2020 has brought some big highs and surprises for us here at REI Systems. Like all of you, we are dealing with the current reality of COVID-19 and finding innovative solutions in order to keep our employees safe and connected, and our customers supported.
Before we were social distancing, REI Systems had a lot to celebrate! We were recognized nationally as a Top Workplace for Commuters, and the Washington Business Journal ranked us 7th on the list of Largest Minority-Owned Companies in the greater D.C. area.
REI Systems also hit the ground running in 2020 by providing thought leadership via published articles. We shared our insights with Government Executive, Federal News Network, Signal, Washington Business Journal, and NextGov. Topics ranged from the untapped potential of Data Analytics to our Grants Management Survey Results, and how Augmented Reality can be used in Federal Agencies. Catch up on all of our articles here: REI in the News.
Stay Safe. Stay Smart. Stay 6 Feet Apart.
REI Systems, in partnership with NGMA and George Washington University, surveyed federal, state, and local government grant managers for the 2019 Grants Management Survey. We discussed the results at our Grants Management Breakfast forum with a stellar panel of speakers:
- Cynthia Baugh – Office of Federal Assistance Management
- Heather Alexander – National Fish & Wildlife Foundation
- Sylvia Fisher – HRSA Office of Research & Evaluation
- Tiffany Kesslar – NGMA
The survey results were cited in several media publications, and you can view the entire Annual Grants Management Survey Results presentation below.
Our most recent Government Analytics Breakfast took place on March 11th. We had the opportunity to hear from Christina Yancey from the U.S Dept of Labor and Diana Epstein from the U.S. Office of Management & Budget and their insight on “The Evidence Act- Opportunities, Implementation, and Lessons for Evidence-Based Decisions.” You can view the entire presentation here.
Even though we are still social distancing, we will be returning with a Virtual Government Analytic Breakfast titled, “How the federal government is using evidence and data to get better results,” on Tuesday May 5th. Events are free and open to the public. Interested in joining us? REGISTER HERE

The frequency of natural disasters is increasing, but the question remains, how do we better plan for the aftermath of these impending disasters? REI Systems has created a solution to the challenge of reviewing post disaster status. We will be presenting our Natural Disaster Damage Assessment Case Study at Deep Learning World Las Vegas 2020.
