Resource Consultants, Inc. (RCI) is a professional services firm that has been supporting the Department of Defense, federal agencies, state and local governments and commercial clients since 1979. The company has been growing at a 30 percent annual growth rate since 1998, and is ranked 40th in the "Top 100 Largest Federal Prime Contractors" listing published in fiscal year (FY) 2001.

In 1990 RCI established seven pilot sites for what later became the worldwide Army Career and Alumni Program (ACAP). This program has served as the primary means to transition soldiers departing the Army into private sector jobs. Over one million soldiers have been served by RCI-- operated ACAP Centers located at Army installations throughout the world.

More recently, RCI was awarded a $72 million contract to replace five active Army recruiting companies with contract recruiters in mid-2002 as part of a "Community-Based Recruiting" test program. RCI recruiters will operate under the same rules and chain of command as other U.S. Army recruiting companies. If this program is successful, it will enable the Army to free up recruiting billets nationwide and return noncommissioned officers to units throughout the Army.

RCI is also a prime contractor on the HRXXI contract, the federal government's largest human resource (HR) and administrative support contract. Managed by the Assistant Secretary of the Army, Manpower and Reserve Affairs, the contract has a ceiling of $1.5 billion and supports some of the most important HR projects in the federal government.

For example, under the HRXXI contract, RCI has enlisted over 23,000 soldiers into the U.S. Army reserve components, and currently is responsible for over 45 percent of the total active Army accessions into the Army Reserve and National Guard. Since first assuming the mission in January 1996 of transferring soldiers into the reserve components, RCI has met the program mission requirements every quarter and maintains an overall mission achievement of 123 percent. RCI is also assisting the U.S. Army Recruiting Command in establishing a Recruiter Training Assistance Center at Fort Knox, Ky., to provide advanced distributed learning support, develop courseware and provide training support packages for the Recruiting and Retention School.

In early 2002, RCI was awarded a modification to the HRXXI contract to issue the newly required common access card to all active duty Army personnel, selected reserve members, DoD civilian employees and eligible contract employees.
