Watershed has continued to provide these services to our first customer over many contracts and task orders. We have expanded our service offerings into other IT focus areas with MSC, continuing on to other Navy commands and then into the greater DoD and Federal Civilian sectors. Our managed and intelligent growth strategies have allowed us to maintain our ability to provide personalized and reliable support to our customers while continually enhancing our capabilities as we grow. We never take out customers for granted, and are very proud that we still provide significant support to our first customer.
Watershed is certified as a Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and as an 8(a) with the Small Business Administration’s (SBA). Additionally we are certified by the Department of the Navy and SPAWAR as a Corporate Fully Qualified Corporate Navy Validator (C0161).
