Certifications and Contracts
Incorporated in Maryland, Decisions Oriented is an SBA-certified woman-owned small business and a minority business enterprise.
Our vision is to create safer, more efficient organizations. We aim to spark actionable insights and create technology solutions that strengthen our government clients, so they can succeed in evolving and complex operational environments.
Why Decisions Oriented?
When we founded Decisions Oriented in 2016, two things were happening in the government contracting world. First, too many agencies were frustrated that their operational questions and challenges were not being solved. Instead, they were being managed – through long, drawn out contractual engagements. Second, technology advancements were taking off and contract resources couldn’t keep up. They lacked the right skills for the right job at the right time. They didn’t have the expertise to bring solutions to bear or solve problems.
We established Decisions Oriented to do things differently.
We hire and train skilled decision engineers, solution architects, and systems engineers who have a passion for learning, for serving others, and for getting things right. We deliver (only) decision support and IT consulting services that fit within our DoD, Federal, State, and local government clients’ environment.
Collaboratively, we work with clients to clear away distractions and discover the unknown-unknowns, to deliver solutions that solve the complex, challenging problems – not just manage them.
