Ability to proactively formulate and execute strategies for successful contract performance and business growth.

Ability to track technical progress and milestones, and report status.

Excellent communication skills and ability to demonstrate this with customers, staff, subcontractors and company management.

Ability to engage in discussions across all technical areas covered by the contract in order to understand the mission and support the best approach to satisfying customer requirements; including: software development processes, systems engineering; cyber; IT and cloud environments; web collaboration; and ISR sensor data.

Experience coordinating the preparation and delivery of high quality, fully compliant contract deliverables in accordance with required due dates; as well as coordinating the execution of all administrative functions required by the contract such as contracting, subcontracting, purchasing, security, safety, and related areas.
