Take Bytes

  • M&A: Ace Info Solutions, a consultancy who specializes in Application Services, Cloud Services, Cybersecurity and Managed Services, and who maintains a very broad Federal Civilian set of past performance, to include direct experience supporting HHS, NIH, CDC, FDA and SAMHSA, was recently acquired by Dovel Technologies. More here.
  • Dovel subsidiary, MSC recently picked up more than $245M in contract wins to support the National Institutes of Health. More here.
  • Dovel was just named one of the NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come and our continued takeaway is that Dovel remains well-positioned for growth across the broader Federal Health and Civilian market and will be #onetowatch as we move further into 2020. Big investments do not guarantee success, but they do signify intent.
