A Brief History
Special Psychological Applications (SPA) is a sub chapter “S” Corporation and was incorporated in 1997. SPA began serving clients in 1998. At that time, SPA was a one-person, one-contract corporation. Since then, it has grown to employ 28 contract psychologists as well as four salaried personnel, and has been awarded several multi-million dollar contracts. SPA’s contractors are employed on both full-time and part-time bases and are all doctoral level psychologists who have experience working for and/or with the military as well as Special Operations Forces. Recently, SPA has received high ratings from various government agencies, to include an “exceptional” rating for our performance from our longest and largest contract.
Over the past few years
SPA’s steady growth and development occurred because it has provided quality psychologists, products, and services. This quality is the direct result of selective recruiting by the President and Director of Operations. The attributes of the psychologists chosen for employment include military experience, ability to relate with command and staff, as well as professional competence. Through the demonstration of these qualities, unparalleled commitment, and the resultant reputation, SPA has been honored to provide services and/or develop programs to diverse client organizations.
