Contract Vehicles

The Federal Government is our largest customer, and we have worked to provide a set of diversified contract vehicles as mechanisms through which capabilities and services can be acquired. Through our Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC), General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedules (FSS), and agency-specific Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contracts that we have been awarded as a prime and subcontractor, we are able to offer federal agencies multiple ways to partner with us.

We are a women-owned small business (WOSB), yet big enough to provide the scale and reach-back support to operate like many larger contractors. We have credentialed, interdisciplinary professionals in house – 79% of our staff specialize in sciences, policy, or public health; 77% possess master’s degrees; and 35% possess PhDs, MDs, or JDs – meaning we can provide expert support directly to our clients and partners without having to outsource.
