Galvan was called in when a major federal disaster management agency needed help tracking thousands of its disaster-ready assets and response shipments. Our team managed the program that oversaw over fifteen thousand satellite-based GPS devices, which provided messaging and data feeds to the agency’s central inventory system in order to track and monitor the agency’s asset locations.
To meet our client’s needs, Galvan developed new performance metrics, process improvements and specialized reporting that boosted program performance and provided enhanced tracking information to agency leaders, especially during disaster responses.
Best Practices Training
Galvan trained government personnel across the agency’s US regions in inventory control best practices and performed on-site inspections across the US and its territories, as well as managed the central storage facility, including its personnel.
Galvan has advised clients on logistics management ranging from pre-disaster planning and mitigation to supporting the disaster response and recovery process after a disaster event. With our specialized understanding of logistic tracking requirements in pre- and post-disaster environments, Galvan has teamed with the federal government to help boost response performance and increase program efficiencies. Contact us to find out how we can help with your disaster management needs.
Improved Logistics Tracking Strengthens Disaster Management
Disaster asset tracking brings substantial planning and logistics challenges. Events are unscheduled, the scope and damage uncertain. It brings a unique level of uncertainty to a logistics program.
A federal client needed to track and successfully report locations of government assets and supply shipments in “steady state” before a disaster event, during the response and through the recovery.
Galvan managed a satellite-based asset tracking program, from 20,000 tracking devices with hundreds of thousands of monthly position messages to a central logistics system to boosting the data collection and reporting of asset information to Agency leaders. This program covered both Contiguous U.S. (CONUS) and Outside of the Contiguous U.S. (OCONUS) locations.
Galvan, as consistently acknowledged by the client, successfully fused the delivery of position data with specialized reporting and inventory control improvements that strengthened disaster responses over years of performance.
The team developed new program performance metrics providing more transparency to agency leaders. Galvan further advised the client with after-action analyses that provided lessons learned and recommendations for disaster responses. Finally, the team was responsible for readiness training for client personnel.
