Tridec was established in April 2009 by a team that has worked together since 1995. Initially, our core focus was analyzing needs, designing, and developing successful software systems that have made Federal Government organizations more effective. Our initial contracts had been on the procurement, program management, and financial management communities.

Our first mission as Tridec was developing a new generation, secure, flexible, and scalable system framework to serve as a foundation for future projects. This framework positioned us for our first contract - the result of an urgent Friday evening call from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Veterans were suffering severe financial hardships because of delays in receiving education reimbursements. The VA required a secure web application for veterans to file for reimbursements electronically. This capability was needed by Tuesday (IN FOUR DAYS). By working around the clock, Tridec met the extremely short schedule and delivered the required system. This success earned Tridec the VA’s 2011 Veteran Owned Small Business Award for Extraordinary Achievement.

This experience prepared us for establishing and refining our own business processes. These processes provide us with the ability to consistently support our employees world-wide and transparently respond to any emerging requirements from our customers. We also worked with other small businesses to help them refine their processes and to partner on other projects. One of these partnerships led us to compete for the NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship contract. The incumbent company had lost their small business eligibility and helped us propose a smooth transition during the year of overlapping contracts.

Tridec was first awarded the Coastal Management Fellowship contract in June of 2011. The contract was re-competed and Tridec was awarded the follow-on contracts in 2015 and 2019. In that time, Tridec has supported employees in about 25 coastal states around the country and US Territories such as Puerto Rico, Saipan, and Guam.
