We start with friendly, courteous service and a "can-do" attitude. We set up projects in a matter of hours or a day or two at most, not weeks, so we can start addressing your concern immediately. We invoice promptly and use straightforward billing practices with no markup on project-related expenses and no administrative labor charges. Our invoices are crystal clear and easy to understand. We respond to your emails and phone calls promptly. These practices ensure that your concern is handled in a smooth and timely manner from start to finish.
As a small business we offer the advantage of very fast setup of your project so we can get started right away. Most importantly, DAT also provides much faster turnaround on work products than other companies. Finally, DAT promises responses to client communications measured in terms of minutes and hours rather than days.

In addition, the client is notified when any interim results are obtained that may be immediately useful to the client.
The field of risk assessment is very dynamic, with critical changes and new developments occurring on almost a daily basis. DAT staff stay abreast of these changes so that our work products are truly state-of-the-science and consistent with the latest regulatory requirements.
Any project with DAT starts with a crystal clear, mutual understanding of our client's overall business objective. The technical work is then designed to support the achievement of this objective.
