Through the establishment of a proxy organization, OnPoint Consulting, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Sapient Government Services, has preserved the ability to continue delivering secure federal government work. With the recent acquisition of OnPoint’s parent company, Sapient, by Pubicis Groupe, a foreign-owned communications group, OnPoint followed all legal and federal obligations required during the transaction.
In accordance with Defense Security Service (DSS) guidelines for Foreign Ownership, Control, or Influence (FOCI), OnPoint is required to operate in a manner that effectively denies access to U.S. classified and controlled unclassified information to those people who work outside of OnPoint. OnPoint now reports to a three (3) person Board of Directors, each of whom is a United States citizen and holds appropriate clearance levels.
“This move solidifies our abilities to provide secure work in the federal space,” stated Tim Smith, President of OnPoint Consulting, Inc. “Our strengths lie in cybersecurity, infrastructure and enterprise services on both classified and unclassified networks and we look forward to continuing to provide our customers these mission-critical services.”
All OnPoint personnel and projects have been digitally and physically separated from Sapient, relocating to a facility at 2107 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Va. OnPoint has established leadership and infrastructure to ensure continued support in the civilian and defense sectors of the United States Federal Government. The client base includes the Department of Energy, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of Treasury, Department of Defense, Department of Agriculture and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
OnPoint Consulting, Inc (OnPoint) is a cybersecurity and technology firm delivering secure IT infrastructure, enterprise systems, and classified solutions for the U.S. federal government. Our specialized strategy, cyber and technology capabilities are changing the way our clients improve performance, effectively deliver results and manage risk. OnPoint holds ISO 9001:2008, ISO 20000-1:2011, ISO 27001:2013 certifications and a CMMI Maturity Level 3 rating.
