DSG designed and maintains numerous government Web sites for the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, and especially the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Software engineers and Web designers manage the security and 508 compliance for numerous .gov Web sites and conduct 508 compliance training and handle several Web services to operate government Web sites. Programmers also design and develop free-standing research and resource center databases.

Featured Project – National Registry of Evidence-based Practices and Programs

For SAMSHA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), DSG developed two new Web-based applications: a workflow application to facilitate the internal review process for NREPP programs, and a public-facing database driven Web site that allows the public to read hundreds of reviews of interventions that have been submitted to NREPP over the years.
