Our Story


Donna Scassera launched DLS in her home office in 1995, taking her skills as a professional engineer and background in program management to forge a company based on her ideals. In a period of declining federal budgets, she focused on providing our clients cost effective and quality solutions. This original value proposition has never wavered as DLS grew and market conditions changed.

DLS helps meet our customers' goals by delivering purposeful, reliable and resilient solutions.  We continually improve and adapt our services to support our customers' most important missions, applying our abilities as engineers, logisticians, analysts, technicians, and subject matter experts to achieve success for our customers.   

Today, we are a dynamic professional services company with a 20+ year heritage based on the simple mantra: people are the engine of our company.  We give our support to organizations and individuals - be it customers, colleagues, partners, or members of our communities - to fulfill their potential.
