WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) recognized the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) for its proficiency in awarding contracts to veteran-owned small businesses, June 9.
"It is our pleasure to recognize Naval Facilities Engineering Command for your accomplishments in using service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB) in your procurement program in Fiscal Year 2014," said NVSBC Executive Director Scott Denniston, in a letter to the command.
Last year NAVFAC awarded 7.4 percent of contract awards to SDVOSB, which exceeds the congressionally mandated goal of 3 percent.
"I am tremendously proud of this recognition," said NAVFAC Commander Rear Adm. Kate Gregory. "Awarding contracts to service-disabled veteran-owned businesses is an important part of our small business program, and to be recognized for that effort is testament to the dedication of our people."
