A-TEK bolsters Federal Health capabilities, acquires CMS SPARC Prime and major FDA IT partner, Mackson

“Today, A-TEK, Inc., an information technology and scientific services and solutions company, announces the completion of its acquisition of Mackson Consulting, LLC. Mackson will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of A-TEK, and recognized as Mackson, an A-TEK Company.”

“Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, Mackson, and its highly skilled subject matter experts, is known for its exceptional work providing critical mission support to federal civilian agencies; specifically, several operating divisions within the Department of Health and Human Services including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as the Veterans Administration (VA).”

“Kathryn Freeland, CEO of A-TEK, and former Founder and CEO of RGII Technologies, Inc., a serially successful entrepreneur, will remain as CEO of the combined entity. Kathryn expressed the significance of the acquisition, saying, “This acquisition meets a key 2019 strategic goal for A-TEK and will be instrumental in bolstering our presence in the federal government market.  We are excited to broaden our range of technology solutions to meet the rapidly and constantly changing needs of our entire customer base, strengthen our industry partnerships and by our ability to help support agencies in achieving mission success, whenever, wherever, and however possible. We are extremely pleased to welcome Mackson and its employees to Team A-TEK.”

“Founded in 2010, Mackson has an outstanding reputation and is dedicated to delivering innovative solutions across a wide spectrum of technologies.  Mackson offers cutting-edge technical skills and subject matter expertise, with a powerful, expanded continuum of technology solutions anchored by DevOps, data management and analytics, systems integration, mobile applications, and enterprise architecture.”

“Mary Biear, Founder and Former Chief Executive Officer of Mackson, will remain with the company after the acquisition.  Ms. Biear stated “We are very excited to join Team A-TEK.  We complement A-TEK well and are confident that Mackson will fit right in with A-TEK’s culture and working style.  With the resources of A-TEK behind us, coupled with A-TEK’s offerings, customer base, reputation in the industry, and our successful track record and close relationships we have with our customer base, we are confident that we can maintain our track record of growth and profitability.  We are excited about the opportunities ahead.”

“Mackson brings a very successful track record to A-TEK, a customer base and capabilities that are highly complementary, and several single award Blanket Purchase Agreements and contract vehicles to fuel future growth.  The acquisition will position A-TEK to be a transformative leader in the federal health IT market, as we work to ensure health IT systems are supporting the healthcare stakeholders and the communities they serve…”

G2X TAKE: A very big move was announced yesterday as A-TEK, a CIO-SP3 Prime who delivers science and IT services and solutions across a myriad of Government health agencies has acquired Mackson, a Woman-Owned Small Business and technical and professional consultancy, who brings with them access to a number of key contract vehicles and past performance that spans the Federal Health sector, with deep expertise at FDA.

This is a key acquisition for Kathryn Freeland, and the team at A-TEK, as Mackson brings an immediate set of past performance and relationships that cut across NIH, Military Health, VA, and of course, FDA, where the company has really made a name for itself. This includes holding key positions on the FDA Joint Administration Application Development Environment Support Services BPA, prior experience as a Prime supporting CFSAN Pharmacovigilance COTS solution and IT Lifecycle activities, and in support of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Software Development efforts at FDA.
