In support of ongoing needs at Coast Guard Personnel Service Center (PSC) in Arlington, Virginia, Harkcon will continue to provide expert consultation as well as project management, analytical, administrative, and communications support as the Coast Guard transitions Personnel Service & Support Units (PSSU’s) to Personnel Service Departments within the emerging Base Command construct. Subsequently, Harkcon will support PSC with myriad services that will facilitate PSC in capitalizing on best practices to produce an organization construct and business processes which will provide the workforce with centralized mission-support personnel services through cost-effective and efficient service-lines.
Harkcon was hired by the Coast Guard’s Office of Information Management (CG-61) to review and research Privacy Compliance Documentation and to ensure compliance, accuracy, and attention to detail while communicating the latest developments regarding privacy legislation, rules, regulations, and policy.

The Coast Guard’s Office of International Affairs (DCO-I-1) has contracted with Harkcon to analyze the manpower requirements necessary to meet its mission of providing advice, information and assistance to the Commandant on strategies, foreign policy matters, and the general impact of Coast Guard programs and operations on international affairs.

In addition to the above prime contracts, Harkcon will contribute to the development of a Watch Qualification System (WQS) for five positions on the Legend class Maritime Security Cutter (WMSL) fleet with Entereza, Inc.
