ADNET was founded in 1991 to provide information technology (IT) solutions to the science community at NASA. Building on that success, we expanded our core capabilities to Science and Engineering, IT, Education/Public Outreach, and Training/Professional Support Services, growing our Federal customer base to include the Department of Transportation, Department of Labor, Department of the Interior, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Army Corps of Engineers, to name a few. Our accomplishments have yielded several high-profile awards, including being recognized as the 2008 and 2009 NASA Goddard Small Business Contractor of the Year and nominated in 2009 and 2011 for NASA’s prestigious George M. Low Award. Our performance ensures exceptional customer support, demonstrated by our unprecedented three consecutive perfect evaluation scores of 100 at DOT and eight consecutive “Excellent” evaluation scores on our NASA SESDA II contract.
As a growing business, ADNET offers the credentials and financial solvency of a large business. Importantly, ADNET still qualifies as a small business in NAICS codes 541715 (under 1,000 employees), which falls within our core competencies of Science and Engineering support. Our customers benefit from world-class solutions delivered by proven managers. By effectively integrating advanced financial management techniques, ADNET has created an environment for continued business success and customer satisfaction, while ensuring our capability to support larger, more complex contract initiatives.
Additionally, as an ISO 9001:2008 certified and a CMMI Maturity Level 3 appraised organization, ADNET ensures standard internal processes coupled with the commitment to continuous process improvement to ensure excellence in every facet of our operations.
ADNET relentlessly pursues quality in every aspect of its business processes, management, and customer support. Each ADNET employee is committed to customer satisfaction by providing the highest quality services to their customers. To ensure quality is built into every project and performance area, our Corporate Quality Improvement Office serves as a catalyst to continuously improve our service offerings, both internally and externally in our customer support.
Our quality measures include CMMI Maturity Level 3, ISO 9001:2008, and Earned Value Management (EVM). Working in concert through an Enterprise Product and Process Improvement Program launched in 2009, we: implemented common processes; automated data collection, analysis, and reporting; expanded cost measures to include EVM techniques; and continue to measure progress and the impact of CMMI-based process improvement.
The expansion of EVM techniques facilitates project planning and re-planning, supports more effective project management, and provides performance analysis and forecasting. EVM helps clearly and objectively illuminate where a project is and where it is going – providing better insight into task cost, progress, and status. Cost Variance Analysis has been particularly successful providing early insight into potential problems.
Our ISO 9001:2008 certification provides a resource that ADNET leverages to manage large, complex, multi-million dollar contract initiatives, as well as guide daily business performance. This corporate management commitment, our ethical philosophies, and solid quality assurance policies are designed to ensure that no task is finished until the customer is fully satisfied.
ADNET’s commitment to quality is further exemplified by our achievement of CMMI Maturity Level 3. Through CMMI, we measure performance across 18 process areas, incorporating standard, repeatable processes that bear out opportunities for process improvement.
