Strategic Planning Services, Inc. and LandrySMS (DBA Landry Consulting) announce a cooperative agreement for delivery of Safety Management Systems (SMS), Safety Risk Management (SRM), and data management services on 22-August-2022.

Strategic Planning Services, Inc., (SPS), a U.S. based global airport planning consultancy that helps airport owners develop visionary, sustainable, feasible and efficient aviation solutions, has formed a cooperative agreement with LandrySMS, a leading DBE/WBE/SBE firm that prepares SMS and SRM programs and facilitates Safety Risk Assessments (SRA) that meet FAA requirements under Order 5200.11A. Together, SPS and LandrySMS are working to help airport leaders implement safe and visionary solutions.

"The outstanding reputation of SPS in helping airport leaders in the world’s largest markets define successful long-range development strategies complements Landry's SMS safety review process. We look forward to working together to help airport leaders deliver a better aviation experience,” says Douglas Goldberg, CEO, SPS.

At the core of SMS is the ability to identify and manage potential safety hazards and risks. This service complements SPS's long-range airport planning strategies to assure the recommended development plan is safe, efficient, sustainable, and financially viable,” says Joanne Landry, Principal Consultant at LandrySMS.
