U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District. ATI provides environmental remediation and compliance services and munitions response at several former military ranges.
Functional Area 3.15 – Measurement Facilities, Range, and Instrumentation Support
ATI provides qualified personnel with the experience to perform engineering, analytical, and technician disciplines in the operation and support of measurement facilities and ranges as required within Functional Area 3.15. The projects and contracts described below present examples of our work that is applicable to this Functional Area.
Federal Highway Administration. Under our FHWA contract, ATI supports their Mobile Concrete Lab by providing equipment operation, material testing, data acquisition, data analysis, and training of highway and industry personnel in the activities related to concrete durability, construction related issues, nondestructive testing and the implementation of the new mechanistic-empirical pavement design guide. Services under this contract include:
- Developing and leading a nation-wide QA/QC program for concrete;
- Conducting operational field testing and working with manufacturers to improve test equipment;
- Conducting cost-benefit analyses of new test methods;
- Conducting other special studies that advance the concrete pavement industry.
State of Delaware. ATI performs services related to operation and support of ranges in our contract with the State of Delaware for O&M of their State Police Firearms Training Facility. The services that ATI provides under this contract include maintenance and operation of the facility HVAC, bullet trap, soundproofing, lighting, and target systems. We also provide munitions clean-up; related safety training; and monitor and control on-site hazards and conditions to ensure the safety of range workers and users.
USACE Omaha District. Our experience with larger scale ranges includes Military Munitions Response Program (MMRP) support for the USACE Omaha District. With our 8(a) mentor HydroGeoLogic, Inc., ATI supports munitions location, identification, and removal/destruction at multiple ranges for the Colorado Army National Guard, including rocket ranges, target areas, various practice ranges with potential to contain high explosives, and small arms ranges, as well as cleanup operations at a range in Fort Missoula, Montana.
Functional Area 3.20 – Program Support
ATI routinely provides qualified staff to support a wide variety of programs for various government clients. The following contracts provide four examples of ATI successfully providing program support.
Maryland Transit Administration (MTA). ATI has provided a professional staff member for MTA program management on a continual basis since 2010. Our staff member has not changed in the past 6 years, enabling long-term stability for the MTA program with no loss of time due to the learning curves that would have occurred if the continuity were not there.
Bureau of Indian Affairs. ATI provided staff to BIA to coordinate NEPA compliance for their nationwide construction program. ATI coordinated environmental requirements and review with construction managers, on-site BIA and tribal personnel, and third party contractors. We provided guidance to ensure that environmental investigations and reporting were conducted in a timely manner by the other parties so that design and construction schedules were not impacted. We assisted with the administration of Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) contracting on behalf of BIA, and provided a technical writer to augment their office staff.
Delaware State Police. O&M activities are done at the State Police Firing Range on a daily basis, and ATI provides full-time technicians for this task. The personnel that ATI provides are skilled at maintenance activities, are highly resourceful, and are the types of people that “can fix anything.”
Federal Highway Administration. ATI has staffed the FHWA Mobile Concrete Lab since October 2014 and is providing all of the high-level technical support that is required for this program. Our team is responsible for making all of the arrangements and scheduling for the lab and assures that it arrives when and where it is needed. The team is required to be aware of other contractors engaged in similar work and must cooperate closely with them. ATI staff follow all government procurement requirements to ensure that supplies and services are delivered at an affordable price.

Quality is an integral part of ATI’s business model. We strive to provide quality products and services to our customers on all of our projects, no matter how large or how small. Our Corporate Quality Assurance (QA) Plan is the cornerstone on which we build our QA/QC program.
The Corporate QA Plan was originally adopted in 2001 and is the master document utilized by ATI to assure a quality end product which corresponds to generally recognized engineering practices and standards. Specifically, the Plan addresses the procedures utilized to identify contract nonconformance and the process necessary to implement corrective measures. The QA Plan is an evolving document and is revised from time to time as needs arise.
ATI employs stringent management controls, assignment of the correct people and resources, and a rigorous system of checks, balances, and reviews to ensure the highest quality in project design, execution, data analysis, and deliverables. At ATI, quality does not start and end with a review process; rather, quality is the result of teamwork, communication, mentoring, and a rapport among all levels of staff so that questions get answered, assistance is given, and problems are avoided or rapidly resolved whenever they arise.
ATI’s Corporate QA Plan is supplemented by task specific standard operating procedures (SOPs), including 15 SOPs specifically geared toward QA processes. Internal technical review is performed at every step from the inception of a project to the administrative closeout of a task order. This produces the quality documents and deliverables expected by the client. Based on the specific scope of work for a project, professional staff will be assigned with the credentials and experience to address the technical issues associated with the task order. Starting with the proposal phase, appropriate resources are brought in for risk review and for technical, pricing, contractual, personnel, and subcontracting components. Proposals undergo review prior to submittal. After project/task award, the project manager communicates task details, responsibilities, expectations, and required level of effort with project staff. Performance is reviewed as necessary during task execution, including close tracking of progress by the project manager and field quality audits as appropriate. Products are reviewed at the appropriate level, depending on the size and complexity of the task/deliverable. All deliverables are reviewed by the individual task/project manager and undergo additional reviews by senior staff and subject matter experts as appropriate.
