Case Studies

CBP Beagle – Salesforce GovCloud Modernization
  • In November 2019, CTEC teamed with the incumbent (CACI) to fulfill a Salesforce Govcloud modernization task order for the Department of Homeland Security’s Border Enforcement Management Systems Directorate (BEMS) to modernizing leading-edge IT applications in support of national security missions that will extend the CBP’s zone of protection beyond the physical borders of the United States
  • At the time, the CBP operated an aging legacy IT system with significant technical debt, which lacked adequate resiliency and disaster recovery abilities - the system was unable to provide innovative technology solutions without a modernization cloud based DevSecOps initiative
  • CTEC won work on the contract by leveraging its past performance maintaining legacy systems to Salesforce GovCloud - a contract requirement considering the critical nature of the CBP’s work to prevent domestic terrorism - and expanded into the full scope of contract work including:
    • Mission Support
    • DevSecOps
    • Cloud Migration 
    • Salesforce Modernization
    • Innovation
    • Reduction of O&M Spend
  • CTEC, as a major sub to CACI, provides Salesforce GovCloud full lifecycle development services for new functionality, capabilities, and systems
  • Once on the contract, CTEC was able to expand the size, scope, and complexity of its role; leveraging its experienced DevSec Ops engineers and AgileDNA+® framework to deliver advanced system architecture, data analytics, digital analytics, SEO optimization, HCD support, business intelligence, and cutting-edge DevSecOps applications development
  • CTEC’s experienced and tested AgileDNA+® framework allowed the Company to maximize automation, innovation, and cost efficiencies, creating cost synergies shared with its customer
  • With a $1B ceiling and significant technical debt of existing system, CBP Beagle represents a large area for growth
OPM RSsDM MS-Dynamics Modernization in MS-Azure Cloud

  • The Company’s work started at the agency 5 years ago with legacy systems maintenance and has since expanded O&M work to 80+ legacy systems
  • CTEC leveraged its advanced digital modernization capabilities developed in its iCyClOpsTM  Innovation Lab to expand the size, scope, and complexity of its contract, creating opportunities for FTE growth and revenue expansion.  The Company now provides cutting-edge MS-Dynamics, MS-Azure, AI/ML including Robotic Process Automations (RPAs) to modernize the OPM’s online annuity payment system, a process representing over $81 Billion in annual transactions 
  • Before its relationship with CTEC, it took the OPM’s retirement systems an average of 3 months to process an application – now CTEC’s unattended robots process 73,000 handwritten and digital applications per year, each within 2-3 days and provide the OPM manipulatable data insights and analytics  directly to their inbox. 
  • CTEC’s human-centered design approach integrated HCD and security validations into the Agile DevSecOps framework which resulted in 100% automated electronic delivery to customers throughout from 2018 to 2021
  • The Company’s success creating OPM’s online retirement application process led to further scope of work in case management. CTEC is now building systems to support online retirement services including a retirement application tracker and the ORA case management system
  • CTEC’s long standing relationship with OPM stakeholders provides a high certainty of winning the OPM RSsDM recompete contract (80% pwin) and enables the Company to lobby for advantageous contract terms.  CTEC has created operational efficiency on this FFP contract, contributing to a sustainable margin improvement
