JHT Awarded DOHA and DEOMI Contracts

Mar. 6, 2017, Orlando FL
JHT Incorporated announced today that they were awarded two five-year government support contracts: one from the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA) and a second from the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI). Both contracts are firm-fixed price with a combined value of $19,500,000.

The Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals, a component of the Defense Legal Services Agency, provides hearings and issues decisions in personnel security clearance cases for DoD Civilian and Military personnel as well as contractor personnel performing classified work for all DoD components and 31 other Federal Agencies and Departments. JHT has provided support to DOHA for over 15 years and will manage 26 full-time employees as a result of the win.

“I am extremely pleased about this award,” said Frank Loomis, JHT Program Manager for the DOHA contract. “It demonstrates that our support to the customer is greatly appreciated and is a testament to the successful collaborative efforts of our internal team.”

The Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute’s (DEOMI) mission is to support the Office of the Secretary Defense (OSD) and Services on assessment, training, education, research, development, knowledge management (clearinghouse), and consultation related to human relations issues intra-service and Department of Defense (DoD)-wide. JHT employees will provide research support services for DEOMI for the duration of the contract.

“JHT prides itself on delivering quality service and putting our customers first and foremost. Our ability to secure another five-year contract with DEOMI is proof that we delivered on these promises. We are excited to continue performing research on important topics related to human relations and social issues,” stated Owen Nofuente, JHT Program Manager for DEOMI.

JHT Team Supports Manatee Rescue In South Carolina

JHT Team Supports Manatee Rescue In South Carolina

Dec. 22, 2016, Orlando FL
A team of JHT employees in Charleston, South Carolina joined a collaborative and successful effort in rescuing four endangered manatees. The rescue mission took place over the course of two days and involved several national, state and local agencies.

A drop in water temperature within the Cooper River and a warm water outflow, adjacent to the KapStone Paper Mill, caused the marine mammals to go off course which distanced them from essential food resources and their natural habitat. Representatives from KapStone saw an opportunity to assist with the safety of the manatees by monitoring them and reporting their activity back to the rescue team.

On December 8, JHT associates Brian Balmer, Brian Quigley, Eric Zolman and Todd Speakman (all representing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) joined U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Sea World Orlando Rescue Team in locating and capturing the adult male and female manatees. They were reported healthy after careful examination and subsequently returned to the wild near Port St. John in Brevard County by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission later that same day. Additionally, on December 9, the same crew located and rescued two male manatees and successfully returned them to Florida around 9pm.
