Our Mission, Vision, and Values

Having served in the US Armed Forces, our founders believed in strong leadership, supported by thorough and intense training, to realize the full potential of all workers.

Their military experience also emphasized the quality required for performing work with the federal government and all public entities. They shared a commitment to achieving racial and social justice by employing the talents of all people, without regard to any trait other than qualifications for the work required.

With this foundation, they formed a management team ideal for achieving ground-breaking success under the Section 8(a) program of the Small Business Act. UII “graduated” from that program in 1983.

Our Current Business Reflects Our Long-Term Service In:

Continuously Harnessing Capabilities

UII’s CEO and President, Mr. Theodore A. Adams III, continues to motivate and empower our staff to reach higher levels of customer satisfaction. We provide high-quality services and products with documentation to the highest standards.
