“Working with the FSBDC has been a boost in growing the business as a government contractor and in becoming even better at financial management.”
Founded in 2008, Leneer Data Assurance Solutions, Inc. (LDAS) is professional services consulting firm with offices in Jacksonville and Washington, DC.  Adrian Gentry and Robert Lester have established a business with three core operational areas: Medical and IT Staffing, Information Assurance, and Management Training and Consulting.
When Paul Arrington, a consultant at the FSBDC at the University of North Florida, started meeting with the firm had already been making its mark as an SBA 8(a) Business Development Program government contractor. LDAS had already achieved success in obtaining several prime contract and subcontract awards.  
Building upon a twelve-year background in health care IT, Lester had developed a strong core team of professionals well qualified in financial IT, sales, management, marketing and business development.
Arrington consulted with the firm as it sought to expand its ability to serve the federal market by seeking HUBZone certification, suggesting next steps through the HUBZone certification process. Arrington also was present as the firm presented its capabilities during a briefing before a federal agency and was able to assist the firm by providing feedback regarding that briefing. The firm also benefited from a financial review and analysis performed by Arrington, which helped in identifying ways to increase the overall profitability.

Leneer Data Assurance Solutions, Inc. is now both 8(a) and HUBZone certified, is a GSA IT Schedule 70 contractor.
