LMK is a limited liability corporation staffed with experienced professionals.  The company is directed by three managing partners who emphasize planning, quality, and communication.  Each of the managing partners has assigned responsibilities, including financial
, project management and new business development. Every task, no matter what its magnitude, is assigned a principal of the firm, either to execute the project or to oversee the task depending on the required expertise. Teams are assigned and scheduled once the sc
ope of work is defined and the required expertise identified.                                                                                                                                                                                                           
LMK often uses subcontractors to complement our staff.  Typically each subcontractor (generally a subject matter expert) is a small, small disadvantaged, or women-owned business.  Each subcontractor has a customized memorandum of agreement defining his or her work
 scope and performance with LMK. LMK provides compensated training to our personnel, covering such subjects as safety, LMK goals and vision, communication and documentation requirements, and LMK quality assurance.  This training has proved invaluable in defining e
xpectations and in establishing performance results and teamwork.                                                                                                                                                                                                       
Quality, like safety, is best implemented by establishing a corporate culture that embraces both attributes. At LMK quality is derived from corporate leadership and is expected in performance.  High-quality and timely work accounts for the continuing success of LM
K and is its pathway towards finding and developing future projects.                                                                                                                                                                                                    
LMK accounting follows the US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Each task is subdivided into subtasks and charge codes are established.  Personnel complete time cards on a daily basis with management approval on a weekly basis.  The corporate accoun
tant monitors time charges for both overhead and direct labor.  An LMK managing partner provides oversight.

LMK personnel position qualifications are defined in the attached labor category definitions.  Our personnel are encouraged to pursue continuing education in their field of expertise and actively participate in professional societies or community activities.  We s
