Synaptitude Partners with NVTC and Member Companies to Assess Processes and Technology at Arlington Cemetery
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 15, 2010 – Vienna, Virginia
Synaptitude announced today that it will work with the Northern Virginia Technology Council and its member companies to conduct a 60-day pro-bono assessment of Arlington National Cemetery’s processes and technology.
The initiative seeks to identify and develop solutions to restore America’s confidence in the integrity of Arlington National Cemetery. Upon the completion of the assessment, NVTC will provide its findings and recommendations to Arlington National Cemetery Executive Director Kathryn Condon and the secretary of the Army.
The 16 members of the NVTC Arlington National Cemetery Task Force are: Booz Allen Hamilton, MITRE, SAIC, Blue Canopy, Consumer Electronics Association, CGI Federal, Corporation for National Research Initiatives, CSC, The George Washington University, HP, Lee Technologies, Salient Federal Solutions, SoltecOne, Synaptitude, Unanet and Vistronix.
“The sixteen members on NVTC’s assessment team bring unparalleled expertise and resources to this project,” said NVTC President and CEO, Bobbie Kilberg. “We appreciate Director Condon’s responsiveness and look forward to working with her and her staff in order to quickly and efficiently assess their processes and technology.”
The Department of the Army accepted NVTC’s pro-bono offer of assistance in the assessment of Arlington’s technology requirements. NVTC’s offer followed a request from Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), who was looking for a solution to the record-keeping problems at the cemetery.
“It is gratifying to see this process moving forward with specific, common sense steps,” Warner said. “I appreciate the willingness of Army and Arlington National Cemetery officials to continue working in close partnership with these NVTC member companies. Fixing the problems at Arlington has to be everyone’s priority, and I am pleased to see this strong partnership move forward.”
