History of PSC
The Voice of the Government Services Industry…Since 1972
When PSC was founded in 1972 by a group of industry leaders who recognized the emergence and growing vitality of the professional services sector, the sector itself was virtually unaccounted for as part of the U.S. economy and barely considered in the government marketplace. This despite the fact that, overall, it was growing at twice the rate of the rest of the economy and slowly but surely within the government as well. In the decades since, as the professional services sector has become an essential partner with the federal government in virtually all aspects of its operations, PSC has become its clear and consistent voice. In 2008, PSC and the Contract Services Association of America (CSA) merged to create a single, unified voice representing the full range and diversity of the government services sector.
