Situation: Air Force created the first DoD supply chain management group dedicated to implementing strategic sourcing strategies. There were no models or methods for capturing cost efficiencies or designing the organization to meet expected workload.
Approach: Develop an efficiency model to identify supply chain cost in process, rate, and demand buckets. Then integrate a workload model to ensure the right workforce mix is in place to meet demand throughout the supply chain
Results: An integrated model to capture cost efficiencies resulting from strategic sourcing implementation; and a sourcing organization workload assessment model that allows leadership to staff according to projected workload, rather than process work based on static workforce. Organic tools are now in place to track to $711M cost savings goal.
Approach: Develop unique HHS and CMS-focused curriculum by creating problem cases and scenarios based on existing HHS and CMS policy, GAO decisions, and legal cases and integrate them seamlessly into the formal contracting courses across each level.
Results: A robust, relevant and comprehensive course that improved the new 1102’s knowledge and increased their ability to bring current knowledge on real-world issues to the job site on day 1.
The client stated they knew they didn’t have to worry about our ability to execute on time and on target and to achieve the course objectives because of the outstanding upport they’d received from this team… the same ones who helped stand-up the award-winning VA Acquisition Academy Acquisition Intern Program recognized by the Chief Acquisition Officers Council (CAOC) and leading training groups.
Approach: This was accomplished in two different types of approaches:
Results: GKG instructors provided 220 class days, offering instruction of 13 different courses, delivered in over 90 different locations, over 30 months.

The client acknowledged that the Golden Key Group, and our instructional staff, was an integral part of the team and the overall program success.
Situation:DAU’s existing distance learning course on Business Decisions for Contracting was a compilation of disparate topics that proved dated and failed to engage the learner
Approach: Develop an integrated, scenario-based course that links the topics and engages the learners, as well as making the topics more robust
Results: A comprehensive course that builds on Contracting Level I curriculum and offers the contracting knowledge necessary to process complex procurements.
