Management Philosophy

The key to CAEI, Inc success in providing customer satisfaction lies in the strength of our Project Managers. Never more than one layer away from the executive management of the company, each Project Manager plays a critical and essential role in planning, directing, controlling and supervising the resources dedicated to a project.

To ensure a thorough understanding of the needs of the client, Project Managers are brought into the contract cycle as early as possible. Many of the managers who participate in the presentation of corporate capabilities briefs to prospective clients will also play an integral part in responding to requests for proposals from those same clients.

Our Goal is Client Satisfaction

In addition to assessing the technical needs of a client and determining the resources necessary to meet those needs, CAEI Project Managers are adept at locating the sources of supply required to meet the material needs of a client. Ever present is the goal of providing customers with the best value for their contract dollars. Not only will the Project Managers negotiate the best pricing possible from vendors, they will also direct and control the purchasing process from preparation of purchase orders to determining the most expeditious and cost effective way of delivering products to the client.

In many respects, the Project Manager becomes an extension of the client's staff. Because our goal is client satisfaction, the interests of the client are the interests of the Project Manager. They are available to assist the client in planning as well as implementation. The Project Manager can provide the client with data necessary in the decision making process and can be an invaluable tool in alternatives assessments (i.e., "WHAT IF" scenarios).
