Silver Spring, MD (PRWEB) September 12, 2011
Macfadden & Associates, Inc. (Macfadden) announced today the U.S. Coast Guard has awarded it a five-year contract with a total ceiling value of $9.9 million to provide financial management support to the Asset and Logistics Division (ALD) of the Coast Guard’s Command, Contol, Communication, Computer and Information Technology (C4IT) Service Center. Founded in 2009 as part of a modernization initiative to shift toward a functions-based command structure, C4IT standardizes processes and procedures across locations, missions and asset types. Through its contract, Macfadden will provide ALD with financial management, business management, audit, and Real Property support services. These services will be part of a broader C4IT Service Center mission objective to unify Coast Guard Information Technology structure and business practices into a single mission support model for the entire Coast Guard.
As a leading provider of financial management support services at the Coast Guard and on behalf of other government agencies, Macfadden brings a depth of experience and financial management expertise to ALD through this contract award. This contract builds upon services similar in size and scope that Macfadden is performing on behalf of Coast Guard Headquarters and the Coast Guard Finance Center (FINCEN). While the majority of Coast Guard financial support services currently performed by Macfadden is at the Coast Guard’s Chesapeake, VA location, the ALD contract significantly expands Macfadden’s geographic coverage. Macfadden will begin serving additional Coast Guard locations including the Telecommunication and Information Systems Command (TISCOM) located in Alexandria, VA; the Operations System Center (OSC) located in Kearneysville, WV; the C4IT Service Centers located in Norfolk, VA and Oakland, CA; and the Command, Control, Communications Engineering Center (C3CEN) located in Portsmouth, VA.
Serving the Coast Guard continuously since 1997, Macfadden has supported numerous modernization efforts at Coast Guard Headquarters, and FINCEN, including the Coast Guard’s on-going Financial Management Transformation Project.
