LMI prides itself on bringing the best minds to bear on government’s most complex problems. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, that commitment has never been more evident. We stand with our federal clients on the front lines of the COVID-19 response efforts, with some employees going to extraordinary lengths to ensure that clients continue to achieve mission success.

Five Steps Your Organization Needs to Take Before Returning to the Workplace

As many parts of the country prepare to resume onsite operations, ensuring employee safety is imperative. Employers have a longstanding duty to protect employees within their facilities from known health risks. According to OSHA guidelines, this now includes protection from COVID-19 transmission. LMI’s occupational safety experts recommend that organizations take these five steps before returning to onsite operations.

LMI's Plan

LMI’s COVID-19 management team has developed a detailed three-phased plan to help all employees understand what to expect in the coming weeks and months. This plan covers how LMI will protect employees, clients, and industry partners who may use our facilities. LMI shares this plan publicly so that it may help inform other organizations as they design their protocols for resuming onsite operations.

Convening Experts Virtually

LMI is offering a virtual workshop to help federal agencies create pragmatic action plans. Experts in supply chain resilience, global health security, public health, biosecurity, and other fields would collaborate virtually to craft recommendations and offer guidance to decision-makers throughout the response process.

Sustainability and Climate

The pandemic has illustrated the complex interrelationship between our economy and our environment in remarkable ways. As organizations gain an appreciation for how technology allows them to conduct activities differently there is a unique opportunity to make select sustainable and climate risk management practices mainstream.

 Real-Time Supply Chain Analysis

As the U.S. addresses the impact of COVID-19 and the associated surge in demand for vital resources, there is a critical need for federal decision-makers to readily understand the real-time supply chain impacts. LMI is proposing a new approach to data collection and management to provide decision-makers with real-time supply information, overlaid with projections on the spread of COVID-19.

Property Management

Government property entails a variety of assets, from federal office buildings and national parks to critical medical equipment and stockpiled emergency supplies. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of meticulous government property management.

Suppliers Next Steps

While suppliers have tough choices in front of them, there are steps they can take now to navigate this dynamic environment and position themselves to better manage the risks sure to emerge in the weeks ahead.

Pandemic Preparedness and Response

Pandemics, as we've seen with COVID-19, begin suddenly and spread quickly. They have significant impacts on our health, economy, supply chain, and social fabric. Following the H1N1 pandemic in 2010, LMI analyzed the federal response plan and those of 10 states, identifying 18 actions to improve federal, state, and local responses.

As part of LMI’s ongoing support to OUSD(A&S), materiel readiness experts and strategic communications professionals are working closely with the COVID-19 Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF). Ellen Lord, under secretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment, established the task force to coordinate interagency requests for medical resources essential to pandemic response activities. The task force “will coordinate and prioritize execution of authorities, connect supply with demand, and communicate across [the Department of Defense] and with industry,” according to a JATF fact sheet.
