DynCorp International Earns Eighth Consecutive Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award

McLean, VA – (June 18, 2019) – For the eighth year in a row, the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) recognized DynCorp International (DI) with its Champion of Veteran Enterprise Award for the 2018 fiscal year, “For Exceptional Support of Veteran and Service-Disabled Veteran Small Business.”

Major organizations, both federal agencies and large business prime contractors, who have shown exceptional support for service disabled veteran small businesses by exceeding the 3 percent goal for subcontract awards to service disabled veteran-owned small businesses, and by exceeding 8 percent in awards to veteran small businesses are recognized with this prestigious honor.

“We are deeply proud of continually being recognized for our dedicated efforts in partnering with Veteran and Service-Disabled Veteran Small Businesses,” said Billy Harlin, senior director, Procurement. “This recognition is possible because of the commitment of senior leadership, program execution, and our small business program.”

In fiscal year 2018, DI awarded 23.6 percent of its total spend to veteran-owned small businesses and 12.1 percent to service disabled veteran-owned small business, far exceeding congressionally mandated goals. The award was presented during the Champions of Veteran Enterprise Awards luncheon at the 2019 Veteran Entrepreneur Training Symposium (VETS), which took place May 29-31 in San Antonio, Texas.

“Our company benefits from the values and training these business owners acquired while serving our country, and they make great partners because they share our mission in supporting our customers and the warfighter,” said Debbie Newberry, senior manager, Small Business.
