About Us

It’s About the Mission.

The Government Technology & Services Coalition (GTSC) is a nonprofit, non-partisan association of innovative, agile small and midsized company CEOs that create, develop, and implement solutions for the Federal homeland and national security sector. These CEOs founded the Coalition to band together to work with their Federal partners to achieve their mission despite significant budget challenges by bringing the innovation, creativity and exceptionalism of successful small businesses to the homeland and national security mission.  These CEOs — many former government officials — joined together to share best practices, information and resources to lead the initiatives and solutions that would bring the best of our community together to protect our homeland.
Our vision is to provide an ethical, effective platform for information exchange between the public and private sector on homeland and national security ideas, technologies and innovations that will achieve mission.

Our mission is to provide exceptional advocacy, capacity building, partnership opportunities, and marketing in the Federal security space for small and mid-sized companies. We do this to support and assist our government partners achieve their critical missions with the highest integrity; best and most innovative technologies; and results-based, quality products and services to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from any terrorist attack or natural disaster.

To accomplish this we promote better dialogue with Congress and the Administration, provide clarification and representation on essential business issues, and work on behalf of the members on legislative and executive action that can impact their success.  We work with ALL of the companies that play a vital role in achieving our nation’s homeland and national security missions — small, mid-sized, and large firms — all contribute to mentor one another, partner and find the true innovation that will assure our Federal partners have the resources, ideas and capacity to continue their mission. The GTSC was formed to give small and mid-sized companies access to an A-list of advocacy, advice and services despite their limited resources. Read our platform here.
