As the prime contractor’s assigned project manager, Mr. Rupp led their client’s Financial Management Information System (FMIS) – COTS Evaluation Project.  The federal health client’s Canteen department was responsible for vendor management plus purchasing and accounting for all canteen stores located within the client’s 168 Hospitals and other medical facilities.  Their legacy financial management system was no longer sustainable and lacked compliance with new government regulations.  Mr. Rupp oversaw the team that captured and documented business and technical requirements, used decision analysis and resolution (DAR)‎ techniques to evaluate compliant commercial FMIS applications, and made final vendor/ product recommendations.
