“Force 3 is viewed by many manufacturers as one of the most skilled Federal partners in networking and security. Our clients will benefit from strengthened engineering skills in these areas, as well as additional contract vehicles that are available to help Federal, state and local governmental clients simplify the process of acquiring the solutions they need.” –Joe Mertens, President and CEO, Sirius

Force 3 has several hundred clients, approximately 170 employees, and approximately $260 million in revenue, with their headquarters in Crofton, Maryland and an office in the Washington, D.C. area.
Our clients will benefit from strengthened engineering skills in these areas, as well as additional contract vehicles that are available to help Federal, state and local governmental clients simplify the process of acquiring the solutions they need. Specifically, Force 3 is a prime contract holder for GSA Schedule 70, NETCENTS-2, SEWP V, NIH ECS III, CIO-CS, and was just awarded the ITES-3H.
