Adding Services to Better Serve our Customers
In 2016, Concordant added Cyber and Information Technology solutions lines of business. Our journey into Cyber and IT began with SharePoint Development and Data Mining and Visualization support to the Federal Aviation Administration. Over the past several years, our Cyber and IT solutions have expanded to include multiple disciplines ranging from Cybersecurity to Cloud services, employed across several agencies of the federal government.
Certified to Serve
In 2019, Concordant was certified as a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. Concordant then domesticated as a Wyoming company headquartered in beautiful Laramie, with the goal of providing quality professional opportunities for people residing in rural and economically disadvantaged areas. Accordingly, in 2023 Concordant earned its certification from the Small Business Administration as a Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) company.
Consistent with our origins, values, and business practices, Concordant earned the Department of Labor’s Platinum Award in its HIREVets Medallion Program. The Platinum Award is the highest designation available, and is objectively determined by the number of veterans hired and retained by an employer. Concordant is the only company holding this designation in the state of Wyoming.

Concordant “pays it forward” with its local community and builds tomorrow’s leaders in the federal government contracting space by carefully identifying, recruiting, training, and developing high potential talent in Laramie, Wyoming. Concordant’s paid Professional Internships generally include graduate or post-graduate university students or similarly accomplished professionals that have the demonstrated ability to excel in the federal business space, but have not had the opportunity to experience the industry since Wyoming has so little presence in professional Federal Contracting circles. Concordant created the opportunity for Cowboys to gain that experience in 2020, relocating its headquarters from the nation’s capital to Wyoming. Concordant has created dozens of professional job opportunities that can be performed fully remotely from Wyoming, with in-person local support provided. In close partnership with the University of Wyoming as well as the state’s Department of Workforce Services, the talented candidates in our program get exposure to six distinct functional areas of a complex, national contracting operation. They have 1v1 opportunities to work with leaders in technology, finance, program management, marketing, HR, and executive leadership positions. With over a dozen local candidates having participated in our program, Concordant is proud of our commitment to the Equality State and excited to benefit from the notable talent we’ve helped develop as they move into lucrative, full-time professional positions serving the Federal Government on our workforce.
