At project initiation, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) was organized into two major directorates, one with overall responsibility for the operational mission of the organization and the other with responsibility for the full range of management and administrative support functions. BNL, Inc. was engaged as a management consult-ant in the comprehensive review and assessment of the broad administrative organization encompassing financial management, information technology, facilities management, contracting and procurement, records management, logistics, security, civilian human resources, military administration, and administrative services.
BNL team members participated in the review and assessment of each of these functional areas, offering both technical expertise and extensive experience with Department of the Navy mission, functions, and organizations. In addition, BNL supported implementation planning and execution of major organizational change efforts (transition to NSPS and DCIPS), which included: project management, policy development, risk management, management and workforce training, process evaluation, web-site development, and management in-formation system planning and implementation.
Additionally, BNL identified functional requirements; outlined the functional responsibilities, primary and secondary roles and cross-cutting issues between the support organizations reporting to the Deputy Director for Management and Administration; and recommended organizational alignments in order to maximize efficiencies, enhance management controls, and improve organizational effectiveness.

BNL directed data collection, validation, management and analysis of real-time strategic communications measurement information from multiple data sources. BNL performance ensured technologies were properly assessed, managed, and presented for review decisions. Our engineering support services staff conducted testing and studies of the complex interactions between networked systems. BNL developed a Network Evaluation and Analysis Testing (NEAT) report and metrics that serves as the base-line for network performance for SLC3S communications systems.
