Lanham, MD, 5/2/2017

The Capital Area Food Bank is the largest organization in the Washington metro area working to solve hunger and its companion problems: chronic undernutrition, heart disease, and obesity. By partnering with 444 community organizations in DC, MD, and VA, as well as delivering food directly into hard to reach areas, the CAFB is helping 540,000 people each year get access to good, healthy food. That’s 12% of our region’s mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, and grandparents.

Thirteen Oakland headquarters staff personnel went for the fourth year running as a volunteer team to pitch in at the large CAFB warehouse in Northeast DC. Team Oakland performed a new task this year, involving filling supplemental food boxes to be distributed to area seniors. Each box contained a variety of 18 packaged food items, and Team Oakland packed 6 pallets of boxes!  After packing the boxes, Team Oakland sorted a large quantity of apples. Upon completion of the volunteer work the Oakland team went to dinner together at a nearby restaurant.

Cedric E. Nash, Oakland CEO, noted “I am very grateful to our staff for their time and effort for this important cause again this year.  Giving back to the community is an important element of Oakland’s mission, so we welcomed the opportunity to help at CAFB”.

Oakland Consulting Group, Inc. (Oakland) announced today that it had successfully deployed a major enhancement to the PeopleSoft-based ERP system being used by the Smithsonian Institution (SI). Oakland is in a ten-year contract to support all modules of the SI ERP implementation.

The enhancement supports the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum (NASM) Transformation project. NASM has begun a 9-year extensive renovation project which will transform the NASM, the most popular of the Smithsonian’s museums. The success of NASM Transformation depends on successful fundraising by SI to elicit financial support from the American public. Our SI support team was asked to configure and implement significant enhancements that will directly support the fund raising activities, including informational dashboards for project management and SI executive management. The enhancements were deployed Friday April 21 2017, on-time and on-budget, eliciting praise for Oakland’s work.

Ron Treusdell, Oakland VP Federal Programs, noted “We are very pleased with this successful deployment by our SI ERP team for this important initiative. The Smithsonian is one of our oldest customers and we celebrate their success with NASM Transformation.”
