Company History

Social & Scientific Systems, an employee-owned company, has supported public and private sector programs since 1978. We contribute significantly to improving public health around the world.

Whether we are supporting HIV/AIDS clinical trials around the world, providing program monitoring and evaluation services in Africa, collecting epidemiologic data in Europe, coordinating AIDS conferences in the Caribbean and Africa, or analyzing Medicare data in the United States, we consistently provide the highest quality support available. We are committed to conducting ourselves ethically, honoring our commitments, acting proactively and responsively, and delivering excellent services—on time and at good value.

Social & Scientific Systems was founded by Herbert J. Miller, Denis Ables, and Mary Frances leMat in 1978 as a small, minority-owned business. No longer a small business, SSS is now 100 percent employee-owned with approximately 500 employees working in the United States, Africa and Asia. As we grew, we acquired four similar organizations: Infinibyte®; TvT Associates, Inc.; CODA, Inc; and ClinStats Data Group. After 30 years, we have proven to be a viable enterprise with a diverse portfolio focused on public health. The company was a proud participant and graduate of the Small Business Administration's 8(a) program (1979-1988). We help clients reach their goals by providing research, information technology, and clinical support. Social & Scientific Systems has offices in Silver Spring, Maryland; Durham, North Carolina; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Kampala, Uganda.

Our mission is to improve public health worldwide by providing technical, research, and program management services to government and other clients. This support enables policymakers, medical professionals, communities, and citizens to improve public health knowledge and to mitigate the effects of devastating diseases, such as HIV/AIDS.

We achieve our mission through significant contributions to public health research, international health programs, and health information dissemination. And, we do this in the context of our four core values: exceptional employee-owners, outstanding client service, integrity and viability, and giving back to the community.
