Northrop Grumman Corporation Awards DQSI
On December 8, 2011 Northrop Grumman Corporation awarded DQSI a ” World Class Supplier Award” for the company’s integral role in the design and technical leadership of the world’s largest ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) implementation.
DQSI has the superior ability to find, hire, and retain qualified staff; as well as their ability to provide staff at competitive prices; and meet the DIMHRS program socio-economic goals. DQSI provides key resources with specific skill set in PeopleSoft Global Payroll. This skill set is difficult to locate due to so few PeopleSoft implementations that deploy the Global Payroll module. The resources provided are now considered subject matter experts in military pay. They are high caliber professionals with demonstrated ability to lead teams and mentor team members in this challenging functional area. DQSI’s employees are key to some of the most difficult as well as visible aspects of the program and they present themselves in a manner that reflects extraordinarily well on Northrop Grumman.
