  • Program Management, Metrics & Analytics: Provide technical program management and business operations support, as well as visualization and analytics around key program metrics.

“As a non-traditional government contractor, Aquia brings a unique set of perspectives and skills to the table,” said David Maskeroni, Aquia Chief Executive Officer. “This allows us to provide federal government customers with the specific capabilities they need today.”
