What I was asked to say…What I was asked to say…
“A discussion of the SSDD mission, organization and current and future activities, along with any procurement information that is allowable and any prognostications regarding budgets, etc would be considered most helpful. Also any information that Mr Tackett feels is pertinent to the discussion would be appreciated.”

What has changed since I spoke to you in 2009…
What has changed since I spoke to you in 2009…
• Gov/DoD efficiencies initiatives
• SSDD expansion into collocated MDA support in Colorado Springs, CO

Gov/DoD Efficiencies InitiativesGov/DoD Efficiencies Initiatives
• Reduce Senior Leader positions by 150 in next two years – Army appears to be able to manage through vacancies – SSDD open CFD ST position is on hold and at risk
• Pay freeze for government employees – Impacts ability to compete with industry in hiring talent – Has demoralized workforce
• FY11 Continuing Resolution Authority (CRA) – Impacts S&T and reimbursable customer funding
• Elimination of Congressional Plus-ups – Less of an impact on AMRDEC than other labs
• New Army S&T Leadership – Dr. Freeman has a new vision and new ideas about S&T

Some Considerations
SSDD is a reimbursable organization, operating with about $200M annual budget, so… Whose money will be funding your idea?
SSDD is a family of 200 government and 600 contractor employees, so… What is your strategy to marry into the family?
SSDD depends heavily on AMCOM Express, so… How do you suggest that we transact business?
Do you see us as a partner, or as a competitor??
