As a prime contractor: SPS was awarded the Air National Guard Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program Support contract on 30 June 2015. Circumstances required that SPS assume complete project management and on board 65 full time Yellow Ribbon Support Specialists throughout the 50 states, 3 territories, and the District of Columbia. SPS successfully accomplished the transition with no break in service to our airmen and their families. This contract represents a highly relevant core capability that demonstrates our ability to provide national level professional support that is geographically dispersed. Additionally, our Yellow Ribbon Support Specialist (YRSS) staff members went on to support executing airman and family well being activities and events at all wings. We provide coordination support at the state/wing level throughout the three phases of the deployment cycle, coordinating, preparing, and executing reunion and reintegration events and activities. We also provide logistical support for the Transition Assistance Program (TAP), strong bonds, and resilience, including organizing events, gathering data, requesting funding, making appointments, training dates and tracking and monitoring attendance.
We have also provided seamless transition for several professional services in less than 3 days for the following customers: GAARNG Medical Case Management, NCARNG Medical Case Management, PAARNG Facilities Program Technical Support, MILPAY Support, Medical Case Management, PRARNG Medical Case Management and UTARNG Medical Case Management.
Management Approach: We have a proven capability to provide nationwide staffing including transitioning staff within 10 calendar days – sometimes in as little as 1-3 days.
