Abacus Technology participates in several Mentor-Protégé Programs that serve as a means to develop the technical capabilities of small disadvantaged businesses and other qualifying organizations, allowing them to compete more effectively for defense-related work.
Our program is designed to provide the Federal Government with productive and competitive contractors while developing a long term teaming arrangement. It begins with a detailed functional assessment of the Protégé's infrastructure and culminates with a transfer of technology. Our development support services include: Marketing, Subcontracting, Business Planning, Financial Management, Task Order Management, Security (Facility and Personnel) Clearance Processing, Contract and Administrative Support Services, Human Resources Management, and Quality Assurance/Quality Control.
