MCLEAN, Va. – (August 17, 2016) – DynCorp International (DI) received a Champion Award from National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) for the fifth consecutive year this past June. The NVSBC is a
nationwide not-for-profit trade organization promoting the use of veteran and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses in Federal contracting as prime and subcontractors.
Large business prime contractors who achieve the 3 percent goal for subcontract awards to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, and corporations and major divisions or operating units that achieve the 8 percent subcontracting goal with veteran-owned small businesses are recognized with this prestigious honor.
In fiscal year 2015, DI awarded 15.5 percent of its total spend to veteran-owned small businesses and 4.8 percent to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, exceeding congressionally mandated goals.
“I’m pleased with the outstanding level of support DI receives from our veteran-owned small business partners,” said Lou Von Thaer, DI CEO. “DI was able to increase its VOSB award percentages in 2015, increasing the benefit these business owners bring to our company through their familiarity with our U.S. government customers.”
NVSBC hosted the “Champions of Veterans Enterprise” awards program on June 21 in Norfolk, Va. Over 500 veteran and service-disabled veteran small business owners were in attendance. DI’s Debbie Newberry attended the program to receive the award on behalf of the company.
“Our Supply Chain team appreciates the expertise of veteran-owned businesses as they have primary experience with our customers’ mission,” said Debbie Newberry, senior manager, Small Business. “Our company benefits from the values and training these business owners acquired while serving our country, because their experiences transition effectively into the important work we do.”
