SMS has provided advanced technology products and services to the Federal Government since 1976. During that time the Government’s technology needs have evolved dramatically in scope and sophistication. While developing the expertise to meet these challenges, the company simultaneously implemented ISO standards and CMMI practices to strengthen our engineering processes, service delivery model, and organizational policies and procedures, thus providing the infrastructure to consistently deliver our contractual commitments on time with greater cost-effectiveness.
SMS has also formed alliances with fortune 500 corporations and talented small businesses. These partnerships are a valuable asset enabling SMS to effectively compete for large government contracts. These opportunities provide a platform for significant growth while expanding and diversifying our areas of expertise. Throughout our 40 plus year history, SMS has successfully performed on nearly 2 billion dollars in government business.
Today, SMS is a dynamic, nimble systems integration firm providing professional services and IT solutions to the Federal Government throughout the nation, and in many countries around the world. We are viewed by our customers as a trusted partner with a track record of successful past performance and superior customer value. Our fundamental business strategy is building long-term client relationships, and building and nurturing the talented, cleared professionals that have made the company successful for over 40 years. In an industry notorious for high employee turnover, SMS is proud of its solid employee retention rate. The average length of service for all employees is 8 years, while the average tenure of all members of the management team is in excess of 20 years.
SMS is quality driven, appraised at CMMI Level 3 DEV, Level 3 SVCS, and ISO 9001:2008 registered. Over 90% of our technical staff hold clearances at Top Secret Level or above.
