GovCIO, a technology company government contractor with more than $1 billion in government contracts, officially opened its first Charleston office and high-tech lab strategically located less than a mile away from Joint Base Charleston and U.S. Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic.

A ribbon cutting and reception was held recently at 1217 Remount Road in North Charleston with members of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, AFCEA Low County Chapter and other stakeholders in attendance.

The location will provide a convenient location for the GovCIO team to host technical demonstrations for its government partners and provide a flexible space to collaborate on existing and future projects, said James Buckingham, vice president, Defense Services Group at GovCIO.

“The primary drivers behind this office location were proximity to NIWC/Joint Base Charleston and the ability for the building to contain both an office and a lab capable of providing a significant amount of power for our highly-technical development projects,” Buckingham said.

The GovCIO office will support up to 14 employees with several more working at lab stations, Hall said. Twelve employees relocated to the Charleston area as new hires and GovCIO anticipates adding several new full-time positions to the Noth Charleston office as the company continues to grow.

“This move signals our enduring commitment to our partners, including the U.S. Naval Information Warfare Center and we are excited about this next chapter and the expanded opportunities this new office brings,” stated John Anderson, GovCIO sector president, National Security Services, in a press release.

Over the past year, GovCIO has grown to over 3,000 employees globally, with annual revenue increasing by 17%. The company has contracts with the Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Postal Service, U.S. Military, IRS, NASA, the National Institute of Health and more.

On May 2, the company announced it was one of five awardees on a five-year $1.5 billion total value contract with the Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AOUSC) Judiciary IT Services (JITS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to provide a full range of IT services, technical and management expertise, information technology solutions and capabilities and nationwide judiciary support.
