WASHINGTON TALK: MILITARY CONSULTANTS; A Thriving Industry to Do the Pentagon's Work

By Richard Halloran ..July 14, 1987

Largely because of President Reagan's six-year military buildup, a mini-defense industry is thriving along the beltway that circles Washington like a concrete moat.

The companies involved call themselves a ''professional and technical services industry.'' Their admirers refer to them as ''think tanks.'' But to a few people, they are ''beltway bandits,'' because they get jobs that some think the Government, notably the Pentagon, should do itself.

Whatever the label, almost 100 companies here are producing ideas, research leading to policy decisions, solutions to management, logistics or personnel problems, ways to adapt high technology to weapons, and analyses of strategy in national security and arms control. They Don't Make Anything

Few actually make things. Rather, they have ridden in on a tidal wave of computer science and information systems, and that is reflected in the company names sprinkled around the capital, in northern Virginia and out into the Maryland suburbs.

Among the companies that won Pentagon contracts worth more than $50 million last year are Science Applications International, the Computer Sciences Corporation and the System Development Corporation. Companies with contracts worth $1 million to $5 million include Electromagnetic Technology, the Space Applications Corporation, Scope Inc. and the Dynamac Corporation.

Some of these companies compete with the research divisions of the giant military contractors like General Dynamics and General Electric, But executives of the professional services industry say their companies are far more flexible than those in the conventional industry, where research tends to focus on supporting the hardware the Pentagon buys. #60% of Research Jobbed Out Criticism of this new situation appears to be limited to muttering. ''I don't think you're going to find a broad-based indictment,'' said a Congressional staff aide, ''mainly because the Government helped to create the industry.''

Even so, the Defense Department considers the issue politically sensitive, and no official was willing to talk about why the Pentagon spends so much for outside advice. A spokesman said the issue was too diffuse for any official to have an overview.

Of $33.6 billion the Defense Department spent for research and development last year, $19.8 billion, nearly 60 percent, went to companies outside the Pentagon. The Pentagon's research budget was double that of 1981, just before the Reagan Administration's buildup began, and the outside companies have more than doubled their revenues in that period.

Since 1982, for example, BDM International, one of the larger companies, has nearly tripled its revenues from Government and private contracts to $322 million last year. Earle C. Williams, BDM's chairman, said he expected that expansion to continue, because, even though military spending has leveled off, the Pentagon's research funds are expected to continue rising.

Executives in the industry contend that their firms have succeeded because they can do for the Government what the Government cannot do for itself, or they can at least do it more efficiently. Cutting Down on Bureaucracy

Specifically, they say, they provide talented people with a less bureaucratic working environment. ''A scientist can't do real science over there,'' said Mr. Williams, nodding toward the Pentagon, ''because he's so tied up by bureaucrats.''

In addition, professional services companies say they pay better. Asked to compare BDM salaries with those in the Defense Department, however, Mr. Williams demurred, saying that was ''excruciatingly sensitive information.''

Perhaps this is the point that most bothers the critics. They argue that people gain experience in the Defense Department, then join BDM or another company to do the same work at much higher salaries. The taxpayer, they say, thus pays more for something the Pentagon could do.

But Mr. Williams contended that companies like his operate more economically than the Pentagon because they can move people from one project to another to keep them productive. In the Government, he said, skilled people would sit around waiting for the next assignment.

Among BDM's current projects are several connected with President Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative, the plan to develop a shield against nuclear missiles. Robert B. Buchanan, the company's senior executive for S.D.I., said one project was to design ''smart rocks'' that would destroy nuclear warheads in space by force of impact.

Bruce K. Brown, a retired Air Force lieutenant general, supervises research into mobile launchers for small intercontinental ballistic missiles and the deep underground basing of large missiles, plus analyses of ways for bombers and missiles to strike mobile missiles in the Soviet Union.

In the realm of conventional warfare, Philip A. Karber led a BDM team of 12 political scientists, regional specialists and military analysts assessing the prospective balance of military power should the United States and the Soviet Union agree to reduce medium-range nuclear forces. They concluded that the United States would be better off.

One of BDM's founders, Joseph V. Braddock, said he urged analysts to go to the field with operational commanders so ''they will get an appreciation of the guy who has to fight the tactical battle.'' BDM has designed and will run a highly technical center for training light infantry units at Fort Chaffee, Ark. Entrepreneurial Element

Mr. Braddock joined two other scientists, Bernard J. Dunn and Daniel F. McDonald, in setting up BDM in 1961. But they wanted to be free from managing the business and hired Mr. Williams the next year to run things.

Since then, that atmosphere has pervaded the company. Mr. Williams, an electrical engineer by training, said, ''We provide a place for people who want to be entrepreneurial in spirit but don't want to run their own businesses.''

The entrepreneurial element comes in with what Mr. Williams calls ''individual marketing initiative,'' in which each of the 2,700 people on the professional and technical staff is charged with acquiring new projects. They must get out to sell their technical skills, he said, primarily to the Government.

People at BDM, Mr. Williams said, are competitors. ''We're using their competitive juices to drive people to build bigger empires,'' he said. ''They're not competing with the guy down the hall, they're out winning contracts from other companies.'' Plenty of Vice Presidents

Many contracts are small; BDM has about 800 projects, with an average revenue of $400,000. But the trend is toward larger, multiyear contracts, said Charles R. Wasaff, a senior vice president. Last year, 30 contracts brought in 58 percent of the company's revenue.

To promote ''the marketing mystique,'' Mr. Williams said, BDM has 75 vice presidents, like a bank or an insurance company. The titles are to help get them in a client's door. ''Some are real vice presidents,'' he said with a chuckle, ''and others are vice presidents of convenience.''

Those vice presidents are likely to be busy well into the future, because the professional services companies, whatever their merits, are now firmly entrenched in the nation's military establishment.

The evidence is plain around Tyson's Corner in northern Virginia, where office buildings with state-of-the-art security and computer capacities are under construction to house expanded headquarters for BDM and other professional services companies.

Consolidated Safety Services, Inc. (CSS) history


Brief History

Consolidated Safety Services, Inc. (CSS) was incorporated in 1988 to provide health and safety services to the public and private sectors. CSS rapidly expanded its services to include scientific program support in the physical and life sciences. For the last 20 years, CSS has been recognized as the nation's leading provider of motor carrier safety ratings for ground transportation systems.

Dynamac Corporation was established in 1970 to provide environmental, safety and health services primarily to the federal sector. It quickly added scientific research and development (R&D) and technology testing to its core services. Since 1995, Dynamac has been the leading provider of life science payload processing services for space transportation systems.

The CSS enterprise was created by the acquisition of Dynamac Corporation in May 2010. The acquisition immediately produced remarkable synergy enabling CSS to offer truly comprehensive environmental, safety & health services and robust scientific support capabilities. The acquisition allowed us to adopt the best of our combined business practices, IT systems, and analytical tools, and we seamlessly share our combined staff resources to meet the evolving needs of our many customers.

In 2005 an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) was established. Today the CSS enterprise is 100% employee owned.

1994 (August 4) - NYTimes : "U.S Intends to Raise Science and Technology Spending, Gore Says"



By Philip J. Hilts

The Clinton Administration announced its intention today to increase the nation's overall spending on science and technology research to a level equivalent to those of Japan and Germany.

At a news briefing, Vice President Al Gore presented a report, "Science in the National Interest," that outlines the Administration's commitment to expanding its support and making science and technology "a top priority" in future budgets.

Dr. John H. Gibbons, assistant to the President for science and technology, said the United States Government and industry together were spending 2.6 percent of the gross domestic product on nonmilitary science, and he said the goal was 3 percent, roughly the amount spent in Germany and Japan. But, he said, "we haven't translated that figure into specific programs for the future."

Shifting the Balance

Dr. Gibbons said today's report was more a way of making a commitment to protect science budgets in a period of budget cutting. All agencies must think of the future "only in terms of present dollars, not of increases," he said, adding, "If there is to be more money, it must come from other programs or from increased productivity."

Federal spending on research has increased a few percent a year in recent years, he said, "which is pretty good in times of a tight budget."

Dr. M. R. C. Greenwood, associate director for science at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, said that while no figures had yet been prepared "we do have a plan to increase support."

"Each agency will be asked to come up with proposals," Dr. Greenwood said.

The shift to civilian science from military science promised by President Clinton in the 1992 election campaign has already begun, she said. In 1992, 60 percent of research money went to the military and 40 percent to civilian work, and after the President's first budget, she said, "it's now more like 55 to 45 percent."

If the shift between those two budgets continues, about one-third of the goal of reaching a total national expenditure of 3 percent of domestic product will be reached.

The White House also announced the list of members of a new Committee of Advisers on Science.

The new members are:

  • John A. Young, Hewlett-Packard Company.

  • Norman R. Augustine, Martin Marietta Corporation.

  • Francisco J. Ayala, University of California at Irvine.

  • Murray Gell-Mann, California Institute of Technology.

  • David A. Hamburg, Carnegie Corporation of New York.

Hazardous Substance Data Bank FIle Building Support - SOL N/A POC Velerie M Syed, Contract Specialist

It is the intent of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to negotiate on a sole source basis with the Dynamac Corporation under the authority of FAR 6.302. The Dynamac Corporation was awarded a five-year contract (N01-LM-7-3512) in APril 1997 to provide file building and enhancement services for the NLM's Hazardous Substance Data Bank (HSDB) file. It was anticipated at the time of contract award that there would be 2 face-to-face meetings and one electronic review annually. In Order to meet increased useſ demand for HSDB information, NLM expects to increase the number of updated and peer reviewed HSDB records, Update and peer review of an additional forty-five (45) database records is anticipated. Ihe additional work can be accomplished by upgrading the current contract's previously scheduled 48th meeting of the Scientific Review Panel (SRP48) from an electronic review to a 3-day, face to-face meeting. This enhancement to the previously scheduled meeting will require (1) approximately 1,500 additional labor hours, (2) travel and per diem costs for 16 SRP members to attend the 3-day meeting in Alexandria Virginia, and (3) costs to cover rental of the meeting room for 3 days. Because this activity represents a modification to an already existing contract activity, the National library of Medicine intends to negotiate with the Dynamac Corporation on a sole source basis. The Dynamac Corporation is the best qualified company to perform this work because: 1) they have been conducting HSDB updates and review activities for over 15 years; 2) they are thoroughly familiar with the TOXNET file building system and the HSDB database conventions and procedures; and 3) they have on-site a complete collection of all HSDB sources. Because of the amount of detailed Information about database operations and the length of time required to develop capacities for satisfactory performance, introducing a new contractor at this point in time would add significant additional training time, government coordination, and therefore, cost to the Government. This notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals. However, all proposals received within forty-five days after the date of publication of this synopsis will be considered by the National Library of Medicine.

2002 (Jan 7) - $120M deal sends Md.'s Dynamac into orbit

By Chris Silva – Staff Reporter

A woman-owned science and engineering contractor has won a $120 million contract from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to provide life sciences and environmental support to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The eight-year contract represents the 10th, and largest, award NASA has given Rockville-based Dynamac in the past six years.

"This one is really at the cutting edge of science," says Douglas Britt, Dynamac's project director. "NASA pushes science to its limits ... this is the largest single contract the company has ever had."

The award marks the second consecutive time Dynamac won a contract to provide environmental and life sciences services to NASA. Dynamac's first contract with NASA was valued at $63 million.

Diana MacArthur co-founded Dynamac with her late husband, Donald MacArthur, in 1970. The new NASA contract has her beaming with pride, particularly since the company had to compete against other proposals.

"It's very significant to us, a very profound space science," MacArthur says, adding that Dynamac also has won various grants over the years from NASA, typically worth about $300,000.

As part of the $120 million contract, more than 140 Dynamac scientists, engineers and technicians will provide scientific support to the Kennedy Space Center in 14 areas, including ground and air experiments.

Dynamac (http://www.dynamac.com) specializes in plant sciences and will track the condition of food that is grown on space flights. The company also provides support in areas of medical operations, landscape ecology, microbial contamination and animal research.

In addition, Dynamac and its primary subcontractor, Bionetics, will help establish and operate the Space Experiment Research and Processing Laboratory at the space center. This facility is expected to spearhead biotech projects. Bionetics, based in Newport News, Va., provides Dynamac with physicians and nurses for its programs.

Other agencies that utilize Dynamac's services include the Department of Defense and the Environmental Protection Agency.

In addition to providing support services, Britt says Dynamac is beginning to develop a technology pipeline that could lead to the development of life sciences products. The company has a patent on a plant growth regulator that NASA developed, and expects to grab more patents in the future.

The contract "has encouraged us to expand our work beyond NASA," MacArthur says. "It gives us a very good basis in science to work on other projects."

Dynamac Computer Products, Inc. - from Wikipedia


Dynamac Corporation, out of Denver, Colorado, also known as Dynamac Computer Products Inc., was founded as a Delaware corporation in 1970[30] and offered Mac portable computer systems between 1986[31] and 1991.[32]

Notable products include:

Dynamac[33][34] – was a Macintosh Plus converted into a black metal, 24-pound, portable Mac computer with a 9-inch back-lit amber electroluminescent screen and an optional, external battery pack. Based on an 8MHz 68000 CPU, and with pricing starting at $7,000, the Dynamac became obsolete with the introduction of the Apple Macintosh Portable in 1989.[35] Discontinued.

Dynamac EL[36] – based on the same Macintosh Plus system as the Dynamac, the EL used a black Cycolac plastic enclosure, reducing the weight to 18-pound and dropping the starting price to $6,000. It also became obsolete with the introduction of the Apple Macintosh Portable in 1989.[37] Discontinued.

Dynamac LC Display[38] – converted a Macintosh LC into a 13 ¾-pound portable Mac by attaching a 9.5-inch LCD display with 640-by-480 pixels resolution and 16 shades of grey to a Macintosh LC base system. Adding the optional battery added 2 ½ pound to the system's weight. Pricing started at $1,299 for the display kit, plus the cost of the Macintosh LC. Discontinued.

Dynamac IIsf[39] and IIsf/30[40] – this 11-pound Mac portable was based on converting a Macintosh LC into a leather-cased Mac portable with a built-in 9.5-inch LCD display with 640-by-480 pixels resolution and 16 shades of grey, a touchpad and an internal battery. The solution came either with the original donor Mac’s 68020 CPU (IIsf) starting at a price of $4,995 or an 68030 CPU (IIsf/30) starting at a price of $6,995. Discontinued.

Dynamac <http://bit.ly/1dSXzbI> was the first Mac OS-based computer that was authorized, but not assembled by Apple Computer Inc. Based on a Mac Plus and, later, a Mac SE motherboard, Its purpose-built video board and power supply equipped the Dynamac to drive a bright 2-bit electroluminescent screen in a black case. It was purposely an homage to John Ellenby's earlier GRiD computer, and it inspired the same enthusiasm among Mac users.

Success was instant. Upon seeing a prototype at Macworld Expo Boston in August 1986, Apple solicited Dynamac Inc. to become a Value Added Reseller (VAR) and to demonstrate that Apple could offer an option as attractive as the industry-leading DOS-based Toshiba 3400, which the Dynamac matched in specifications (including weight), but added a graphic user interface.

Within a year, the Dynamac appeared on 3 magazine covers on 3 continents and received far more than its fair share of Macintosh press. For enterprises that required graphics-based computers in the field, it was the only cost-is-no-object option*. They included the US Army, the CIA, Bank of America's Internal Audit Dept., and a Who's Who of prominent Mac users in entertainment, media, etc. Naturally, Steve Jobs didn't think much of it.

The ride was wild and continued, in fits and starts, through mid-1992.


*Primarily due to a $1,000 OEM electroluminescent screen, a fully configured Dynamac could run $10,000, if your dreams included 4 MB of RAM and a 40 MB Hard drive. Heady times indeed.

NewGov is a public utility for collaborating with and, when necessary, guiding politicians. NewGov.US supports crowd-sourced policy development for all US political jurisdictions and issues.

As policies are agreed upon by the national NewGov community, they are "pushed" to the relevant congressional committees by NewGov members who have been certified, by an authoritative 3rd party, as constituents of the committee members.

NewGov.US is certainly the necessary precondition for constituents to exercise real power in the country they own. It also appears to be sufficient to the task.
