Systems Engineering and Conversion to a Continuous Evaluation System for DOE Federal and Contractor Clearance Population

The Challenge: Due to a mandate from the Security Executive Agent, federal agencies were required to enroll their cleared population into a “continuous” evaluation system provided by the federal government. The deadline for 100% enrollment of the federal cleared population by January 1, 2021, created a significant challenge for the Department of Energy (DOE). Our DOE client chose the ODNI CES as their provider and partner for this mandated service and Edgewater was tasked to complete the conversion.

The Solution: Edgewater began working with the ODNI technical team in January 2019 and used a phased approach to establish a plan for the migration of the cleared resources to the new system. This included designing and developing technology solutions to assist in both data and process migration- as well as quality checkpoints to ensure the process went smoothly. This system allowed DOE adjudicative sites to perform “deferred” periodic investigations, thus saving time and money for the department. It supports DOE’s posture in moving toward “continuous vetting” (CV) under the new “Trusted Workforce 2.0” counterintelligence strategy for personnel security across the government.

The Outcome: In November of 2019, DOE reached 100% enrollment, with over 90,000 active clearance holders enrolled. DOE was the first of 29 departments/agencies, who have opted-in to use the ODNI system, to reach 100% enrollment. With the completion of the first phase, Edgewater then moved to un-enrolling clearance holders further increasing compliance with security and clearance mandates. The client was very pleased with the results and requested Edgewater to continue the enrollment process for the life of the contract.

Erickson Living Communities – COVID-19 Tracking System

The Challenge: Erickson Living, a national leader in developing and managing continuing care retirement communities, was looking for a partner to help rapidly develop a system to manage information relating to the impact of COVID-19 across their communities. With the rapid rise of the COVID-19 and the at-risk population within the communities, Erickson Living needed an incident operating platform that would allow their managed communities to easily enter information regarding supplies, staffing levels, and critical enterprise initiatives and for management to review and quickly analyze key data points.

The Solution: Erickson Living Information Technology professionals worked with Edgewater to develop and deploy this application throughout their organization. The COVID-19 reporting application utilizes industry leading technologies to collect, store and report the information including ReactJS, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Amazon QuickSight. Using Amazon's rich data analysis tool QuickSight, Edgewater developed dashboards that display key measures, targets, and trends for tracking.

The Outcome: Users at Erickson Living managed communities are entering required information into the online forms daily and that data is presented to key Erickson Living stakeholders to support decision-making. This system has become a mission- critical tool in Erickson Living’s proactive measures to keep residents and staff safe throughout the pandemic.

Leadership and Collaboration Improve System Performance

The Challenge: Edgewater’s federal client was faced with infrastructure technology that was not meeting business demand, was causing unproductive downtime for users and missed deadlines for critical deliverables. The infrastructure issue also impeded progress of several development/ modernization projects, resulting is missed “go live” schedules. In addition, with many stakeholders and 3rd parties effected, the client was having trouble managing operations to achieve the desired results.

The Solution: The Edgewater team took a leadership position on the program and established a cross-team plan to identify and prioritize the issues and identified the steps to mitigate them. This involved bringing in network management and monitoring tools to monitor performance and provide alerts as well as establish an approach for mitigation. The solution involved setting up a process for communication including regular team reviews to track results and ensure issue resolution.

The Outcome: As the direct result of Edgewater’s leadership the performance of the modernized system quickly began to increase resulting in user satisfaction/acceptance and on-time deliverables. The ongoing usage of monitoring tools and performance alerts allowed the team to proactively address potential issues in a timely manner and significantly reduced system downtime. Data integrations, which previously could take hours, became more efficient as to take minutes, and in some cases only seconds. As a result of Edgewater’s ability to lead/guide the group of contractors from multiple contracts through the successful resolution of the performance issues, the client asked for dedicated Edgewater leadership for the matrixed team.

Edgewater leaders are solution based; they don’t get caught up in who caused the issue.”
