In March of 2005, the company received a $26,200 contract award to perform administrative and clerical support services for NASA, and they have never looked back since. Because of their outstanding performance on that contract, they received another contract award in August of 2005, for $300,000 and again in November of 2005 from NASA for $3m to perform administrative and clerical support services.

In 1998 when the company began, REDE, Inc. had only two employees, Dr. Hubert Glover and Dr. Roni Glover.

REDE has extensive experience supporting the nation’s two premier science agencies, the Department of Energy (DOE) and NASA. At NASA, which is REDE’s largest on-going contract ($57 million), the company provides 140 administrative support services personnel. Their performance at NASA’s Johnson Space Center merited them the 2007 Minority Contractor of the Year Award.
