Project Manager /

Patrice Williams

Dumfries, VA

The Project Manager will assist the MPF and MPF(F) programs by serving as the MPF Transition Planner and Transition Liaison Officer to Marine Corps and Department of the Navy commands and agencies.  In this capacity, the Project Manager will:
Serve as the overall Manager of the government/contractor team in the development of MPF-to-MPF(F) transition strategy and supporting policy and procedure..  Coordinate with HQMC CD&I, PP&O, P&R, I&L, OPNAV N85, BIC, and MARFORs to ensure transition plans accurately reflect the needs of all partners.
Develop a POA&M for the transition strategy and develop manpower and SME requirements for an expanded transition team. Support development of a Marine Corps MPF(F) RDT&E campaign plan.
Research relevant Seabasing-  and MPF(F)-related publications and literature to ensure transition plans accurately reflect prevailing Marine Corps concepts.
Research relevant strategic documents and publications to ensure transition plans continue to fill current required pre-positioning capability levels to the maximum extent possible throughout the transition. Provide briefings and informational products to Navy and Marine Corps senior leadership and other interested parties.  Attend meetings, briefings, and other activities at DC, I&L, DC, PP&O and DC, CD&I in order to maintain awareness/understanding of Marine Corps objectives, requirements, and concepts; as well as status of other programs/concepts that support pre-positioning and Seabasing. Conduct and coordinate report writing and perform other duties as directed by the MPF government Transition Team Co-chairs.

The scope of this effort is to develop a transition plan in support of the Marine Corps' transition from MPF to MPF(F).  The MPF(F) program has reached the juncture between conceptual thought and programmatic reality.  The MPF program is approaching investment decisions that must be fully informed by and integrated with the stand-up of MPF(F) so that minimum risk is accepted and accepted risk is articulated and mitigated during the transition from one pre-positioning program to another.  The requirement exists to prepare policies, plans, and procedures for transitioning Marine Corps propositioned equipment from the legacy program to MPF (F), for the programming of the acquisition/procurement of equipment required in support of future pre-positioning concepts, for the transition of selected legacy ships to MPF(F), and for the transition from legacy to future across a broad array of concepts of operations such as  care-in-store maintenance, offload preparation, maneuver and sustainment of operational units, and the reconstitution, redeployment, and regeneration of propositioned supplies and equipment.  Given the significant operational enhancements that will be enabled by MPF(F) hull forms and the need to make the right investments at the right time within the legacy program there is an immediate need to establish a transition planning cell that will initiate the development of detailed policies and procedures across all transition lines of operation.  The transition planner also serves as a liaison for transition issues between the Deputy Commandants for Combat Development and Integration; Plans, Policies, and Operations; Programs and Resources; and Installations and Logistics for MPF(F) transition planning, and will interface routinely with the Chief of Naval Operations staff (OPNAV).
