RP Professional Services and Highlight are proud to announce the creation of the joint venture, Opus Federal. This partnership is in direct connection to our SBA-approved Mentor-Protégé. Opus Federal combines the strengths of both organizations including our joint expertise, customer knowledge, capabilities, and delivery models to provide optimized, end-to-end Development and Modernization and Missions Solutions including Software Development, Health IT, Communications, and International Development support services. Both companies have been servicing the federal government for over a decade across defense, national security, international development, and health sectors.

RP Professional Services is an SBA certified 8a and a CVE verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) providing Software Development, Cybersecurity, Mission Support, Enterprise IT, and Mission Solutions serving agencies including SBA, USAID, and NIH.

“The Opus Federal joint venture is the exciting next step in the already strong relationship between Highlight and RP.
