Mr. Jack Samar has proven himself to be a leader not only on the battlefield but also in the private sector, overseeing people and programs that protect our nation from potentially catastrophic security risks. A valued team member since completing his military career in 2002, the skills and insights he gained during his time in the Navy were directly transferable to his position with the company. Mr. Samar exhibits hands-on abilities in managing, developing, executing security policies, leadership in oversight of staff, and execution of DoD programs. Mr. Samar is a valued and trusted resource who contributes significantly to the company’s lasting success.
Not only a Systems Analyst, Mr. Samar also works as a Group Leader / Portfolio Manager, serving as the programmatic lead for all CSCI Information Management projects and the functional/contractual point in most CSCI opportunities. Mr. Samar initiates and oversees needed integration of personnel skills, contractual issues, and deliverables. Mr. Samar is relied upon for obtaining and managing many of the contract vehicles that CSCI uses, including personally managing three contract vehicles and nine contracts through those vehicles. As the outreach to various contractors and Government COR’s, he enables CSCI to find multiple contract avenues through which clients can execute task funding.
Mr. Samar continues as the CSCI lead representative with several ongoing prime contractors and remains key in obtaining teaming agreements with Alion on their USAF BAA and with the Naval Post Graduate School proposals on a GSA BAA. He participates in most company leadership meetings reviewing current tasks and opportunities for future business, company policies and procedures, and processes. With an innate ability to assess performance and counsel, he has been Corporate leadership’s sounding board on many vital issues. Using his extensive military experience/background, he can provide insight into the customer’s rationale for making a decision. He has established a trusted relationship with multiple prime contractor project managers, and that relationship has enabled initiatives on their part to help CSCI develop key subcontract positions.
Mr. Samar organizes CSCI’s inputs with the Army Research Lab on their BAA that will become a CSCI Prime Contractual vehicle. He has assisted internally with CSCI’s Congressional Plus-Up. His hands-on monitoring and facilitating both the USMC Director Command, Control, Communications and Computers (C4) Content, and Bandwidth Management (CBM) task and the Common Aviation Command and Control Systems new equipment training team has grown both jobs into multi-year business for CSCI. The CBM task has the potential to become an operation software capability fielded across the USMC communications infrastructure, thus yielding long-term support and funding. The CAC2S job has enabled CSCI to build an exceptional team of former USMC operator and maintainer personnel able to teach from a “real” user point of view.
Prior to earning a Master of Art degree in Government and International Relations from Salve Regina College, Mr. Samar also received a Master of Art degree in Strategic Studies and National Securities Policies at the Naval War College and a Bachelor of Art degree in Government and International Relations from the University of Notre Dame.
