces

The Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA) has won a major award at the prestigious 2011 ‘Human Capital Management in Defence’ (HCMD) awards held in Arlington, Virginia on 16 February.

Beating off strong US competition, SPVA won the main award for its implementation of the Joint Personnel Administration (JPA) System for the United Kingdom’s Armed Forces.

The award recognises the success of the outsourcing relationship within SPVA between the UK Ministry of Defence and HP Enterprise Services that started in November 1997, and included the successful introduction of JPA in 2006. JPA has revolutionised Armed Forces’ pay and personnel administration, bringing together the Royal Navy, Army and RAF onto one system, allowing users to update details themselves and providing one dedicated contact centre for help and support. It also delivered savings to the MOD in excess of £200 million in its first three years of operation

SPVA Chief Executive Kathy Barnes is delighted with the award:

“ I am very proud of what the staff in SPVA have achieved and this is external recognition for everyone in the Agency – MOD Civil Servants, Military Personnel and HP staff and the way we have all adapted and worked together over the last few years. It reflects the success of our partnering relationship with HP and reinforces the value of our internal ‘One Team’ approach to working across different sites and organisations to deliver excellent customer service to our many customers – the UK’s Armed Forces personnel, veterans and their dependents.”

HP Account Executive Paul Couch, said:

“The award highlights the strength of our partnering relationship with the MOD, and our deep knowledge of Armed Forces HR. It reinforces the innovation and experience that HP brings to the table to improve service, generate savings and implement value for money solutions. With SPVA and through JPA, we have demonstrated what can be achieved in the shared services arena and are looking to use this as a foundation for helping the Government to achieve similar benefits in other areas.”

This is the fifth year of the HCMD Awards which have been established to honour, recognise, and promote successful human capital initiatives implemented throughout the Department of Defense and Federal Government. The Awards are also an opportunity to recognise individuals and teams who have made a significant contribution to progressing human capital management.

For the second year in a row, the HCMD Awards received over 35 nominations. “The judges really had their work cut out for them this year,” commented Lisa Ringlen, executive director of the HCMD program. “There were so many strong programs nominated in each category.”

This year’s nominations came from offices and programs from across the US federal government, representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, DISA, the IRS, Dept. of Energy, the National Park Service and the US Postal Service. SPVA was the only non US organisation to be nominated, which makes its achievement all the more remarkable

This success follows two other impressive awards received last year by SPVA and HP from the Shared Services Outsourcing Network. Last year’s success was at the ‘Shared Services Outsourcing Network (SSON) 2010 Industry Awards, in Edinburgh in May. The Agency first won the award for ‘Best Mature Outsourced Services Delivery’ for its management of the UK Forces’ Joint Personnel Administration (JPA) system. It then went on to beat organisations from across Europe, the Middle-East and Africa to win the highest accolade of the night -the ‘Winner of Winners’ award.

HP Earns ISO 9001:2008 Certification for the Navy Marine Corps Intranet — Press Release

HP Earns ISO 9001:2008 Certification for the Navy Marine Corps Intranet

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 19, 2010

HP Enterprise Services today announced that it has received ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management certification for the service delivery components of the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI).

The certification verifies that key processes used to deliver NMCI are continually monitored and improved to support secure communication of mission-critical information. The certification applies to HP organizations and functions responsible for NMCI delivery such as solution development, end-user support as well as network operations and management.

The ISO 9001:2008 standard is a set of quality practices that ensures the use of effective processes that are consistently monitored and continually improved. As the industry standard for quality management systems, ISO 9001:2008 certification requires evaluation by an independent, accredited auditing body. Though not required by the Navy, HP obtained the ISO certification as a result of its commitment to provide more than 700,000 Navy and Marine Corps users quality non-stop access to their intranet.

The certification process required HP to implement an ISO-compliant quality management system that established a systematic approach to managing NMCI processes. BSi Management Systems, the third-party auditor, assessed processes for effectiveness as well as the team’s compliance with the established processes. The assessment focused on solution development, network monitoring, network event management, user request management, hardware installation, documentation and records management, problem prevention and correction with other quality management practices within HP’s NMCI service delivery organizations.

“Our focus on continued process improvement fosters increased consistency and efficiency, which enables the Navy and Marine Corps to have their lines of communications open across the world,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president of U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “Obtaining ISO certification demonstrates HP’s commitment to deliver a high level of service to the Navy and Marine Corps today and in the future.”

HP Delivers Command and Control Capabilities to Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Defense — Press Release

HP Delivers Command and Control Capabilities to Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Defense

PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 14, 2009

HP Enterprise Services today announced it has completed the development and implementation of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Defense’s (BiHMoD) operations and command system, known as BiHOCS, to support military organization and manage civil emergency response priorities.

The new system will enable the ministry to coordinate emergency and peace support operations by identifying, tracking and managing military resources.

The new Operations Center for Command and Control was funded by the U.S. State Department’s Foreign Military Financing account, which is intended to promote U.S. national security. The account provides grants for the acquisition of U.S. defense equipment, services as well as training to enable allies to improve their defense capabilities while fostering closer military relationships between the United States and recipient nations.

BiHOCS was part of a two-phase project under the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency contract vehicle, ENCORE. As part of the contract, HP was responsible for the design, preparation, deployment, implementation, integration and sustainment of the operation and command system. During the implementation stage of BiHOCS, HP worked to deliver the network, collaboration applications, supporting infrastructure, end-user equipment and administrator trainings needed to deploy a successful center.

“The Operational Control System provides BiHMoD with the tools needed to effectively manage critical operations during emergency situations,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president of U.S. Public Sector for HP Enterprise Services. “HP is proud to work with the U.S. government to provide Bosnia and Herzegovina with the resources to efficiently manage military functions while subsequently bringing the country closer to its goal of becoming a NATO member.”

The Operational Control System will provide the BiHMoD with a common operating strategy for increased collaboration to manage natural disasters by providing emergency services.

“The Operations Center for Command and Control is the first of its kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina,” said Dr. Selmo Cikotić, minister of defense of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Defense.

The new center provides command and control over units of the armed forces tasked with crisis management, operations management for peace support and monitoring regular daily operations as well as activities within the defense institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

HP Enterprise Services is the recently announced brand name for Electronic Data Systems, LLC.

EADS Led Team Wins New NATO Communications Contract

A team led by EADS and also consisting of Booz Allen, HP and Cisco was awarded a contract to produce a new communication system for the NATO Response Force. The Wall Street Journal writes that this contract is worth about $70 million originally with an option for a further $22 million in support. This Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) based system will be scalable to support different sized headquarters as they are mission configured to support the contingency operation the force is deployed for. Most of the work will be done in England. Eventually this system, the NATO Deployable Communication and Information System, will be used to form the standard for NATO military communications when forces are deployed.
