Acquisition and Program Management
Serco provides critical advice to assist our clients to efficiently manage the acquisition of assets in compliance with government rules while achieving their transformational objectives. We have worked with all of the services within the Department of Defense (DoD), Federal civilian agencies, and the Intelligence Community to ensure that they get value for taxpayer dollars wisely and meet performance standards. We are a leader in support of procurement, production management, and integration engineering for maritime customers, having supported every significant new surface vessel class for the U.S. Navy in the past four decades and several major new ships for the Royal Canadian Navy.
In program management, Serco has demonstrated surge capability to stand up teams quickly to support and execute defense programs integrating multiple engineering and planning disciplines and fielding sizeable teams globally. Responsiveness and flexibility are the hallmarks of our work in base security, disaster relief, and force sustainment.
Maritime Acquisition Expertise
The U.S. Navy is in a period of accelerated adaptation and innovation to maintain American fleet superiority in a time of rising great power competition. Our customers must anticipate and respond to the next generation of weapons, including unmanned and autonomous surface and submersibles, hypersonic missiles, cyberwarfare, and other emerging threats and opportunities.
Serco offers our customers a unique depth of expertise in developing the strategy for successful procurement and taking it through the budget, bidding, and award cycle. As a vendor-neutral services company with a signature agile engineering approach, we help our customers rapidly adapt to changes in the threat, technology, and funding environment in support of mission objectives.
We continue to support our customers through the process of contracting, integration, delivery, testing, and training for new vessels, weapons systems, and C5I systems. Our bench strength in naval architecture and naval engineering provides critical I.P. support required for highly complex projects with evolving technology platforms. Our overriding goal is to help meet budget and delivery milestones to advance naval capability and advantage.
Given our long-standing presence in significant naval acquisition commands and over 30 naval ports and shipyards, Serco applies best practices to streamline program management, increase utilization, and advance the modernization of critical maritime assets.
