Global Combat Support System-Marine Corps (GCSS-MC)
The Global Combat Support System-Marine Corps (GCSS-MC) Combatant Commanders/ Joint Task Force (CC/JTF) was developed by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to respond to the concept of Focused Logistics as articulated in Joint Vision 2010, and reinforced in Joint Vision 2020. Focused logistics is the fusion of logistics information and transportation technologies for rapid crisis response; deployment and sustainment; the ability to track and shift units, equipment and supplies, and delivery of tailored logistical packages directly to the warfighter.
The GCSS-MC system is a highly customized Oracle 11.5.2 environment. GCI employs 43 highly experienced senior Oracle developers and consultants for this contract, including:

The GCSS-MC program involves the physical implementation requirements and discreet performance measures necessary to accomplish enterprise logistics transformation objectives through the maximum use of COTS software, enterprise application integration/middleware software, and Web-portal software. When fully implemented, the GCSS-MC program will facilitate business processes and modernize the information technology required to improve combat effectiveness for 21st-century expeditionary operations.
Defense Enterprise Accounting
and Management System (DEAMS)
DEAMS is the Defense Enterprise Accounting and Management System. The primary objective of DEAMS is to implement modern business processes that have been re-engineered around industry best business practices and the standard Department of Defense (DOD) business rules documented in the Business Enterprise Architecture (BEA).
The DEAMS initiative will support the accounting and financial management functions of the USTRANSCOM, USAF and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS). The initiative is being performed under the direction of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Business Management Modernization Program’s, Finance, Accounting Operations and Financial Management Domain. It is being executed jointly by USTRANSCOM, DFAS and the Air Force with close coordination with the Army and the Navy.
DEAMS will provide a single financial management system shared by all U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) components and all U.S. Air Force (USAF) major commands.
DEAMS will allow for the easy generation of enterprise-wide reports, reduce rework, reduce the requirement for “data calls” and generally elevate financial management capabilities. The program’s most immediate beneficiary is U.S. Transportation Command. DEAMS will become its primary financial system, providing reliable, accurate cost information to set transportation rates and assess the economy and efficiency of USTRANSCOM operations.

Medical Staffing Experience
U.S. Air Force CLASS: Clinical Acquisition for Support Services
CLASS, or the Clinical Acquisition for Support Services contract, is a personal services contract vehicle that provides clinical services at Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) and satellite clinics affiliated with 64 different Air Force bases. The $992 million CLASS program is designed to supplement existing clinical staff with qualified personnel, like physicians and nurses, who will provide direct healthcare services throughout the United States and Guam. Areas covered by the CLASS contract include:
|• Allied Health Services||• Nursing Services|
|• Ancillary Services||• Primary Care Providers|
|• Behavioral Health Services||• Specialty Providers|
|• Dental Services||• Technician Services|
Air Force Medical Service contract vehicles like CLASS are designed to provide an efficient, centralized procurement source, a consistently smooth staffing and management process, and economies of pricing while simultaneously decreasing the administrative and contract management burden for the Air Force.
While GCI is the prime contractor and heads our team for the CLASS contract, GCI has served as subcontractor under similar contracts, including the USAF Medical Services Commodity Council’s Clinical Support Services (CSS) contract, the predecessor contract to CLASS. GCI served as a subcontractor at bases nationwide and currently provides 10 Medical Clerks to perform a variety of administrative support services for the Soldier Readiness Processing (SRP) center and the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) at the Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson, Colorado.
Winning the CLASS contract allows Team GCI to bid on fixed-price task orders to provide physicians and nurses and dental, behavioral, allied and ancillary healthcare specialists and technicians. The ordering period for the CLASS contract is four years.
Occupational Medicine Services Clinic, Hill Air Force Base, Utah
