Project Controls Contractor

Estimator, Project Controls, 2008
KBR, LOGCAP III, FOB Camp Echo, Ad Diwaniyah, Iraq
Sole estimator on a forward operating base (FOB) of international coalition troops at multi-camp headquarters credentialed to provide estimates within Department of Defense (DOD) Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) criteria.  Estimates were scrutinized by both Project Control management, site management, and all stakeholders.  End users ranged from military and civilian contractors to third country service providers to the US Department of State.
Projects included all design, procurement and construction disciplines from site work, foundations, structural, architectural, and utilities to finishing and furnishing.  Stringent DCMA acquisition procedures and remote locations required unique delivery strategies and logistics for each project and FOB.
Estimates were produced for multiple FOB locations.  Security aspects at future base locations prohibited site visits and aerial surveillance was not an option.  Design drawings, experience and visualization were the best tools.
The project performance arena and diverse execution plans required both attentive cooperation with a diverse group of subject matter experts (SMEs) and specific geography adjustments.  Individual project estimates worth millions of dollars were successfully navigated through the entire approval process from FOB to Bagdad headquarters top program team including military and third party advisors.
