Valuable Results

“Green Scores” across the full investment portfolio and process

Integrity partnered with TSA to achieve an “all green” scorecard three years’ straight. During the FY13 cycle, they raised the initial average score by nearly 35%, resulting in the highest-scoring DHS portfolio. Of significant scale and scope, this portfolio consisted of 15 varying types of investments spanning multiple phases of the investment life cycle.
