Our Story, Your Solution

BAI, Inc., was founded in 1999 by retired Naval Officers, John Hardenbergh and Mac Williams, and a strong team of subject matter experts, with the goal of providing professional and program management services to federal, military, and Intelligence Community clientele. BAI competed for and has maintained many well-executed contracts, some with EXCEPTIONAL CPARs, some with incumbencies lasting 15 years or longer.


Our early work as a startup 8(a) and SDVOSB company involved pioneering development in arms control and treaty management. BAI excelled in this area and established a strong track record of authority as a thought leader in the arms control and treaty management space.


BAI experienced rapid growth in staff and revenue and branched out to cover many additional work areas including Administrative and Advisory Services, IT Network and Help Desk Support, Acquisition Management, Enterprise Architecture, Naval Engineering Support, Regulatory and Compliance Services, and Security Administration, garnering numerous client awards, accolades, and industry recognition.


The unifying core of our work over all contracts and task orders has been support for critical infrastructure protection and information security. BAI performs security administrative services for Private Clients and specializes in the niche information privacy and secure data management space.


BAI has teamed with subsidiary and partner BAIMMT LLC, DBA Gold Comet, to develop software products in the information privacy space. BAI has supported Gold Comet through the development of patented, secure file sharing, secure file storage, and secure messaging, operating within a secure, proprietary cloud environment. Current product development includes the integration of cutting-edge quantum security technology into these products.


Critical infrastructure protection is a leading concern for the government, private industry, and the nation today. A successful attack on a supply chain’s information sharing process, for example, can result in widespread damaging repercussions that eventually filter down to you, the individual consumer, business manager, citizen.


BAI has recognized the growing need for information privacy and protection and has made a targeted investment in building a platform that will work for you – one that will give you the privacy and peace of mind you need to build and conduct your business and manage your private communications within a protected infrastructure, conduct sound and efficient program management, and steer your enterprise toward growth and mission accomplishment.


BAI offers more than 20 years of advanced program management and administrative advisory experience, supporting the federal government, military organizations, and the Intelligence Community.

We look forward to working with you as new opportunities unfold.
