program & workforce management
SSAI understands that remaining a leader in the business of science requires that we also excel at the science of business. Our agile management team is adept at managing large, complex programs, as well as small, concentrated efforts, while maintaining fiscal responsibility and a customer and employee focus.
SSAI has a history, since 1977, of success in managing diverse science, engineering, and IT projects within an R&D environment. Our mature infrastructure enables the management of numerous programs—each with unique technical, schedule, and cost requirements—at the same time. Simply put, our tech-smart, highly responsive managers deliver results, earning an average 95% customer rating on performance-based contracts over the past 10 years.
To provide best-value solutions, SSAI makes long-term investments in both technology and people. Our Web-based management tools optimize team performance and reduce costs. Our Task Management System (TMS) offers 24x7, full life-cycle task order management—including creation, approval, budgeting, forecasting, and reporting—in a secure, interactive environment. Internally, our robust Enterprise Architecture System (EAS) streamlines our financial, administrative, and HR functions. Committed to the continual improvement of these processes, SSAI holds ISO-9001:2008 and CMMI Maturity Level 2 and Capability Level 3 certifications.
Tools are only as effective as the people who develop and use them. Building customer and employee relationships based on trust and mutual respect is integral to SSAI’s success. We employ significant science and engineering talent to support ongoing and surge requirements and can quickly engage noted subject matter experts to address specialized concerns. We have a proven record of seamless contract transitions, retaining over 95% of incumbent staff. Colleagues choose to join and remain with SSAI because we value their progressive solutions and innovative spirit. We reward team contributions and honor individual achievement. We also offer a Total Compensation Plan that exceeds the industry average and emphasizes training and career advancement.
Identifying and solving global issues requires managing with a global perspective. From our recruiters, who search worldwide for the best and brightest in mission-critical fields, to our managers, who navigate the complexities of International Trade and Arms Regulation (ITAR), export control, and IT security, SSAI manages with a practical approach and an expansive reach.
