Laboratory & Facility Operations

For more than 30 years, APTIM scientists and program specialties have been delivering laboratory support and industry-leading research for federal clients all over the United States.

Federal entities face complex regulations and restrictions around procurement, contracting, hiring, and operations while managing research and testing laboratories, slowing processes, and adding administrative burdens. Fluctuating budgets can lead to uncertainty in planning long-term research programs and investments in facilities and equipment. APTIM coordinates priorities and knowledge sharing across your network of federal labs, streamlining efforts, and closing critical gaps.
