VSolvit, LLC

VSolvit is a SBA certified AASDB technology service provider. We specialize in the integration of geographical information systems with information technology. We have offices located in California, the Midwest, and Washington, DC.

In 2010 the US Department of Agriculture's Rural Development office designated GAS procurement as an 8(a) set aside. VSolvit competed and won this five-year $15 million contract and within our first year of performance we demonstrated how small business can provide outstanding service for our customers. From this VSolvit was national recognized as the USDA's Woman Owned Business of the Year. From this contract the VSolvit team came up with an innovative application that integrates RD project success stories with social media platforms, such as Flicker and You Tube. This ingenious web application enhances the USDA RD's community outreach efforts and leverages GIS to enable personalized and location-based data sharing. Our success story with USDA RD opened the door for us and other agencies including USDA. The Know Your Farmer Know Your Food, or KYF2 web application developed by VSolvit shows how USDA is helping communities get better access to healthy foods. KYF2 was launched by USDA's deputy secretary, Dr. Merrigan at the US Whitehouse.

Our success story was made possible by the hard work and dedication of VSolvit team members, the generous support of our customers, and the effective policies of the SBA. Thank you SBA and together we will reignite the American Growth Engine.
