HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sentar, a Women-Owned Small Business, announced today it has been nominated by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic) as their sole nominee for the Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year Award for 2016. Only Federal agencies may nominate firms for the Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year Award and each Federal agency may nominate only one firm. The selection criteria for the award includes: management qualifications and expertise, exceptional results, and cost performance. SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic selected and nominated Sentar from over 500 potential small business contractors that performed work for them during fiscal year 2016.
“I am ecstatic to represent SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic,” said April Nadeau, VP (DHA, Navy, and Marine Corps). “Receiving this nomination cannot be credited to just one person, whether you are executing a contract, addressing surge requirements, or providing monthly reports, it’s our employees who made this special recognition possible.”
Since being awarded SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic Integrated Cyber Operations (ICO) Small Business Preferred Contractor IDIQ pillar contract, Sentar was selected for seven Task Orders as Prime Contractor supporting SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic, Defense Health Agency, and Marine Corps. Sentar has also successfully performed as a sub-contractor for SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic on other pillars and non-pillar contracts. These awards have resulted in new jobs throughout multiple states; significantly enhancing Sentar’s established capabilities in cyber security and further strengthening the Company’s relationship with SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic.
Sentar sub-contractors also submitted Letters of Recommendation based on their experiences with Sentar as a Small Business Prime Contractor, to be considered by the judges’ panel. The following are excerpts from those submissions:
“I am purposely minimizing our list of positive “above and beyond” examples as they could fill a novel…. Sentar leaders foster a very positive “can-do”, team-oriented culture with all of their subcontractor partners.”
“Sentar’s culture of respect and trust throughout their day-to-day operations provides a highly agile, responsive environment that empowers the team to do whatever it takes to deliver the support their customers require. We know their leadership, their personnel and their culture and we believe SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic could not have selected a better company for this prestigious award.”
“Sentar’s outstanding subcontractor program management practices and implementation of a community of interest were truly outstanding initiatives, well-deserving of recognition by SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic.”
