About ASTA

The ASTA Group History

The ASTA Group, LLC (ASTA) is a woman-owned small business created in 2007 to better support organizations with specific training and development needs.

In 2007, Dr. Linda Brent created The ASTA Group, a woman-owned small business, to fulfill the training and development needs of government and industry clients. In the small town of Pensacola, Florida, ASTA has thrived. Through the years, our location next to Pensacola Naval Air Station and Hurlburt Field has provided many unique opportunities to collaborate with the Navy and the Air Force. However, our work extends beyond the Florida state lines to the national and international stage. Besides our work with the military, ASTA also collaborates with a variety of industry partners, both large and small. We have multiple strategic relationships with other aerospace and defense companies.

Our specialties include:

The ASTA Group can meet your training, analysis, and on-site needs!

As a woman-owned small business (WOSB), our customers can meet their goals with confidence in ASTA’s record of strong performance.  While trusting your requirements to a small business can be daunting for a large Government agency, we work collaboratively and cooperatively with our customers to support your mission. Additionally, our WOSB status allows work to be directed to us in order to meet your requirements with a short turn around for performance.

Collaboration Using Our Contract Vehicles and Codes

Through contract vehicles, ASTA offers simplified acquisition. ASTA also classifies its services using specialized codes.

We can support your business as a partner, contractor, or subcontractor as a woman-owned small business. ASTA holds three contracts (GSASeaPort-E, and EPASS) and one industry membership (TReX) in order to offer simplified acquisition for our government customers. 

In addition, we also have experience providing professional services to military and non-military government agencies through the GSA Professional Services Schedule (PSS). Our PSS Special Item Numbers cover the NAICS codes that classify ASTA’s broad range of services.
