DynCorp International Earns Ninth Consecutive Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award

McLean, VA – (August 31, 2020) – For the ninth year in a row, the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) recognized DynCorp International (DI) with its Champion of Veteran Enterprise Award for the 2019 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.

“DI being recognized for the 9th consecutive year as a devoted partner to Veteran and Service-Disabled Veteran Small Businesses is a remarkable accomplishment,” said Billy Harlin, vice president, Procurement. “This further emphasizes DI’s commitment to our Small Business program which is a focus throughout the company.”

In fiscal year 2019, DI awarded 14.5 percent of its total spend to veteran-owned small businesses and 8.7 percent to service-disabled veteran-owned small business, far exceeding congressionally mandated goals.

“We are honored to partner with our nation’s veterans and for that to be recognized by NVSBC,” said Debbie Newberry, senior manager, Small Business. “Veteran-owned businesses are an important part of our supply chain and their work ethic, values and training received during service to our country naturally make them strong subcontractors and teammates.”
