About Us

Welcome to ASD

Since our formation, we’ve been continually improving our capability to provide leading IT solutions to government.

Our Company

We are in the business of providing leading-edge IT solutions to government.

Our Culture

Our service delivery capabilities arise from our company’s culture of excellence.

Our Customers

We are customer driven; our success depends on our customers’ success.

Our History

Since our formation, ASD has reliably met our customers’ needs. The technologies and approaches may have changed over the years. But we still recruit and employ only the best of the best job candidates, and we still go the extra length proactively and reactively to ensure the success of each service engagement.

Today, we know our keys to success are our customer-driven focus, world-class employees, wealth of business and technical experience, forward-looking technology expertise, and best practice management approaches.  

We are well-positioned on the IT leading edge with in-house expertise and service/solution capabilities in the following six areas: Software/Web Development, Support/Operations, Consulting, Cyber Security, Cloud, and Staffing.

We’re expecting the next 40 years to bring four times the change we saw the last 40 years. We’re ready for the challenge, and dedicated to the success of our customers.

Competitive Differentiators

ASD’s service solutions include Software/Web Development, Operations/Support, Consulting, Cybersecurity, Cloud, and Staffing.

600+ IT projects completed successfully for 100+ government agencies demonstrates ASD’s ability to recruit and retain highly skilled technical and management professionals.

ASD has won over 20+ awards, including nine Inc. 500/5000 awards, and our technical staff have earned numerous recognitions, including leadership of two Florida Davis Productivity team awardees.

While we have graduated from the SBA 8(a) Program (though in effect for CIO-SP3 SB), we remain a SBA Certified Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), DBE, and MBE.

We are a SDVOSB and eligible to receive sole source awards under this classification, as well as for SDB.

Our services are available on the federal MAS (SIN 132-51 and 132-56) and CIO-SP3 (SDVOSB 8(a) SB) contracts and on statewide contracts in Florida, Alabama, and several other states—and through SDVOSB Sole Source or through our partners’ contract vehicles. 

We are Quality Driven with CMMI-SVC Maturity Level 3 & ISO 9001:2015 Certification and bring these best-practice approaches to bear in customer engagements as appropriate.

We maintain technology affiliations and partnerships to augment service delivery, including for Microsoft and Salesforce solutions.

We are partnered with both Large Business and Small Business IT Leaders to augment and extend our own service capabilities.
