Two digital services companies based in Northern Virginia have been awarded a $14.5 million contract from the US Department of Treasury in a joint venture.

DMI, based in Tysons Corner, and Dynamic Solutions Technology, based in Gainesville, developed the joint venture Dynamic Digital Transformation (DDT). It will support mobility management services at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), an independent bureau of the Department of Treasury that supervises and regulates national banks and federal savings associations. This means helping manage its smartphones, laptops, tablets and other devices.

DMI has been managing a contract with the OCC since 2019, said DJ Oreb, the company’s president of managed services. When the OCC flipped the contract, which is common, DMI decided to partner with Dynamic Solutions Technology to continue working with the OCC, he said.

“By partnering and doing a joint venture with Dynamic Solutions, one, we’re able to maintain our existing work,” Oreb said. “But then we’re also able to bring a new flavor and a new piece of a company and ideas in order to help continue to evolve and grow OCC.”

DDT will be supporting end-to-end mobile device use, Oreb said. This means involvement in every step, from handing out devices to managing IT support.

The joint venture has already started to implement and build on some services, including tracking expenses related to mobile devices for the OCC. This could include finding phone lines that are not being used but for which the office is still being billed, Oreb said.

Improving the experience of these users, which would be staff at the OCC, is also a priority, Oreb said. When their experience is improved, it not only betters their work, but also saves money for the taxpayer. Relevant upgrades include making sure devices are running at optimal speeds and phasing out old equipment, Oreb said.

DMI, founded in 2002, works in both the public and private sectors. Because of this, DMI can provide more than the average federal contractor, Oreb said. The company can bring commercial best practices, while knowing the security needs and the program management rigor that comes with working with the federal government.

“DMI is very unique in the ability to be able to bring those [commercial practices], but then wrap them to fit within the federal space because we deal in both spaces on a consistent basis,” Oreb said.

Oreb said he’s looking forward to continuing working with the OCC while also bringing in another company with a different perspective and fresh eyes.

“It’s kind of like when you have a living room for five years, and one day you wake up and you’re like, ‘Hey, we’ve been doing this really great,” Oreb said. “‘It works, but now I’ve got to add this plant and I’ve got to add this picture. I’ve got to make this look and feel a little bit different.’”
