AITC established a program team and partnered with incumbents to support the functional area services required by the contract. The teaming partners include: AceApplications, EPIC Engineering and Consulting Group and ARCHIS Technologies.  AITC is a certified veteran owned small business located in the Orlando area that specializes in IT support services and solutions, cyber security and network operations and maintenance.

“We are excited to have been selected to support GOAA and expand AITC’s local public-sector business partnerships.  We strive to further develop Orlando based jobs and team with locally developed and competent partners.  Our team has extensive capabilities to offer and we are ready to make IT happen for GOAA,” says Gabriel Ruiz, AITC President and CEO.
