WASHINGTON, D.C. — SDV INTERNATIONAL celebrated the close of a successful 2018 that included several wins, including a highly competitive contract awarded by the U.S. State Department to provide Linguist Support Services across the Near East, as well as South Asia and Central Asia.
This most recent award by the State Department follows after years of extensive investments made by SDV INTERNATIONAL in the Middle East to support the State Department. This highly competitive bid process responded to the State Department’s solicitation for up to $415 million in contract support services in support of the Bureau of Near East Asian Affairs and the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs.
In an interview, SDV INTERNATIONAL’S president, Jason Roys, made the following statement:
“We admire and respect the hard-working and talented staff at the State Department. They have a complex mission in a world that is constantly changing. I work on a regular basis with our teams in the region, and I am humbled by how hard they work to support the Mission. I’ve been repeatedly impressed over the years by the fact that members of our team have been serving in Iraq longer than any of the senior or mid-level diplomats posted there. Their support is mission essential. I can clearly see this when I attend meetings in Iraq. The State Department depends on our people to advance the Mission, and they have been very generous with their praise of our work. We are truly honored to have the opportunity to expand our role in the region.”
SDV INTERNATIONAL’s staff is active with national and global efforts to support US diplomats, the military and various national security and international development stakeholders. SDV INTERNATIONAL’s experts, some of whom are retired senior diplomats, lead projects with the State Department’s Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), the Small Business Association of International Companies (SBAIC), the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) and other industry organizations.
