Richland, WA - Independent Strategic Management Solutions, Inc. (ISMSolutions) a management and technical consulting business, was launched this month in Richland, Washington.  ISMSolutions provides professional technical consulting services to government organizations and contractors in the environmental, national security, energy, electrical utility and defense sectors.

ISMSolutions specializes in assessing the health of government and contractor organizations and operations, providing objective solutions and guidance to assist them in delivering quality results safely, consistently, and cost-effectively.

Company founder and president Shirley Olinger said ISMSolutions’ mission is to provide a reliable resource for the government and contractor community locally and nationally.

The ISMSolutions team includes former federal and contractor professionals with significant nuclear operational experience offering independent consulting services. 

As federal budget issues increase uncertainty, Olinger believes ISMSolutions is well positioned to allow clients to acquire sought-after services on an as-needed basis to get the job done.  Carl Adrian with the Tri-City Economic Development Council (TRIDEC) endorses the company’s approach saying, “Not only does ISMSolutions meet the government’s policy to increase the number of small woman-owned businesses in underrepresented industries, ISMSolutions as a local small business will ensure our federal dollars stay in Eastern Washington.”
