FALLS CHURCH, Va.--( February 08, 2012) - DynCorp International (DI) announced today that the Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) will award DI the prestigious Nunn-Perry Award for its outstanding Mentor-Protégé team formed with its small business partner, CenterScope Technologies, Inc (CSTI).
"An important element of the program is technology transfer," said Gregory Reyes, corporate director of Mentor-Protégé programs at DynCorp International. "We provided a foundation for our protégé CSTI to develop solutions to increase financial and operational efficiency. The value created for our customer (US Army) and broad scope of this partnership is most noteworthy. It shows that, even in a difficult economy, we can achieve amazing results and positive job growth."
CSTI is based in McLean, VA. and provides customer service solutions in engineering and acquisition, knowledge management, international support and logistics and base operations. As part of its mentoring role, DynCorp International provided CSTI with coaching and training in areas such as new market development, international operations and global logistics. DI also provided CSTI with expertise and guidance to expand their business internationally - resulting in a revenue increase from $5 to $32 million in just 18 months and creating more than 100 jobs by helping them to expand the overall base of their marketplace participation.
"The mentoring assistance the DI team has offered has been core to our success over the past year and a half," said Eric Adolphe, president, CSTI. "In a period of months, we have grown into a prosperous global operation, and matured the organization into one able to responsibly manage that exponential growth."
The awards will be presented at the 16th annual Nunn-Perry Awards Ceremony at the 2012 Mentor-Protégé Conference, Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 7:30 p.m., at the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach, VA.
