For the second year in a row, DynCorp International has earned a 2013 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 21.1 percent VOSB and 6.1 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.
“Veteran-owned and service-disabled small businesses play an integral role in our global supply chain,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and chief executive officer of DynCorp International. “Their unique experience with and understanding of many of our customers’ needs helps our business succeed.”
“We are fortunate to have this opportunity to recognize the organizations and leaders responsible for awarding significant contracts to the Veteran small business community,” says Scott Denniston, executive director of the NVSBC.
The award will be presented during the VETS2013 Awards Luncheon, Tuesday, June 11, 2013, in Reno, Nev.
VETS2013 assembles more than 300 stakeholders to discuss how to take full advantage of federally mandated contracting opportunities specifically for Veteran-owned small businesses. The event includes representatives from the Veteran small business community, federal agencies, and prime contractors who exchange knowledge and business opportunities in the classroom, the exhibit hall, and in one-on-one business sessions.
NVSBC is a non-profit trade association whose 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.
