NetCentrics provides the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies with leading IT services including IT Strategy, mission applications, infrastructure and platform services, cloud solutions, service delivery and cybersecurity.
But that’s just what we do, not who we are. We are people who are engaged in some of the most challenging IT work on the planet, working in a family-oriented culture, bringing all of our expertise to bear every day to build, sustain, support and protect mission-critical systems. As much as possible, we are determined to enjoy every minute of it. These three “E” words – engage, expertise, enjoy – define our work and our culture.
But perhaps we should start at the beginning…
NetCentrics was founded by two friends in 1995 who were convinced that computer systems and networks would drive the future of information technology. Within a few years of our founding, our teams were designing and installing one of the first computer networks deployed in the Pentagon. Over the past 20 years we’ve grown by building an incredible culture for our employees and by delivering only the highest quality work for and with our customers.
We’ve grown as demand for computer technologies and integrated systems has grown. Our teams were there on 9/11, restoring operations at HQDA within a day after the attack, for which three of our employees won a Commander’s citation. Our teams led the massive EITSD system consolidation at WHS, and played a leadership role in the consolidation of EITSD and ITA into the first Joint Service Provider. Our teams built and managed computer network defense and cybersecurity solutions for multiple agencies. Within the JSP we’ve led the transition to platform services and virtualization. Through our history we’ve been known for our ability to say “yes”, to get the tough jobs done on time and on budget, and for our excellent customer service.
This means we are constantly working to serve the armed forces, but also a wide range of government agencies, which provide programs and services that meet the needs of all our citizens.
Our management team has one important task: sustaining and building on a culture that has led to over 20 years of sustained growth and exceeding customer expectations. We strive to identify the best people, inspire them to deliver the best service and help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
