Chronology of Our Successes
CRC is a woman-owned small business dedicated to producing quality work.
We are dedicated to producing quality work for our clients. Our total win record stands at 80 percent.
Projects proposed ranged from $10 million to $50 billion and cover the full range of Government and commercial clients.
CRC began in 1992 as a proposal company, preparing technical, schedule, and cost proposals. During those years, we have led proposal efforts for successful awards of DOE, DoD, DOS, and other “three-letter” agency contracts to our clients.
We have honed our skills and qualifications in this very disciplined environment; an environment where there are no points for second place, where good isn’t good enough, and where late means that you may as well have stayed home.
In 1996, CRC formalized its approach to proposals and projects into a set of processes called ACTWRite (for Analyze, Comply, Think, Write, Refine). Since then, ACTWRite has become established as an effective toolbox for planning, scheduling, estimating, and controlling projects, from the initial proposal through project completion
We are always looking for more exceptional personnel.

We help develop simple but very robust solutions for managing projects well. Using our solutions, everyone will know the project’s critical path, budget, required productivity rates, changes and their impact, as well as risks and their impacts. The management team will also have a clear picture of the project without fear of surprises. Providing quality project controls support to our clients mean integration into their organization and providing services in alignment with their missions and goals.
Providing quality project controls support to our clients mean integration into their organization and providing services in alignment with their missions and goals.
We publish and emphasize the critical path portion of the schedule.
We support development of an accrual and commitment tracking system.
We set up a commitment tracking system that allows project managers to see and understand commitments to ensure their estimate-to-compete is accurate.
We set up cost account managers at a lower level and publish cost and productivity estimates. We conduct daily meetings to discuss critical activity progress and measure key metrics against planned productivity and plan work around actions to ensure critical activities stay on track.
We publish easy to read productivity curves and update critical curves daily and non-critical curves weekly. We use larger font to emphasize critical work and place them to maximize their availability to everyone on the project.
Production meetings are dedicated to reviewing the critical path and actions needed to keep ahead of schedule. Workforce planning is focused on critical work first. Critical path activities are worked every day at full staffing levels with the best workers.
We set up a trend and baseline change notification, tracking, and approval system.
We set up a risk register and determine the amount of project risk. We interview every level of the workforce to determine the biggest risks. Next, we list them in order of probability and impact, then publish and review the list weekly with the work teams.
CRC Technologies has been supporting our clients resolve disputes for the past 15 years, providing unmatched service resulting in $4.2 billion in settlements.

Confidential Client 1 - Claim Value: $230M
CRC lead development and provided technical resources to prepare a claim for reimbursement of project costs incurred outside the scope of our confidential client’s contract with their customer. During discovery, our personnel documented the scope of the contract, the scope of work that our client claimed was outside the contract scope, and determined the extent of documentation existing between our client and their client. For scope areas our staff determined to be outside the contract scope, our personnel developed planning packages, cost estimates, schedules, basis of estimates, and technical descriptions of the work. Using these planning packages, we developed the claim package for our client to request equitable adjustment for the additional work performed.
Confidential Client 2
CRC led and performed forensic efforts to document the chronology of more than 180 changes to a $1.5B contract. Our personnel documented the scope of each change, the timing of each, and their impacts, not only individually but also the cumulative impacts in their aggregate. Products delivered to our client included a report documenting the scope and impact of each contract change, an integrated analysis documenting the aggregate impacts, an execute management summary document, and a presentation package for the client’s contract manager to brief their executive management and their client’s management.
Confidential Client 3 - Claim Value: $270M
CRC developed a five-phase process to “true-up” a confidential client’s contract and provided technical resources to prepare a claim for reimbursement of project costs incurred outside the scope of our confidential client’s contract with their customer. For scope areas our staff determined to be outside the contract scope, our personnel developed planning packages, cost estimates, schedules, basis of estimates, and technical descriptions of the work. Using these planning packages, we developed the claim package for our client to request equitable adjustment for the additional work performed.
