HCP Associates secured this new contract after demonstrating expertise through a competitive public solicitation process. The company also holds a longstanding relationship with the university, having collaborated on numerous projects over the years.

HCP Associates’ Managing Partner Sean Coniglio said, “Over the last 38 years, we had the honor to be a partner of the University of South Florida. The founder of our firm, R.
