Vantage Systems, Inc. (VSI) and Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (SGT) have successfully delivered effective aerospace and science engineering and IT services throughout the NASA community.  This experience enables VPL to leverage the skills and resources of two highly capable and valued NASA contractors, along with our infrastructure, robust business systems, financial resources, and technical and management staff.

Vantage Partners Limited (VPL) is a Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) Joint Venture (JV) formed by managing partner Vantage Systems, Inc. (VSI) and Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies, Inc. (SGT).  This JV is the result of an established Small Business Administration (SBA) Mentor-Protégé relationship between two highly successful NASA contractors.  VPL is incorporated in accordance with guidelines established by the SBA for SDBs under the 8(a) program, which encourages highly qualified emerging 8(a) corporations to form partnerships with large businesses.  This relationship facilitates information sharing and tools, processes, and procedures enhancements.

VSI and SGT began developing our mentor-protégé relationship in October 2010.  Over the past 7 years we have established a mature, on-going business relationship that enables us to combine our considerable individual strengths to provide a high-value, low-risk contracting solution.

VPL's corporate office is located in Lanham, Maryland
