QinetiQ North America will provide the Public Building Service requirements development, business process engineering, architecture, design, development, operations and maintenance, and training.
eRDP will automate such tasks as online surveys, survey analysis utilities, property walkthroughs, business intelligence, and non-space requirements management. The application integrates with multiple enterprise solutions and delivers functionality both on- and off-line through multiple access points, including mobile devices. eRDP will be the first application to fully leverage the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) infrastructure that QinetiQ North America is currently implementing for the Public Building Service through the eCommon initiative.
"Our customer expects eRDP to become a core enterprise application for the Public Building Service," says Sam Haidar, Senior Vice President for the Federal/Civilian Sector of the IT Services Group. "QinetiQ North America will be automating key business processes that are now conducted manually. In addition to increasing customer satisfaction, eRDP will further enable the agency to achieve its national coherence goal by providing consistent, normalized, and repeatable processes for capturing customers' technical space requirements. We're looking forward to using our Service Oriented Architecture expertise to help the government manage its real estate needs even more effectively and efficiently."
The eRDP project supports the Public Building Service's Human Capital Initiative, redefining the way PBS associates interact with their customers. eRDP is the first phase of the Full Lifecycle of Customer Interaction (FLCI), which will cover other mission-critical systems. The FLCI is the full collection of business processes the Public Building Service uses to meet customer space requirements, from request initiation through space allocation and inventory management.
