Voluminant to Lead Project Management Training at Department of State

  • March 14th, 2019  

    WASHINGTON (March 14, 2019) – Voluminant today announced that the U.S. Department of State has awarded the company a new contract for project management training services.

    Voluminant is an Arlington, Virginia-based technology and management improvement firm that works in the federal and commercial sector.

    Under the terms of the contract, the Voluminant team will design, update and deliver an immersive, week-long project management training program to U.S. State Department Civil Service, Foreign Service, and Foreign Service Nationals through the National Foreign Affairs Training Center (Foreign Service Institute) located in Arlington, Virginia.

    The contract consists of one base year and of up to four option years of which the government can exercise.

    “Whether it means building an embassy or implementing a cloud-centric cybersecurity program, sound project management acumen is vital,” said Christopher Stammer, president and CEO of Voluminant. “We’ve been working with the DOS for a long time now that has provided Voluminant insight to the challenges and limitations facing project and program managers.”

    “This training could conceivably save the federal government significant amounts of money in projects that finish on-time and within budget, in recapturing negotiated damages from contractors, and in providing internal customers and the taxpaying public the products and services they need,” said Stammer.

    Since 2008, the Voluminant team has been delivering a program titled “Managing State Projects” to State Department personnel. Stammer has taken the training lead on many iterations of the class and has presented project management training to more than 1,000 DoS participants in the last five years, alone.

    Voluminant offers project management auditing, advisory, training and augmentation services to both commercial and government organizations. Voluminant offers a non-State Department project management training class titled “Excellence in Applied Project Management” as a part of Voluminant’s pmIMPACT program. Voluminant also offers project management office (PMO) support and provides turn-key project support services to help customers ensure projects are completed on-time, within budget and while meeting identified project requirements.
