Certification & Compliance


The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) program was enacted to promote economic development and employment growth in distressed areas. We realized the importance of this program to the future of underemployed areas and became a certified HUBZone company in 2002. We continue to honor this commitment and beyond. More than 50% of our employees live in a HUBZone – far exceeding the 35% federal requirement.

SOC 2 Compliant

The Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is the most widely recognized authoritative guidance that provides service organizations a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls. TDEC successfully completed the rigorous examination of its policies and procedures under the SOC 2 Type 1 standards, demonstrating its high level of assurance and operational visibility.

TruSight Validated

TruSight is an industry-created utility that combines best practices and standardization to deliver best-in-class comprehensive third-party risk assessment data and validation. TDEC undertook the TruSight Best Practices Questionnaire’s 27 diversified control domains which are designed to meet the industry’s operational and regulatory assessment needs across information and cyber security, privacy, and operational risk. In March 2023, TDEC was validated by TruSight.

NARA Compliant

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is responsible for overseeing the management and preservation of government records and documents through compliance with its guidelines, regulations, and standards. This compliance is important to ensure that government records are properly maintained, accessible, and preserved according to legal and regulatory requirements.

TDEC meets the requirements established by NARA for the management, storage, and preservation of records and documents generated or handled in the course of our work for the government, including, but not limited to recordkeeping practices, document retention, data security and privacy, electronic records management and audit and compliance documentation.

Community Involvement

Stepping Up

Kudos to our employees who raised almost $5,500, including a $2,500 matching donation, to benefit Feeding America, Word of Victory Ministries Food Bank, and other area food banks. Plus, TDEC staff donated almost 1000 cans of non-perishable food to local food banks!

Weather Ready

As a formally-recognized Weather-Ready Nation™ Ambassador, TDEC is participating in NOAA’s initiative to improve the nation’s readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events by educating our employees and clients on how to strengthen their resilience against extreme weather.
