At ATI, we’re fortunate to be surrounded by men and women who served our country and now work alongside us. In fact, more than 20% of our company are veterans, and 52% of our leadership have served in the military. The Department of Labor recognized ATI for the second year in a row with the HIRE Vets Platinum Medallion for our commitment to hiring veterans.
In 2020, we celebrated our fourth consecutive year on the SC Best Places to Work list! The award is especially meaningful because the process includes extensive feedback through an anonymous survey completed by our team members. This process also takes a look at company policies, practices, benefits, and demographics to determine South Carolina’s best employers.
ATI is delighted to congratulate Ashley Heffernan, ATI’s Senior Manager of Business Services, on her acceptance into the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Charleston Class of 2021.
“UTIC is an important resource for innovative undersea and maritime technology solutions,” said Molly Donohue Magee, UTIC’s executive director. “The Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) allows for streamlined contracting, ensuring the government can expeditiously get needed technology prototype solutions.

While the information surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic is changing rapidly, our commitment to the health and safety of those around us remains steadfast. That’s why we’ve taken the One Region Ready pledge to prioritize the safety and protection of our team and our community.

“MTEC is proud to be a partner with USAMRDC to accelerate the development of solutions for COVID-19 and to protect and heal those who serve,” said Kathy Zolman, MTEC Director of Program Operations.
Impressed by the rapid innovation of the commercial sector, defense officials are adapting to secure more participation from tech-focused firms. To do this, they are using a special contracting capability called Other Transaction Authority (OTA) to streamline the partnering process and cut costs to a level where small entrepreneurial outfits can participate.
Through an RPP, the MTEC aims to create the virtual wards, or “cohorts of patients that are managed together and with continuity by the tele-critical care teams.” The hope is that they can be deployed in traditional health care facilities such as hospitals and clinics, as well as non-traditional and temporary health care facilities like field hospitals and gymnasiums.
