A prime contractor of over 100 Federal projects and more-than-25 procurement vehicles, MicroTech offers access to 2500 vendors and a million technology products and services across the government.

Grace Flores-Hughes, Mr. Jimenez, Ms. Guajardo-Crossley, and the other Executive Advisory Board members to advance the mission of HJHP.
