MCLEAN, Va. (May 8, 2014) – For the third year in a row, DynCorp International (DI) has earned a 2014 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. DI far exceeded the stated target, with 16.7% to VOSB 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.
“We are proud to partner with veteran small business owners,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and chief executive officer. “The Company was founded by veterans more than 60 years ago and we continue to share the same sense of service and values. Businesses that are owned and led by veterans have proven to be invaluable partners as we work to support national security and foreign policy objectives around the world.”
The award will be presented during the Champions of Veteran Enterprise Awards luncheon at the 2014 Veteran Entrepreneur Training Symposium (VETS), Tuesday, June 17, 2014, in Reno, Nev.
NVSBC’s mission is to transition veterans into business owners servicing the federal government. Their vision is to ensure that veteran businesses are given first consideration for federal prime and subcontracting procurement opportunities.
