DPRA is a global leader in developing the software and systems that keep the world running smoothly, safely, and efficiently. We specialize in developing the most advanced and creative solutions to complex logistical, technical, environmental, and management problems.
DPRA was founded in 1961 in Manhattan, Kansas. Initially our focus centered on agriculture and serving as a research and consulting firm to the U.S. government. The letters in our name stood for Development, Planning, Research & Analysis, but today we are best known by our acronym DPRA.

• Management Strategy
• Laboratory Science (ZymaX)
