In a pro-bono agreement, the Northern Virginia Technology Council will assess the processes and technology capabilities at Arlington National Cemetery.
The 16-member council, including Booz Allen Hamilton, CSC, HP, MITRE and SAIC, will provide the cemetery with written recommendations after its 60-day study.
The findings will be presented to Arlington National Cemetery Executive Director Kathryn Condon and the secretary of the Army, who accepted NVTC’s offer of help in August.
“The 16 members on NVTC’s assessment team bring unparalleled expertise and resources to this project,” said NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg. “We appreciate director Condon’s responsiveness and look forward to working with her and her staff in order to quickly and efficiently assess their processes and technology.”
Sen. Mark R. Warner, who requested help with record keeping issues at the cemetery, said: “It is gratifying to see this process moving forward with specific, common sense steps. I appreciate the willingness of Army and Arlington National Cemetery officials to continue working in close partnership with these NVTC member companies. Fixing the problems at Arlington has to be everyone’s priority, and I am pleased to see this strong partnership move forward.”
