1Source Acquires New Space in the Nation’s Capital to Accommodate Growth and Expansion

1Source announces relocation of corporate headquarters

Washington, DC (March 22, 2016) – With goals of expanding, 1Source is proud to announce the company’s headquarters is now in Washington, DC. The newly renovated office space is located in the heart of the Nation’s Capital at 1250 H Street, NW. Construction has been ongoing for the 4,200 square-foot space since January, and as of this week the company has officially moved to the new location.

Coincidently, 1Source was in the same exact building in the early 2000s.  The company at the time had created a small business joint venture called Energy Enterprise Solutions, LLC (EES).  EES was awarded a $1 billion IT support contract with the Department of Energy in 2005 – one of the largest Federal IT service contracts ever awarded to a small business – and was required to develop a presence in Germantown, Maryland.  A decade later, 1Source has been rebranded, restructured, and relocated in support of expansion and growth. “This office move is the final capstone on a well-defined plan that was initiated one year ago with the acquisition of our subsidiary company [EES], consolidation of our infrastructure, and hiring of new staff designed to help us achieve a strategic advantage in rapidly changing industry. We are both excited and grateful to be in our new corporate home”, said William Teel, 1Source’s CEO and President. 

1Source has a significant presence in Washington, DC with clients such as the Department of Transportation, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, and Federal Communications Commission. Teel states, “We’ve established our new office location as part of our strategic plan to get closer to our customer base.”

1 Source joins Department of Treasury, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau as Finalist for Excellence.gov Award

1Source helps Department of Treasury, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau achieve finalist award

The American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC), a public-private partnership in the government IT community, held the 15th Annual Excellence.Gov Awards. 1Source currently provides IT support for Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) which was nominated as one of the finalists in the Excellence in Workforce/Mobility program.  Nominees in this category need to have demonstrated innovative approaches to workforce management and/or the utilization of mobile technologies to enhance the achievement of their respective missions.

The Excellence.gov Awards were instituted in 2001 with the joint sponsorship of ACT-IAC and the Federal CIO Council and have become a benchmark for superior performance in government programs. Programs from all levels of government are eligible for these awards. Nominations may be submitted by government or commercial entities, but only government programs are eligible.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau implemented a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution that reduced information technology (IT) refresh costs, improved security, and simplified operations and maintenance (O&M) activities associated with end-user computing.  When faced with a potential cost of $2M to refresh aging TTB desktop and laptop computers, the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) chose instead to implement a VDI solution.  The new VDI solution centralized desktop computing power, applications, and user data by employing virtualization technology that enabled secure remote access from multiple computing platforms.  In addition, the VDI program created a platform for the bureau to give employees access to all TTB computing resources through thin-client devices provided by TTB as well as new Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy.  TTB developed a Linux USB device that turned old desktop and laptop computers into thin client computing devices for approximately $10 per device.
