“Team Submarine” is an initiative with a very focused mission: “keeping America’s Navy #1 in the world by developing, acquiring, modernizing and maintaining the world’s best Submarines and Undersea Systems.” The program was created by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition (RDA), the Program Executive Officer (PEO) for Submarines and the leadership of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). One of its key aims is to set the “value added standard for acquisition, engineering, business, and maintenance.”
As Team Submarine executes its mission and strives to meet this valued-added standard, it also supports the capability and readiness demands of new and emerging threats and greater operations tempo. Team Submarine must also face the ongoing fiscal challenges of balancing shrinking budgets with rising operation costs. Opportunities for design for affordability (DfA), innovative modernization, rapid technology insertion, streamlined acquisition, quality, financial and cost management, sustainable cost reduction, enterprise and supply chain risk reduction, operations performance improvement and cyber security have become critical to overall operational capability, capacity and deployment. These capabilities provide Team Submarine with the tools and data to support informed decision making—optimizing resource usage and ensuring the team achieves its mission.
With our combination of global and international defense, Department of Defense (DoD), federal and commercial knowledge and experience, Guidehouse LLP is uniquely qualified to support Team Submarine in many of these areas—with industry-leading, award-winning and value-added capabilities.
