Our services come with the following unique Tecolote advantages:

Demonstrated Experience: We wield over 40 years of experience in providing credible cost estimates and financial management, scheduling, and EVM services for complex acquisition, construction, and integration projects. Our experience spans from space systems to technology programs, large structures, radar, communications, missiles, aircraft, ships, electronics, signal processing, ground facilities, Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) Trains, and computer software.

Robust Tool Sets: Tecolote offers a creator’s understanding of the Automated Cost Estimating Integrated Tools (ACEIT). ACEIT is the industry standard for developing cost estimates and automating the estimating environment. We provide “open” toolsets that enable traceability to raw data and a full understanding of our methodologies. Another tool we have developed and employ is the Joint Analysis of Cost and Schedule (JACS) tool that integrates MS Project with ACEIT to model joint cost and schedule analysis. By customer demand, we are currently developing a Primavera (P6) version of the JACS tool; a demonstration version is expected to be available in Fall of 2013 and a fully operational version in January 2014.

Major Program Approvals: We have provided recent and successful program review and approval support to over 350 major government programs. Our experience helping these high-profile programs succeed translates directly into large-scale projects across the government and commercial sectors.

Corporate Independence: Tecolote is not owned by, or operated as, a subsidiary of a larger enterprise, but has demonstrated historical solid and stable financials. Our employee-owners are highly motivated to assure integrity and quality in all our affairs.

Highly Skilled and Diverse Workforce: Our staff is composed of over 500 analysts, engineers, managers, and support staff who boast an average of 17 years of relevant experience. Our breadth of education and experience includes mathematics, operations research, economics, statistics, engineering, science, business, finance, and accounting disciplines.
