Who We Are
Defense Strategies Institute (DSI) was created to form a non-partisan, relevant, sustainable, and ethical organization operating primarily within the Department of Defense and Federal Government sectors. Our Founding Partners created DSI with the vision of using their expertise in political/military affairs, government relations and military operations to help advance mission critical success through necessary dialogue and debates amongst the respective offices and industry while at the same time helping to support those that deserve it most: our Wounded Warriors.
We are a Woman Owned/Minority Owned Small Business. Included in our team are those that have served in the Armed Services and those currently in the Reserves, professionals in international negotiations and conflict resolution, former Congressional staffers, professional symposium producers, and a variety of other professional backgrounds that, when combined, form a truly holistic operating team.
Operating guidelines: In order to maintain our non-partisan stance, DSI receives no financial investment for operating costs from any outside organization, individual or group. We adhere to the most current operating guidelines for non federal entities: Currently, these stand as:
1. Department of Defense, Office of General Council, Standards of Conduct Office: currently, SOCO ADVISORY 09-03: 7.(a)… purposes of JER 3-211 (a)(7)
2. The Office of Government Ethics (OGE), OGE Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch: currently 5 CFR part 2635 and 31 U.S.C. 1353 as it pertains to OGE Standards.
