New partnership expands NFSTC’s connection to veteran workforce

Global SOF Foundation Corporate Partner logoThe National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC) announced today its partnership with Global SOF Foundation. The move will allow the Largo-based not-for-profit direct access to not only a database of qualified veteran employment candidates, but also a vast network of companies dedicated to the Special Operations Forces (SOF) industry.

NFSTC has been serving the Department of Defense (DoD) community since 2007, specializing in forensic science-based training, procurement and support services. Global SOF Foundation brings together corporations and individuals to address global security challenges facing today’s modern warfighter.

“As a nation, we still have a need to arm our men and women in uniform with the best training and latest technology that will best suit them in the field,” Kevin Lothridge, NFSTC CEO, says. “Our partnership with Global SOF connects the best-of-the-best in the defense industry so we can work together to provide the highest quality products to the government.”

An added benefit of the partnership is access to a skilled veteran workforce. Global SOF has a network of SOF personnel for recruitment NFSTC can utilize when searching for specific qualifications for future projects. NFSTC is proud to have veterans on staff; nearly 30 percent of the workforce has served in the armed forces.

The two Tampa Bay area based organizations will showcase their partnership at a reception May 23 ahead of this year’s SOFIC convention in Tampa.

NFSTC adopts new management system to strengthen customer support

The National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC) is raising the bar with the recent implementation of Deltek Costpoint system. The move will allow NFSTC to continue to provide high quality contract commitments while streamlining projects.

“Deltek permits us to maintain accurate and reliable project data while meeting regulatory requirements all within one system,” says NFSTC’s contract administrator Tracy Goetz. “This system helps to reduce the inefficient resource allocations and scheduling delays that result from manual work-arounds.”

As Tampa’s eighth largest defense contractor, NFSTC is utilizing Deltek to become even more compliant with Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) approved processing, which only aids in earning Department of Defense and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)-regulated contracts.

“One of the biggest benefits we are seeing is the tie-in between our accounting and projects systems,” Goetz explains. “This allows us to be more timely and accurate from nearly every angle and in turn we can provide a better value to our customers.”

As a recognized leader in the forensic science community, NFSTC provides innovative training, support and services to a broad range of customers, including military and civilian law enforcement communities.

NFSTC Board honored by the Tampa Bay Business Journal

John Ives, Mike McCampbell and Board President Mitch Morrissey attended the TBBJ awards event on November 19, 2015.

The NFSTC Board of Directors has been honored in the inaugural class of Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Outstanding Directors. Our nine member board took the honors for a nonprofit, medium size, in the entire Tampa Bay region.

TBBJ-Board-2015Under their guidance, NFSTC was able to navigate through a major funding shift which dramatically impacted our business model. In 2011, NFSTC was the recipient of more than $10 million dollars in National Institute of Justice (NIJ) grant funding; by 2012 that total plummeted to nearly $4.5 million. By 2014, NIJ funding of training projects by NFSTC and other organizations had completely stopped.

NFSTC board members took an active role in expanding the customer base and securing new lines of business. We not only survived, we thrived through a major business transition and were able to celebrate success and our 20th anniversary this year.

We want to say thank you and congratulations to our board members! Read more about our board here.
