Coast Guard task management deal goes to DRC

The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded a five-year contract worth more than $3 million to Dynamics Research Corp. to develop a Universal Task List and a Mission Essential Task List Process, the company announced this week.

Under the contract, DRC of Andover, Mass., will perform project management, focused research, and mission analysis with technical and documentation support to the Coast Guard, an agency within the Homeland Security Department.

The Universal Task List will provide a common language for communication and coordination, allowing the Coast Guard to better manage workflow, productivity and risk management, said company officials.

DRC will also develop Mission Essential Task Lists for various Coast Guard commands. The company has performed similar task list management work for the Navy Warfare Development Command.
