Like many small entities, ITSI has grown from performing as a subcontractor to having our own prime contracts along with a mix of subcontracts for several agencies. ITSI has moved from having contracts that were short term, to having the majority of contracts with long-term commitments, additionally, our customers use those contracts for contract modifications to add work.
In the Federal arena the biggest customers are the U. S. Intelligence Community (IC) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) where ITSI provides research and system’s development to address road safety. In the State arena, we provide support to advancing Maryland Transit’s program management capabilities, support the refresh of the State of Maryland’s Systems Development Lifecycle process, and provide program management support to the Maryland Department of Information Technology in support of an extensive PeopleSoft deployment. Additionally, ITSI was instrumental in successfully deploying the new Maryland Pension Management System.
During our 21 years in business, ITSI has had the opportunity to provide a wide range of support to our customers. At the state level, ITSI has supported Ez-Pass, Intelligent Transportation Systems and taught systems engineering to DOT organizations across the Continental US and Alaska.
