About Operation Interdependence®
Operation Interdependence® (www.OIDelivers.org ) is a civilian-to-military delivery system® that serves as a program for Americans to demonstrate their support for our deployed military.

Across the nation, men and women are given orders to deploy on a regular scheduled deployment. These deployments are known to the public and allow our service members and their families to plan. However, special orders are given as well for our nation’s military to deploy at a moment’s notice.

Operation Interdependence® is designed to support regularly scheduled deployments. Information is given to military officials in order for the military leadership to have a grasp on our support. We do not nor, do we want to, interfere with special deployments, unless specifically requested by the deployed forces. It is imperative to all participating with O.I.®, to learn that care packaging can produce an unintended consequence, pulling a service man or woman from vital training only to be placed in a special deployment with training minus the hours lost due to attending to care packages from home.

We are essentially creating the work force from this side of the fence, and contributing to removing a logistical tail that tends to present some required decisions other than focusing on the battle plan. Everything we do must put the decision makers in the best position to carry out the strategies that will secure our freedoms.
Our success will be based on our ability to needing each other, tying all organizations that send care packages to our deployed forces with one civilian-to-military delivery system® that ensures that everyone gets a piece of home every month, just like clockwork. Let us change by making America first, and take charge by employing Supply Change Management creating a Capability System that is Efficient and Effective to increase our country’s Combat Capability.

I recently met with Gary Nakamoto, Chairman of Base Technologies, and spoke about a range of topics including how Base Technologies has kept on growing in a down economy, the Obama administration’s fiscal priorities, cloud computing and how to effect meaningful improvements to healthcare through technology.

Base Technologies, a leading IT services provider, has been a player in the federal IT space since 1987, and Chairman Nakamoto attributes its longevity to its solid business fundamentals, “in one word – people” as he put it. BaseTech’s key to success is “very highly qualified good people, people of good character that reflect both knowledge of the past, knowledge now and very eager to go out and seek improvements.”

They’re looking to expand their current line of business with “DHS, NIH, Treasury and MHS.”Mr. Nakamoto said that BaseTech has done some green IT work through what’s called TDM, or Travel Demand Management, “we help do ride sharing, telework and all of the things that you would want to do to utilize technology to get cars off the road and make people happier and more productive.”

That’s where the money is, areas of critical importance like “healthcare, security, of course any DOD operations,” he says. While everyone in the federal government might be talking about cloud computing right now, “one thing that people need to realize about the federal government that it kind of tends to move in an evolutionary process rather than a revolutionary.” While transformational might be a buzz word in Washington, “it costs a lot of money and there are a lot of requirements and it is just an enormous process.”

The key to success for the federal government in cloud computing will be “a good requirements analysis.” He said, “Change for change’s sake without thinking about everything can be both costly, time consuming and not as productive if you begin your journey on the right step. They need to get out and talk and set things up to better achieve their missions whatever that is. Whether cloud computing is the next big thing we will just have to see.”
According to Mr. Nakamoto, “the strength of technology is flexibility, accessibility, affordability, safety, security and it’s got to make you more productive,” and that statement underpins his views on technology in healthcare.

“The patient is more important than the process,” he says. Healthcare IT can’t just be used so a care provider can “check it off,” so to speak. “If you don’t take care of the patient in a meaningful and sincere way and you are more interested in just process then something gets lost in the mix. It’s like walking and chewing gum, you can follow a process but the process should never come at the price of the patient.”

The human element is what is too often left out of the healthcare equation, according to Mr. Nakamoto, “for every patient you have to have a good doctor, a good nurse and a quality staff.” He’s “a little disappointed in the job training” put forward by DOL ostensibly to prepare America for widespread health IT adoption “because I don’t think it really reflects what people need and the direction of our country and how we compete in the world.” He said, that he would like to see “a lot more money put into higher education and vocational education.”

He urges caution when approaching the healthcare issue from a legislative standpoint, “I think healthcare is a moral bond between the patient, the families and the doctor and I really prefer the carrot rather than the stick. I think you have to be careful when you legislate and think about the unintended consequences because at the heart of healthcare you want it to be accessible, affordable and probably the most important thing is you want high quality care.”
For Mr. Nakamoto, the key to success in business, healthcare, IT consolidation or government has been attending to the human element with thorough planning. Judging from his track record in business, I’m inclined to agree.

Spellings to Lead Presidential Delegation for World Expo ‘America Day’ in Aichi

Statement by Ambassador J. Thomas Schieffer on the Appointment of the Honorable Margaret Spellings, Secretary of Education to lead a Presidential Delegation to Represent the United States of America on U.S. National Day at the 2005 World Exposition in Aichi

June 15, 2005

I enthusiastically welcome President Bush’s appointment of the Honorable Margaret Spellings, Secretary of Education, to lead a Presidential Delegation to represent the United States of America on U.S. National Day at the 2005 World Exposition in Aichi. The appointment of a Presidential Delegation by President Bush symbolizes the importance the United States Government places on its participation in Expo 2005 and on the U.S. relationship with Japan.

Ambassador Lisa Gable, U.S. Commissioner General to Aichi Expo 2005; Tommy Lasorda, a member of the U.S. National Baseball Hall of Fame; Japanese-American businessman Gary Nakamoto, CEO of Base Technologies, Inc. and I will join Secretary Spellings as members of the U.S. Presidential Delegation appointed by President Bush.

The U.S. National Day activities at the Expo will be a celebration of youth and children, and will serve as an ideal complement to the U.S. Pavilion’s theme of hope, optimism, enterprise and freedom. We appreciate the opportunity to share our values with the many visitors to the Expo from Japan and around the world, and sincerely thank the Government of Japan, the Association for the 2005 World Exposition, and the people of Aichi Prefecture, for successfully hosting this marvelous world’s fair.
