Concurrent Technologies Corporation and RMC Working to Help USMC Fulfill its Energy Resilience Program

Johnstown, PA, June 2, 2023 – Risk Mitigation Consulting (RMC) has awarded Concurrent
Technologies Corporation (CTC) a $4.5 million subcontract to support the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Energy Resilience Program as part of a $9.3 million Task Order. This subcontract is part of the PP&O – MCICOM Energy Resilience Program to provide energy resilience planning and project development support for United States Marine Corps (USMC) installations.

Military installations must be able to sustain critical missions during commercial energy interruptions. This work will advance the USMC ability to achieve its energy resilience and federal sustainability goals.

“We are excited to help the USMC with their mission assurance/resiliency efforts, which align with CTC’s priority to help the entire Department of Defense safeguard its mission-essential functions in the face of energy disruptions,” said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., CTC President and CEO.

In this contract, CTC will focus on establishing an overall Energy Resiliency Program Guide, developing Installation Resilience Roadmaps (IRRs), incorporating data from relevant documents, and developing customized energy projects aligned with installation-specific IRRs.

“One of the really valuable aspects of this project is that it brings together two government stakeholders, Plans, Policies and Operations and Marine Corps Installation Command, with unique capabilities to work toward a common goal,” said Susan Van Scoyoc, CTC Executive Director, Energy, Resilience & Sustainability. “RMC is the lead contractor for the USMC mission assurance program, and CTC is the prime contractor supporting MCICOM’s Publics Works team where we are focused on the energy and utility infrastructure element for resilience. Together we are developing a mission-driven set of priorities for energy resilience at USMC bases.”

CTC and RMC have collaborated for several years as strategic partners in energy resilience efforts.

“RMC is excited to continue our long-standing relationship with CTC through the Energy
Resilience Task Order award. CTC brings a wealth of Marine Corps installation energy knowledge to this project,” said Erin Breen, RMC Vice President Critical Infrastructure & Analysis. “This work identifies risk and provides solutions to improve Marine Corps energy infrastructure. It aligns with RMC’s mission of Assuring Tomorrow and assists Marine Corps installations as they continue to evolve in energy resilience and security.”

An RMC Perspective from CEO Vincent Kuchar

ARLINGTON, Va., December. 7, 2022 – RMC Perspective: The Navy needs more capacity to secure America’s interests in the Pacific

Yesterday, I was fortunate to join an event at the Navy League of the United States on America’s Future Fleet.  Headlined by the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), the event was a dialogue about what the Navy needs to do to equip the future force, accelerate AI innovation, and ensure supply-chain resilience.

I want to thank Admiral (Ret) James Foggo and the Center for Maritime Strategy for the invitation to engage with the Navy’s senior leadership. It was an exceptional event.

Here are some of my takeaways from what I hope will be remembered as a historic day:

100 years prior to yesterday’s event, on December 6, 1922, the US Navy issued General Order 94 which reorganized the Navy and formed the United States Fleet with the Battle Fleet focused on the Pacific. This order truly acknowledged the Japanese threat in the Pacific.

100 years later, will December 6, 2022 be a day in history that set the conditions for the US Navy to ensure its global success for decades to come? Will shifting sands make securing our oceans a priority?

The answer depends on who wins the inter-Service budget wars.

Admiral Gilday, the current CNO, challenged our policy makers to make a budgetary shift from the Middle East to the Pacific.  President Biden’s National Defense Strategy (NDS) names China the “pacing challenge” for the DoD and focuses heavily on “integrated deterrence.”  From the CNO’s perspective, the US Navy has not been a focus for the last two decades. With seven combat deployments and roughly 3.5 years between Iraq and Afghanistan, I agree that our Nation’s focus was not on the Navy and instead on the sands in the Middle East.

According to Brown University’s Costs of War Project the U.S. Government spent $2.2 trillion dollars to finance the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. If you compare that figure to the cost of a new $15 billion dollar Columbia-class submarine, or even 12 of them for that matter (estimated cost well over $110 billion), submarines seem like a drop in the bucket.

We need to set the conditions for the DoD to win the fight in the Pacific and America needs to start by getting the Navy the capacity it needs. It’s time to pay attention to the shifting sands and prioritize securing our interests in the Pacific.

The Navy needs to expand its capacity through more ships and build the infrastructure to support that capacity. RMC stands ready to ensure that the infrastructure will be resilient and secure. Our Mission Assurance and Industrial Cybersecurity teams do this today and we will continue to do it as the Navy prepares to meet the “pacing challenge” through “integrated deterrence.”
