Today we are excited to announce that Dominion Consulting is merging with TeraThink Corporation. In TeraThink, we have found a company with common values and direction. A company with whom we see tremendous opportunities for transformative growth.
This is, however, much more than a merger of two like-minded companies. Today’s announcement grew out of a long term working relationship, as both myself and Tim Spadafore have worked with Paul Lombardi, the chief executive officer of TeraThink, for many years. We feel that together, we can grow stronger and serve our clients better.
We are pleased to announce that Dominion Consulting Director Laurence Hart has been named the first Information Coalition Honors Fellow by the Information Coalition. The fellows program recognizes the work of individuals that span multiple functionalities in the information industry. These domains include Records Management, Information Management, Enterprise Content Management, and Information Privacy. Laurence received this notable distinction at The Information Governance Conference 2017, one of the leading conferences for experts in the field of information governance.
“Laurence has been a leader in the Information Governance and Content Management realm for over 20 years. We are proud of his accomplishments, as well as the knowledge and experience that he brings to our clients at Dominion. I couldn’t think of a better person to be named ‘First Fellow’ than Laurence Hart”, said Dominion Consulting President and CEO, Dan Maguire.
Dominion Consulting has been awarded a prime position on the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Shared Services Line of Business (SSLoBS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). An estimated $500 million multi-award BPA, this win is a testament to our team’s 20+ years of continuous delivery and excellence supporting USDA’s mission.
The objective of the SSLoBS BPA is to drive the OCFO’s (Office of the Chief Financial Officer) mission, while providing USDA’s shared service offerings to customers government-wide. The scope of this BPA includes services for Financial Management, Human Resources, Information Technology Services Division, External Systems Development, and Personnel & Pay. These service offerings are designed to eliminate time-consuming, transactional functions and allow agencies to focus on their core mission.
Dominion Consulting is thrilled to announce that for the second time, we made the list of The Washington Post’s 2017 Top Workplaces ranking an impressive 21st out 65 similarly sized companies. The Top Workplace award signifies the best places to work in the Washington D.C. metro area. This award is especially important to us because the winners are selected based off the most important criteria – the employee feedback!
The Washington Post partnered with Workplace Dynamics to provide an independent evaluator of the anonymous employee surveys. The winners were selected based on the highest overall scores from a variety of topics: quality of leadership, direction of the company, pay and benefits, and work-life balance.
Last Thursday, ten of us braved snow squalls and howling winds to attend the (ironically Hawaiian-themed) 2017 SmartCEO Future 50 Awards Gala. Held at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, 2017 marks the third year in a row that Dominion Consulting has won. We all felt excited as the Future 50 award is a prestigious honor for a company of our size.
The Future 50 awards are awarded to companies that “represent the future of the region’s economy and embody the entrepreneurial spirit critical for leadership and success”. Winners are chosen based on a three-year average of employee and revenue growth. Dominion winning three years in a row is a testament to the success we have had in recent years.
In January, Dominion Consulting began a quest to achieve ISO 9001:2015 compliance. The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is a multinational standardizing organization that has published over 21,000 international business standards. The ISO 9001 standard (last updated in 2015, hence the 9001:2015 designation) covers the requirements of developing and implementing a Quality Management System (QMS) within a business.
Organizations that are ISO 9001 compliant can show tangible proof that their products and services are high quality. It also shows that the organization actively monitors those products and services to assure their quality remains high. I served as Dominion’s Quality Manager through this quest. I’m pleased to report that this past week we achieved ISO 9001:2015 compliance certification.
After years of operating as IBC, a DBS Company, we have decided to change our name to Dominion Consulting Inc. After the successful merger of Dominion Business Solutions and IBC, and the sale of our subsidiary EigenX, we felt the time was right to embrace a fresh image that will drive us forward and build a stronger culture and identity. We also believe it is time to move away from using an acronym to a name that is easy to remember and use.
Our new name pays homage to our strong Virginia roots and represents our leadership in the technology and management consulting sector. This change represents our future and emphasizes the strong culture, rich history, and energy we bring to solving our clients’ most complex problems. As Dominion Consulting, we are renewing our dedication to delivering forward-thinking solutions that drive success and build your future.
In two weeks, IBC will be attending the annual AIIM Conference in New Orleans. I’ll be attending along with Jed Carr to check to see what the latest is in content management and information governance. While the city of New Orleans with its unique food and culture (beignets!) would seem like enough of a reason to attend, there are many more important reasons.
Reston, VA – January 12, 2016 – At the end of last year, IBC was awarded a new contract by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to provide complementary financial management services to the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO), Associate Chief Financial Officer for Financial Systems (ACFO-FS). IBC will be providing expert level support for incident management as well as SAP-specific training with the ultimate goal of creating operational improvements and efficiencies within the Financial Management Modernization Initiative (FMMI) environment. The IBC team will deliver superior software development and effective training resources with proven implementation methods including SAP ASAP, Agile, and traditional waterfall programs. Todd Barber, Managing Principal with IBC said, “This award is a testament to the excellent value brought to USDA by the IBC Team over the last few years. We are extremely proud to continue our ongoing support at OCFO and look forward to the further development of their people and systems.”
