Nearly six months after releasing their report and recommendations for changes at the Steamship Authority, the consulting team that performed last year’s comprehensive review of boat line operations is coming back for more.

After receiving the $217,976 report in December, the SSA board of governors engaged HMS Consulting and Technical and Glosten Associates for $135,000 to help put its recommendations into effect.

On Wednesday in Falmouth, members of the Seattle-based consulting team will join the boat line board and top managers for an all-day public meeting.

Beginning at 10 a.m. in the administration building on Palmer avenue, the SSA and consultants will review the report’s 10 recommendations. They fall into four main areas: process-based management, organizational structure, management recruiting and accountability, and vision.

The SSA has already tackled several of the recommendations, adding some, but not all, new positions that were advised. The boat line has also investing in management systems for safety, quality and learning.

Wednesday’s afternoon session, following a break for lunch, will focus on establishing a strategic direction for the boat line.

“There is no long range plan,” said Matthew Lankowski, an ocean engineer on the consulting team, during a public presentation on the Vineyard early this year.

The boat line commissioned the comprehensive review from HMS/Glosten in the spring of 2018, after a series of ferry breakdowns, hundreds of canceled trips and the failure of the SSA’s online reservation system.

Over a series of site visits, interviews, document reviews and videoconferences, consultants examined five key SSA functions — vessel operations, fleet maintenance, information technology, management structure and public communications — to make their final recommendations.

Putting the recommendations into effect is expected to cost $1 million initially and an additional $1 million annually.

Public comment will conclude Wednesday’s meeting. Island residents may ride the ferry at no charge to attend the meeting. The SSA parking shuttle stops outside the administration building.
