Martek Provides Legal IT Support to DOI, “Finding a Needle in a Hay Stack”
Location: Washington, DC
Services: BUSINESS SUPPORT
As a prime contractor on the OS Administrative Services IDIQ contract, Martek has worked with various offices throughout the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI). Through its engagement with the Office of the Solicitor, Martek has worked to recruit and retain quality employees across multiple labor categories with both simple and complex support requirements. For one particular project, the Division of General Law needed a qualified litigation hold contractor and was having trouble identifying the perfect candidate. They needed a highly skilled professional who could assist with the development of a comprehensive and defensible legal hold and data preservation program for the DOI.
While finding the perfect candidate for any position can be difficult, this position presented its own set of specific challenges. The DOI team needed a professional who was not only an IT professional, but also a practicing lawyer. Making this case even more difficult was the need for someone who didn’t just understand IT—the lawyer needed real-life experience with professional platforms like Axcelerate Legal Hold, eDiscovery automated systems and SharePoint. The DOI turned to Martek for the solution.
Martek knew that this wasn’t just a job for Indeed or Monster. As opposed to using standard or even more specialized job search tools, Martek turned to its network. Martek team members have an expansive network of professional and personal contacts in specific fields. In this case, the team focused on contacts in the legal community. Through this network of relationships—a network Martek continues to expand every day—the team found the perfect candidate for the position.
Martek’s choice was the perfect candidate for the job. The candidate was immediately hired and worked through the contract. The new hire provided legal support and opinions, configured the legal hold software database system, helped with implementation and more. He helped the DOI save valuable time by developing resources required by the system to automate time-consuming processes normally performed by individual attorneys. The systems he helped implement and counsel he provided have helped the DOI continue to run at peak efficiency. The customer was thrilled with the choice, saying his work “exceeded expectations.”
