United States Space Force Consulting Support

While the Fiscal Year 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) capped the number of personnel who could be assigned to the Space Force and subordinate organizations at 16,000, there was no cap on the people, processes, tools, and assets required to support the new organization. As the Space Force continues to innovate, develop, prototype, and test new requirements focused on providing freedom of operation in, from, and to the space domain, the need for flexible support facilities and infrastructure remains paramount.

Matrix created a strategic facility plan to provide a time-phased innovation execution framework to support Delta 6’s organizational initiatives and meet its facility and infrastructure needs. This roadmap leveraged all real property tools and investment mechanisms available to support a “build or buy” decision to meet client needs in a timeframe that was acceptable to impacted end users.

Matrix supported Delta 6 through three primary lines of effort:

Program Management. The Matrix Team provided program management support pertaining to facilities to ensure requirements were standardized, optimized based on physical or fiscal constraints, and coordinated internally and externally in a consistent manner. Specific subtasks included:

  • Basing Action Requests — Facilitated the completion of basing action requests for the Cyber Squadrons (CYS), Space Cyber Center (SCC), Combat Training Squadron (CTS), and Space Delta 6 (DEL 6) staff; and
  • Facility Requirements — Collaborated with CYS representatives and others to develop standardized facility requirement documents that will support facility planning efforts (design and construction, lease acquisition, etc.).

Owner’s Representative. Matrix served as the Owner’s Representative for DEL 6 with authority to act on behalf of the project owner on all matters pertaining to construction project efforts, including pre-award design considerations, construction oversight, and post-construction outfitting and commissioning.

Civil Engineering. The Matrix Team completed other tasks as assigned within the scope of the contract. Specific tasks were time-bound with agreed-upon deliverables clearly identified. Examples included:

  • Programming — Developed programming documents, including DD Form 1391 and cost estimates for facility requirements; and
  • Facility Project Support — Consulted on facility projects and developed acquisition documents, including statements of work and independent government cost estimates, as required.
