DSFederal scores multiple award finalist spots in HHS Innovates competition and SECAF annual awards

"Our mobile apps exemplify the kind of groundbreaking technology that DSFederal consistently devotes its people, skills, and resources toward developing." – DSFederal CEO Sophia Parker

DSFederal, Inc., a Maryland-based government consulting firm, was recently recognized by both the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF) for its forward-thinking mobile services and exceptional contributions to the government contracting community and beyond.

HHS Innovates, an agency-wide competition celebrating groundbreaking government products and services with problem-solving outcomes, chose DSFederal’s Ladder Safety app as a finalist in its most recent crop of projects. The public will select the “People’s Choice” award May 29 through June 6, to be announced by Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a June awards ceremony.

SECAF honored DSFederal at its annual awards ceremony last night, recognizing DSFederal as the only government contracting firm that scored finalist spots in two categories: “Government Project of the Year” and the “Award for Excellence.”

The Ladder Safety app, developed in collaboration with CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, provides on-the-spot ladder positioning guidance using smartphone spatial orientation technology. Since its May 2013 release, more than 50 U.S. organizations and 20 countries have embraced the app as a critical resource, according to NIOSH. It has been downloaded more than 14,000 times and was ranked among the top 9 percent most downloaded applications on the Apple app store.

“Our mobile apps exemplify the kind of groundbreaking technology that DSFederal consistently devotes its people, skills, and resources toward developing,” said DSFederal CEO Sophia Parker. “We are committed to using emerging technology that helps spread life-saving health and safety information. By connecting the brightest minds with the world’s best technology, we remain dedicated to helping both our government customers and communities around the world.”

DSFederal is a recognized leader in government contracting, providing Mobile Communications, IT Solutions, Grants Program Management, and Training to a rapidly expanding base of federal customers, including the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Transportation.
