OLD HARLOW, Essex, 18 May 2005 — Advanced Concept Consulting Ltd, the supplier of Strategic Proposal and Programme Management consulting services, provided proposal management support to the Thales Team for the ARRC C2IS assessment phase where they were selected as the preferred bidder.


ACC would like to thank the Thales Team for the opportunity to support them on this strategically important programme”, says John Grefe, Director and Principal Consultant of ACC.   Our success is measured in winning for our clients and the ARRC C2IS win shows that we have the strategic leadership and experience to bring tangible results to our clients.”


ARRC C2IS will provide the NATO High Readiness Force (Land) HQ with a set of integrated command and control tools which will increase the command’s operational tempo whilst lowering the overall cost to support and sustain the information system. The UK is the framework nation for the HQ ARRC with its headquarters in Rheindahlen, Germany.


The Assessment Phase focuses on the MoD’s successful completion through Main Gate. The Thales team will assist the MoD by selecting the Battle Management System and reducing key technical risks through demonstrations along with a valid whole life cost model and supporting documentation to transition into the Design, Development, Supply & In-Service Support (DDS&IS) phase.
