PROF SSIONAL SERVICES
QED's technology services encompass an array of data analysis and data visualization, digital records management, and other technology-focused pursuits.
DATA ANALYSIS & VISUALIZATION

Our administrative support includes executive level administration, drafting correspondence, meeting coordination, answering calls and emails, calendar maintenance, and clerical tasks.
We connect with stakeholders, including our employees, agency customers, and interagency and intergovernmental bodies to get a sense of the wider context that surround objectives.
The research we conduct, coupled with the analysis and reporting on findings support policy development, organizational efficiency, and strategic communication.
We draft documents, emails, memos, and other correspondence with appropriate style and grammar; proofread and edit policy documents and reports; update, maintain and distribute document templates; and maintain call logs.
