ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES

The administrative support function is the backbone of most offices. QED believes investment in skilled resources to support these activities is a value we provide, both in productivity increases and ease of day-to-day operations. Maintaining calendars for personnel, conference rooms, and equipment ensures that the office operates efficiently. Maintaining office files, including documents and reports, is also important to ensure that information is stored and available to those who need it. It is particularly important to ensure that information is secured and protected. These office support functions allow an organization to meet all of the Federal requirements, while efficiently and effectively meeting the programmatic mission.
