IO&T Relocation Services for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Location: Southeastern United States
As the federal government faces tightening resources, it is constantly seeking ways to increase efficiencies and to decrease costs. With an eye on healthcare over the last few years, this is especially the case for government medical facilities. The Department of Defense—specifically the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers—is facing this need for efficiencies and cost savings as it expands, renews, and builds medical facilities across the country.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was seeking a partner that could guide it in enhancing its medical facilities and clinics nationwide. The Corps needed assistance from an experienced team of professionals who could manage critical logistics during the expansion and alteration of important medical and research facilities with turn-key project support, while simultaneously allowing the facilities to provide uninterrupted service to patients.
Martek won a series of three task orders under an $81 million IDIQ contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide Initial Outfitting & Transition (IO&T) relocation services to the Corps’ medical and research facilities across the country. Martek Vice President Pjeter Vucinaj, a retired United States Navy Service-Disabled Veteran with more than 28 years of experience as a program manager, analyst, and health systems specialist, provided leadership and oversight to each task order. A Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Mr. Vucinaj brings a unique combination of medical and special operations expertise to his work for Martek, ensuring that critical needs are met with best-in-class strategic and tactical solutions.
Martek’s first task order was to provide IO&T support at Fort Rucker in Alabama. Fort Rucker serves as the headquarters for Army Aviation and houses the U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory (USAARL), which provides medical research support of Army aviation in order to preserve and enhance the health, safety, combat effectiveness, and survivability of the warfighter. In 2011, Martek was integral over a three month period in the relocation of the USAARL Man-Rated Multi-Axis Ride Simulator (MARS) facility from its original building to a larger, modern structure. Martek was responsible for inventorying all the facility’s equipment in advance of the move and coordinating the logistics of moving multiple pieces of heavy machinery each weighing in excess of 10,000 pounds.
In a subsequent task order in 2011 at Fort Stewart in Georgia, Martek played a key logistical role in relocating important infrastructure of three buildings that were set to be demolished to make way for an addition and alteration of the Winn Army Community Hospital, a comprehensive health facility that serves approximately 25,000 service members and their families. As part of the first phase of a two-part project that would result in a 65,000 square foot addition and 1,000 square foot alteration to the hospital, Martek successfully migrated personnel, equipment, and information systems to a temporary facility while work on the project was ongoing. The first phase of the project is scheduled for completion in June 2013 and the entire project is slated for completion in October 2016. The addition will provide offices for physical and occupational therapy, orthopedic outpatient clinic, podiatry outpatient clinic, and behavioral health and social work services.
In a third 2011 task order at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri, Martek was instrumental in the relocation of infrastructure from multiple medical clinics into a single new primary care clinic at the General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital (GLWACH). Martek successfully managed the logistics that consolidated clinics for family practice, pediatrics, internal medicine, immunizations, dermatology, cardiology, community health, laboratory, and pharmacy from multiple locations into a single new 59,000 square foot facility designed to provide more convenient and efficient patient visits.
In each of three IO&T task orders, Martek successfully relocated personnel, equipment, and information systems, while allowing key Army research and medical facilities to function and deliver critical services. Martek’s expertise and efficiency ensured each project was completed on time and on budget.
