Design To Delivery, Inc., a consulting firm supporting private companies and government agencies engaged in federal procurement and government contracting, officially opened its first office outside of its Washington, D.C. region in the WestGate @ Crane Technology Park on Tuesday.
“It is critical for our company to be close to our customer, and the WestGate is perfect for that, so we’re excited to be here,” said Molly K. Gimmel, Design To Delivery, Inc.’s Executive Vice President and Co-Founder.
“We are looking forward to a long relationship with our customer and our employees here in Indiana.”
A certified woman-owned business physically headquartered in Bethesda, MD adjacent to Washington, D2DInc will employ 35 professionals in its southern Indiana operation, with eight employees working in their 2,000 sq. ft. WestGate facility and the others in NSWC facilities. The company has annual revenues upwards of $5 million.
“Design To Delivery, Inc. has successfully worked with more than 300 private sector clients in assisting them in all aspects pertaining to government contracting, so we believe they will be an excellent fit both with the existing commercial defense companies currently in WestGate and also to firms across Indiana,” said Donald Schulte, executive director of the WestGate tech park. “We expect D2DInc to add a new dimension of services to WestGate and we welcome them here.”
According to Gimmel, D2DInc’s service experience covers both civilian and defense agencies and a myriad of industries. “Our expertise includes strategic planning, business development/marketing, proposal development/management, pricing, contract administration, recruiting, and marketing communications,” she said.
Services provided by D2DInc include contract administration; cost and technical proposal preparation; development of indirect cost rates in accordance with Cost Accounting Standards; Federal Supply Schedule contract application, negotiation, and administration; opportunity identification and capture management; and training.
D2DInc’s government services division provides services to public-sector organizations in the areas of acquisition/procurement support, contract administration and closeout, development and administration of small business outreach programs, training, administrative support, and marketing communications materials.
The company began moving into WestGate on April 1, and the facility is now fully operational, according to Gimmel.
