Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies (CHDS) – Logistic Support Services (LSS) Project
The William J. Perry Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies (WJPC), originally known as the Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies (CHDS), strives to be the premier academic institution for defense and security dialogue in the Western Hemisphere.
Through educational courses, seminars, outreach, strategic dialogue, and focused research in support of policy objectives, the Perry Center works with senior civilian and military security and defense officials from the region to build strong, sustainable networks of security and defense leaders and institutions. In so doing, the Perry Center promotes greater understanding of US policy, mutually supportive approaches to security challenges, and improved, sustainable institutional capacity.
Scope of Work
Ventura provided CHDS with Program Management, Training, IT Support, Administration, Educational Support, and special support for distant learning courses and the e-Journal (an on-line publication), in addition to various other educational added value support items such as Subject Matter Experts, adjunct professor, and more. More specifically, we provided the following services under this contract:
- International meeting support for a wide range of participants and attendees.
- Coordinated support to the annual regional seminars, to include all levels of logistical support and planning for both international and national regional meeting locations.
- Assisted CHDS in conducting academic programs that addressed critical strategic and defense/security issues for Latin America, Central America, and the Caribbean to include Canada and Mexico:
- Provided service support, including courses, seminars, conferences, workshops, research, e-portal distant learning media and support to access other on-line educational programs such as Blackboard and Merlin.
Ventura’s contribution and support resulted in seamless coordination between CHDS and global participants, both with seminars with the use of technology to establish productive dialog between the participants. This, in turn, helped enhanced a relationship of trust and understanding among leaders regarding defense and security policies.
