Government Services

MSA, P.C. is committed to our core values of Knowledge, Service, Dedication and Respect. We are a Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and Certified Veteran Enterprise (CVE) for federal contracting and a Certified Small Business Enterprise (SBE) in accordance with the requirements of the Virginia Department of Small Business & Supplier Diversity.

Our firm has been in business since 1973. We have been serving U.S. government agencies since the mid-1980s throughout the United States and in OCONUS locations such as Djibouti, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Panama Canal. MSA’s government projects have ranged in size from those with a construction cost of $250,000 to $450,000,000. Our Government Services Division has RAPIDGate for Hampton Roads Naval Installations.

Our government experience includes both Design-Build and Design-Bid-Build projects. We recognize that government agencies conduct business differently than private developers and we are accustomed to reacting quickly to changing missions and priorities. MSA’s Government Services Division is focused solely on serving our government clients and we view ourselves as a direct extension of agency staff.
