ITP Completes a Successful 2012
and Looks Forward with Optimism to 2013
ITP completed a successful 2012, and despite the fiscal issues impacting the nation and the U.S. Government today, we have cautious optimism for continued growth in 2013. ITP won two important contracts in 2012, one as a subcontractor to Harkcon, Inc., providing support to the NNSA Emergency Operations Training Academy (see August 1, 2012 What’s New); and a second as a CTA contract holder for the NNSA Technical, Engineering, and Programmatic Support Services (TEPSS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (see November 2, 2012 What’s New). These two contracts will solidify our position in DOE and NNSA in the coming years. ITP was also awarded a second option year on its OST PORA contract (see October 1, 2012). ITP was also honored in 2012 by recognition as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies as a member of the national INC 500/5000, as well as by two New Mexico awards, the Private 100 and the Flying 40.

ITP Principal Partner is Keynote Speaker
on the Nuclear Security Enterpise at
American Nuclear Society Meeting
As part of an ongoing series of presentations on the status of the Nuclear Security Enterprise, ITP Principal Partner, Jack Jekowski was the keynote speaker at the joint American Nuclear Society (ANS)/Institute for Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) dinner in Santa Fe, New Mexico the night of November 2, 2012. Mr. Jekowski’s talk was entitled: “Weathering the Perfect Storm: Implications of 2012 Events on the Nuclear Security Enterprise” and examined the remarkable events of 2012 and their influence on the Nuclear Security Enterprise (NSE). Topics ranged from the Administration's National Security Strategy to reduce the role of nuclear weapons, to the most recent tensions over Iran's nuclear programs, as the NSE faces many programmatic, as well as organizational challenges. Mr. Jekowski also explored what the remaining two months of 2012 have in store for the NSE, as even more strategic discontinuities occur that could change the future path of the NNSA, DOE, the National Laboratories and the M&O contractors, including the results of the upcoming U.S. Presidential election, and a possible decision by Israel to intervene militarily to solve the Iranian problem. The presentation also provided an historic look at the formation of NNSA; the roller coaster ride they have been on with Congress, the DOE-IG and GAO over the past decade; and the complicated path to the future. Large format (11x17) pdf versions of the more complicated time lines used by Mr. Jekowski in the presentation are provided here. For more information on the event see http://local.ans.org/trinity.
