DynCorp International is a proud supporter of the 2013 Government Procurement Conference being held July 24, 2013, at the Arlington Convention Center in Arlington, Texas. DI will be sponsoring the event, participating as an exhibitor and sponsoring the attendance of 60 veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses.
The conference aims at expanding public sector business for small business. Attendees will include Department of Defense prime contractors, municipalities, counties and school districts. Procurement specialists will be on hand to educate small-business owners on what local, state and federal agencies and their subcontractors look for when selecting suppliers.
DynCorp International Supports Veteran and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses
Year after year, DI is recognized for its commitment to supporting veterans. Through the work of its Small Business Office, DI has earned several awards for supporting veteran-owned businesses and service-disabled veteran-owned business.
For the seventh year in a row, DI was named one of the U.S.’s five best defense companies for veteran-owned businesses. The list, compiled by the National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) and featured on the cover of the April 2013 issue of Vetrepreneur magazine, recognizes corporations that most successfully engage the nation’s three million veteran-owned businesses as suppliers.
For the second year in a row, DynCorp International has earned a Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award from the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC). Federal agencies and prime contractors that meet or exceed the 3 percent goal of providing opportunities to veteran-owned (VOSB) and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB) were recognized for this honor. DI far exceeded stated targets, with 21.1 percent VOSB and 6.1 percent SDVOSB suppliers. Additionally, organizations that went above and beyond to make their acquisition process veteran-friendly or took significant actions to increase contracting or subcontracting opportunities were also recognized.
