Vendor Performance ReportTexas Department of Public Safety

Our partnership with Information Discovery Systems, LLC (IDS) dates back to 2011 at which time we had to quickly implement their services to meet our customers’ needs.  Not only were they phenomenal during this time period, they have since exceeded our expectations.  We’ve developed a great partnership and their dedication to providing a valuable service has been instrumental in our success.  They have been very attentive to detail in their investigative reports and are clearly committed to excellence.  Over the years of working together, they have been a valuable asset in brainstorming new ideas to meet hiring challenges.  I can’t speak highly enough about IDS!
