Its members are companies with track records in USAID contract implementation. SBAIC is making itself an ever more important part of the international development community though its new leadership: Indira Ahluwalia, President of Development and Training Services (dTS), is serving as President; and Bob Otto, President and CEO of INTEGRA Government Services International, serves as Vice President.
