DynCorp International has earned a 2012 Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award from the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC).
Federal agencies and prime contractors that meet or exceed the three percent goal of providing opportunities to veteran-owned (VOSB) and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB) are being recognized for this honor. DynCorp International far exceeded stated targets, with 12.8 percent VOSB and 3.3 percent SDVOSB suppliers. Additionally, organizations that have gone above and beyond to make their acquisition process veteran-friendly or took significant actions to increase contracting or subcontracting opportunities will also be recognized.
“Partnering with veteran-owned and service-disabled small businesses provides great value and extraordinary service to DI and to our customers,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and chief executive officer of DynCorp International. “Much of our business involves supporting those who serve so it helps to have as our partners those who have lived the mission firsthand.”
The award will be presented during the VETS2012 Awards Luncheon, Tuesday, June 12, 2012 in Reno, Nev.
NVSBC’s mission is to transition veterans into business owners servicing the federal government and their vision is to ensure that veteran businesses are given first consideration for federal prime and subcontracting procurement opportunities.
