About Us

Organizations thrive when strong leaders make wise decisions. We unleash insight so national security leaders can do just that.

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 met by contractors who insisted on complex, protracted engagements to manage the problems. Second, technology advancements were taking off; and personnel who couldn’t keep up were missing out – for the long haul.

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, discover the unknown-unknowns, and create solutions that provide actionable insights for essential next steps. We deliver solutions that solve the complex, challenging problems so our clients no longer require long, protracted contractor support where the problems are being managed and not solved.

Our Vision

Our vision is to freshen up GovCon. The federal government contractor world is set in its ways. It’s inefficient. We aim to be the fresh air that inspires new ways of thinking about, and better ways of doing, GovCon.

The DO Decisions

Community and Recognition

We believe that every person we work with can one day be an employee, a partner, a competitor, or a client.  We proudly cultivate our “tribe,” our community of professionals that we enjoy working with to deliver impactful solutions to some of government’s most vexing problems.
