MCR Federal, LLC has decades of experience managing multi-disciplinary projects and programs for clients across the federal government. Today, we are a premier professional services provider with a broad range of capabilities and deep domain expertise in a diverse set of mission areas.
For over 15 years MCR has supported the Federal Aviation Administration’s air traffic organization including weather, surveillance, automation, facilities and program integration groups. MCR implemented an ANSI-748 compliant earned value management system (EVMS) for the Surveillance Broadcast System program office which led to the completion of the FAA’s EVMS Assessment Review and GAO’s EVM Best Practices Assessment Review successfully attaining Green ratings for both.
MCR’s program management support to the Air Force Aeronautical Systems Center provides configuration management, technical data management, requirements analysis, and project management for a multitude of defense weapons systems. MCR was the leader in program/schedule integration for both the Global Hawk and C-17 programs by developing the Integrated Master Plans and Schedules supporting critical path analysis.
MCR supports the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in all aspects of programming, planning, budgeting, and execution and strategic enterprise management. MCR was instrumental in success of the first-ever OMB Program Assessment Rating Tool assessment and created first of kind Research and Development (R&D) strategic plan, a pioneering effort linking R&D projects to program execution strategy.
The Marine Corps needed to explore alternate ways of procurement of the Marine Corps combat utility uniform to improve delivery, quality and cost efficiency of their supply chain. MCR developed the business case taking into account relevant command, users and supplier variables to arrive at a set of recommended courses of action.
In support of the Office of Naval Research’s Force Health Protection and Capable Manpower Program future naval capabilities MCR analyzed, reviewed, and facilitated the execution of technology transition agreements; and evaluated readiness of technologies and assessed impacts on the fleet.
MCR supports the development and integration of advanced technologies including guidance, control, sensor, propulsion, airframe, launcher structures and interfaces, embedded computer hardware/software, embedded diagnostics and ancillary equipment into unmanned aircraft systems for the US Army Aviation and Missile Command.
For the Fixed Wing, Army Project Management Office MCR provides engineering support to design of avionics architectures; tracking of all fixed wing (FW) engines to ensure effective/sustainable life-cycle management; and supports verification and validation of system performance for 350 fixed wing aircraft worldwide.
MCR provides systems engineering including configuration change control board support, risk management board support, lessons learned reviews, and engineering expertise in ballistic missile assets to the Rocket Systems Launch Program, Space Development and Test Directorate located at Kirtland AFB, NM.
MCR was the primary point of contact for support equipment (SE), provisioning, configuration steering board, depot activation, and unit compliance inspections for the C-5 aircraft for the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. We provided management and tracking of a range of SE including data rights, computer resources, technical data, and SE for the operational/deployment phases.
MCR supported the development of the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Support and Commercial Derivative Aircraft Program (PMA-207) Integrated Logistics Support Plan. This involved collecting data from the C 130 program office and Lockheed Martin. The results provided NAVAIR a more accurate estimate of ongoing operation and support costs.
MCR provides financial management support to the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center including cost estimating and research; commitment, obligation, and expenditure reconciliation; budget; and financial management. For the Developmental Planning Directorate, MCR created life cycle cost estimates, reviewed trade options for commercial and government hosting, and developed estimates integrating commercial ground with military satellites providing the government with cost effective options for future programs.
Since 2006 MCR has supported the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration with: Business Case Analysis , Independent Cost Estimate, Life Cycle Cost Estimates , Cost Performance Metrics, and Risk Analysis. We recently supported the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) including evaluation of risks and benefits for future decisions in the acquisition process and development of an independent cost estimate using a novel analogy method relating JPSS ground segment costs by comparing technical parameters based on data transmission needs to GOES-R, NPOESS, and the Defense Meteorological Satellite Programs.
