Lumark Technologies, Inc.


A Look Back

Lumark Technologies, Inc. (www.lumark.com) began in 1999 delivering consulting services to federal government contractors in the areas of business development, process improvement, proposal development and software development. Lumark's first contract award was in 2001 by Sher Associates, Inc. for software development services to develop and host a collections database tracking system in support of billing collections for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) which continued for 9 years. Lumark over the next several years won several consulting support contracts to include a small prime contract for process improvement support services to the Veterans Affairs (VA) Austin Automation Center. In 2005 Lumark was awarded a subcontract to Perot Systems Government Services (PSGS) in support of the Department of Education (ED) Federal Student Aid (FSA) for Post Implementation Review (PIR) support services. We also deployed a company-wide collaboration capability leveraging Microsoft SharePoint technology to include standing up projects sites for all corporate and client work teams.

In 2007 Lumark landed its first competitive 5-year prime contract award by the Department of Transportation (DoT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to provide programmatic support services to the FAA research and development organization at the William J. Hughes Technical Center (WJHTC) in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. Lumark later that year landed a second competitive 5-year prime contract award by the FAA to provide engineering, program management, and technical support services to the R&D Flight Safety Branch.

Lumark broadened its client base by winning prime contract awards during 2008 through 2010 to include opening its Fairfax Virginia business office and deployment of our 1st generation Private Cloud enabling remote desktop capability across all of Lumark. Two prime contract awards were for the Department of State's Overseas Building Operations (OBO) and the Consular Affairs (CA) Bureau. In 2011 a prime task order award was won supporting the ED FSA Chief Information Office (CIO) providing Program Management and Investment Management support services to the Performance Management and Technology Offices. Throughout this time period Lumark won several prime consulting awards providing business and process improvement support to Federal Government contractors to include a 3-year subcontract supporting the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC).

During 2012 Lumark continued to broaden its customer base by winning two 3-year prime contract awards supporting the Department of Treasury Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for technical and web support services. Also that year a small prime technical study was awarded to support the FAA Aircraft Certification Service (AIR) Technical Program within the Aviation Safety (AVS) line of business. In 2013 Lumark landed a prime 3-year contract award by the Department of State Administration Bureau (A Bureau) to provide Information Technology (IT) Subject Matter Expertise (SME). A major consulting subcontract award to a Federal Government contract in support of the Veterans Affairs was won later that year that included providing business and process improvement support using Agile Software Development and SCRUM methods.

In 2014 Lumark won its first prime Department of Defense (DoD) contract to the U.S. Army Contracting Command – Redstone (ACC-RSA) to conduct an Alternative of Analysis (AoA) study. Later that year Lumark won two 3-year prime contract awards to provide Program Management support services to the ED FSA Technology Office. Lumark closed 2014 with a 5-year prime contract award by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Office of Policy, International Affairs, and Environment (APL) to provide administrative and technical support services. We expanded our cloud environment to add Test and Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) technologies to improve company-wide telephone and remote interoffice communications.

Lumark further expanded in 2015 its support to the ED FSA by a 3-year contract award to support the Technology Office with Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) and administrative support services for the agency's transition from a legacy to new data center provider. During this year we expanded our private cloud infrastructure by adding secure remote/mobile virtual desktops enabling full remote capabilities. This capability remains today very important in our ability to provide high quality professional services to our clients regardless of location and with clear performance visibility and accountability.

In 2016 Lumark expanded its support to the FAA by winning a 5-year prime contract award to provide real estate asset management support services to the Air Logistics Office (ALO). Also during that year we were awarded task order contracts by the FAA to provide Earned Value Management (EVM) and Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Subject Matter Expertise (SME). With the added need for Lumark contractor site capability we opened 7,000 square feet of office space on 1st Street NE at Capital Hill near Union Station in the District of Columbia (DC). This operations site continues to support several clients and provides surge office space capabilities in preparation for new business growth.

2017 landed a 1-year prime contract award to Lumark by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to provide Senior Technical Advisory Support Services (STASS) to help the Program Executive Office (PEO) Defense Health Management Systems (DHMS) with the modernization of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) across the Department of Defense (DoD). Later that year Lumark won a 5-year prime contract award to provide Real Property Program Office Support (RPPOS) services to the FAA Air Logistics Office (ALO). We also opened a 5,600 square foot new Corporate Sales office at the Wharf located at 800 Maine Ave SW, Washington DC. This new space houses our executives and several large conference rooms enabling our clients access to conduct off site meetings/training including a 200+ rooftop room.

2018 followed with a 5-year prime contract award to Lumark by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to provide Senior Technical Strategic Advisory Support Services (STSASS) to help the Program Executive Office (PEO) Defense Health Management Systems (DHMS) with the roll out of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) across the Department of Defense (DoD) to include Cybersecurity and Incident Management support services. Lumark also won a follow-on prime 3-year contract award by the Department of State Administration Bureau (A Bureau) to continue providing Information Technology (IT) Subject Matter Expertise (SME).

To date Lumark supports four major Federal Government Civilian clients (DoT FAA, ED FSA, STATE Dept. and Treasury IRS) and one DoD (DHA) with Consulting, Engineering, Information Technology (IT) and Program Services as well as several Federal Government Contractors with process improvement services.
