Technical Writing and Documentation Specialist:

GlobeConsult provides technical writing skills for all types of technical and professional documents and reports. These could include among other types; RFPs, needs assessments, technical reviews, interim and final reports, product definition and reviews, etc.

Our process starts with a review of the project and preliminary outline. We will perform the complete job from creating a the original document, developing the outline, proofreading your writing and issuing the final document. We will reduce writer's block and writer's anxiety.

We are currently working on a project with PWGSC where we are writing several documants including; Business Plans, SOWS, Pricing Sheets, Evaluation Methodology, RFIs and RFPs. We previuous worked with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada & IT/Net reviewing, developing and rewriting their Policy and Procedures manuals. ĚThis includes providing consistent, better-flowing documentation with proper tables of content, flow charts, and references for the HSF Grant-in-Aid and HSF Research Fund Initiatives, and Personnel Awards.

We recently developed the technical documentation for three specific Health Canada programs This included an options analysis for the long-term preservation of patient records for the Health Canada Information Management Department - First Nations Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB). Secondly, this included defining and setting up an Essential Records Program, which would comply with the overall the Health Canada Essential Records Program thereby supporting the continuity and maintenance of FNIHB's operations if interrupted. Finally, this included a Health Record Management (HRM) Capability study to define the requisite HRM capability, develop supporting tools, and provide a high level implementation plan for the First Nation and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) of Health Canada.

Networks:

GlobeConsult has an extensive background establishing and managing networks of all kinds. From simple point-to-point networks to complex multipoint-to-multipoint distribution systems in 911 PSAP,LAN, WLAN, VPLS, MAN, WAN, local access, inter-exchange, long distance, backbone, and community and rural environments. We have the necessary expertise working with the latest transport and access technologies. We can recommend specific network topologies for each unique situation.

Our Pre-Operations Planning has been developed from many years experience overseeing pre-operations activities in many countries. This includes: performing comprehensive due diligence reviews, producing detailed commercial forecasts, commissioning and analysing field surveys, reviewing existing telecommunications construction plans, detailing specific pre-operational staffing requirements, finalizing and confirming all previous marketing studies, and other activities necessary for a smooth and seamless implementation.

Our engineering and technical staff are experienced in all areas of implementation planning. Each scheduled event is put into a critical path analysis to determine the impact each activity has on the other and to ensure the process is performed effectively, efficiently, well coordinated and in a seamless manner. Comprehensive test cases are produced and the verification process is conducted using simulated traffic and conditions similar to the live network before any networks are placed into service.

Our Newtwork Operations Planning has been developed the latest network strategies which provide the new thrusts necessary to drive additional planning processes. These planning activities generate new projects and plans. They basically include the Operation, Administration, Maintenance and Provisioning (OAM&P) network management aspects of the Open Systems Architecture (OSA) business model.
