Contractor Services

Mercury's services range from broad-based reviews of all facets of an organization's management practices to focused analyses of a single issue or opportunity. Our experience includes assessment of supply-chain and outsourcing alternatives, where appropriate, and focused efforts to improve performance to sustain in-house programs.

Our consultants - who include experts with corporate, utility, law enforcement, federal, state, and city management experience in our practice areas - have undertaken projects for more than 400 private and public-sector clients, including: the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Military Services, and numerous Departments, Agencies, Bureaus, and Administration entities. Our range of experience across all these sectors enables us to identify management and performance best practices and measures outside our clients' typical frames of reference. Moreover, to conduct our work effectively and efficiently, we have developed an array of analytical software tools that put information into the hands of decision-makers. Overall, government organizations can tap Mercury's logistics and fleet research and consulting services and systems to achieve new levels of efficiency, cost-reduction, and regulatory compliance.

Our consultants apply facilitation skills and quality-management processes and techniques (e.g., brainstorming and affinity grouping, force-field analysis, flowcharting and process analysis, meeting management, leading discussion groups), as needed, in conducting their projects. Deming's PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act) cycle is our foundational quality-management model, and we apply such methods as Quality Function Deployment (QFD), Hoshin Planning, and other management and planning tools as appropriate.

In the rapidly changing operational areas that comprise logistics, strategic and business planning are essential for identifying and promulgating policies and programs for tomorrow. As organizational-change consultants, we assist clients with preparation of policies suitable to organizational goals, objectives, culture, and constantly shifting external forces. Strategic planning and policy projects invariably include a due diligence cost study (as-is vs. to-be), best practice(s) assessment, benchmarking (cost, typical policies among organizations), and development of tiered programs and approaches for personnel categories and/or diverse organizational missions.
