ASET 2013 Year in Review | 2013 December 31 | Baltimore, MD
In a relentless pursuit of excellence, ASET Partners completed both Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 3 Version 1.3 Development assessment and ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System assessment in 2013. CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides ASET with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve performance. ISO 9001:2008 ensures ASET Partners continues to develop and optimize procedures and processes in the execution of operations and continually focuses on what is important to clients. These certifications reflect a corporate dedication to the infusion of quality and efficiency in the way ASET does business. Combined, these certifications formalize the processes and practices ASET has established to help all our clients save time and money as well as ensure they remain competitive and better equipped to meet future challenges.
The corporate philosophy that Good Work Begets Good Work guided ASET in its growth throughout 2013, with significant growth with both existing client relationships and new client engagements. Organic growth within the Department of Commerce (DOC) led to new ASET opportunities in National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). ASET also brought a unique skillset to new clients in the Department of Defense (DOD) and Intelligence Community (IC) with new engagements beginning in 2013 with the US Marine Corp (USMC) and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). Both of these engagements leverage ASET experience in delivering on mission critical technology programs by combining technology with business process, management engagement, and organization specific operating constraints to deliver major impact technology quickly and cost efficiently. ASET’s extensive experience in aiding organizations develop their business processes, Enterprise Architecture, and formalize their program management strategy lead to new engagements with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Health and Human Service (DHHS) Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2013. Additionally, ASET continued the growth of its footprint at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with team wins on three major enterprise vehicles spanning enterprise systems engineering, continuous diagnostics and monitoring (CDM), and Eagle II.
As corporate experience and lessons learned continues to expand, ASET has actively positioned itself to provide back to the improvement of the community at large. In 2013 ASET joined and became an active member in the Agile Leadership Network. Also in 2013, ASET was also nominated as a finalist in the Small and Emerging Contractor Advisory Forum (SECAF) Government Contractor of the year awards. ASET was independently nominated for this award.

ASET 2012 Year in Review | 2012 December 31 | Baltimore, MD
The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) empowerment contracting program encourages economic development in “HUBZones” to promote economic development and employment growth in distressed areas of the country. Unlike other set aside preferences, HUBZones serve the community at large – not just a few small business owners. HUBZone certified companies are truly community-oriented and support local communities.
“HUBZone represents a goal we have had since day one- sharing beltway dollars with the distressed neighborhoods where many of our senior leadership grew up. This designation will help ASET grow in a manner that is consistent with our corporate goal of bringing beltway employment to our home communities as well as bringing the best brainpower from across the country.” – Tom Gangi, President
ASET also expanded into a number of new client agencies including the Department of Commerce (DOC) National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Technical Information Service (NTIS), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Bombing Prevention (OBP), and a commercial client in the Center for Internet Security (CIS). In addition, ASET achieved one of its longtime goals to establish a presence within the intelligence community. ASET Partners was awarded two contracts providing cost estimation and budgetary support within the intel community. These efforts allow ASET to bring expertise and cross-Department lessons learned in information security, program management and program management office (PMO) implementation, full lifecycle information technology management, and strategic organizational management support to a host of new clients.
Throughout 2012 ASET continued to build upon a series of awards and acknowledgements from clients, including those within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As a result of continued dedication to excellence, ASET Partners received an Innovation Award from the Under Secretary of the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) for innovation and excellence for the improvement of technology infrastructure and the implementation of agile development practices within the DHS system engineering lifecycle, acquisition processes, and technology landscape. The award was received for “establishing an innovative and new approach to designing, developing, and testing information systems, and identifying areas of reuse, consolidation, interoperability, and integration, hereby reducing the cost, project risk, and the time required to deploy capabilities”.

ASET 2011 Year in Review | 2011 December 31 | Baltimore, MD
“2011 was a year of foundation building for ASET. We achieved a number of strategic milestones, acquired a number of highly strategic new clients, and continued to deliver top results to all our clients” – Patrick Ansaldi, Vice President
2011 was a successful year for ASET Partners, highlighted by the realization of numerous corporate initiatives and growth into a number of new client Agencies. Strategically, ASET Partners was awarded a prime Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) 70 (commonly GSA IT 70) from the General Service Administration (GSA). GSA IT70 grants government agencies direct access to ASET Partners subject matter experts in the information technology areas of Network Engineering, Systems Administration, System Integration, Network Security, Lifecycle Operations and Maintenance, and Program Management.
Additionally, after participating in a rigorous selection process, ASET Partners was awarded a position in the University of Maryland, Baltimore County’s (UMBC) Cyber Incubator Program. UMBC is a national leader in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education, and has been designated a “Center of Academic Excellence” by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). By locating at UMBC, ASET Partners increases access and opportunity to attract top engineering and cyber talent in the country. In addition, the UMBC location (less than 15 miles from Ft. Meade, NSA, DISA and the US Cyber Command) affords ASET additional cyber business opportunities and partnerships.
2011 also illustrated ASET’s continued commitment to calculated, organic growth and excellence with expansion of efforts into the Department of Energy (DOE), and Homeland Security. As ASET grows, the commitment to delivering excellence is further strengthened as illustrated in a number of 2011 awards and recognitions including and the 2011 ESI CEO Award. At the 2011 annual ESI WebEOC Users Conference in Georgia, the ASET/ NICC Team received this Award for innovation and excellence in WebEOC implementation. ASET Partners has extensive experience in implementing WebEOC throughout the entire development lifecycle, including use case as well as business requirements documentation, software customization and follow-on deployment support. ASET Partners successfully managed the development and currently administers one of the largest instances of WebEOC within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). This instance of WebEOC was implemented within six months to replace a failing legacy system and saved DHS an estimated $8M in lifecycle costs for the resulting system.
“2011 represents our team’s continued dedication and focus to solving our clients’ most complex problems with efficient and effective solutions. Our successes throughout the year have strengthened the foundation of ASET capabilities. We have some exciting initiatives queued for 2012 and look forward to bringing our corporate talent and experience to new and existing clients.” – Tom Gangi, President
