"We are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full
well we will not catch it. But we are going to relentlessly chase it,
because in the process we will catch excellence."

Organizational Performance Consultants (OPCs)—here for you!
In1994, the [Quality] Performance Consultant Program was started to help integrate TQM principles into CG work.
Today, the OPCs are an internal resource to support commands & staffs (units) in their efforts to align with USCG management policies and practices and to assist with performance assessment, planning, and improvement.
Save scarce time and funds byengaging OPCs for assistance—it’s easy. Compare asking a ship-mate for help to formal and often lengthy contracting for external consultants. Did you know that OPCs cost units little-to-nothing? The Program funds OPC travel and most materials. Even better, OPCs know our culture and current initiatives and issues.
A great value:compare USCG costs to commercial consultants: Average cost of MOBIS contract Senior Consultant = $152/hour (labor costs—current contract): Average cost of OPC = $54/hour (labor costs—FY12 SPC).
There are 30 OPCs ready to serve based in Alameda, Boston, Cleveland, Honolulu, Kodiak, Miami, New Orleans, Portsmouth, Seattle, & Washington DC.
