ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) and American Cyber, Inc. announced today that the companies have received the prestigious Nunn-Perry Award from the Department of Defense (DoD) for excellence in the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP).
The DoD MPP assists small businesses (protégés) to successfully compete for prime contract and subcontract awards by partnering with large companies (mentors) under individual, project-based agreements. CACI and American Cyber’s partnership in the MPP is sponsored by the U.S. Army Office of Small Business Programs and the Army CIO/G-6. The Nunn-Perry Award, named in honor of former Senator Sam Nunn and former Secretary of Defense William Perry, recognizes outstanding mentor-protégé teams in the MPP.
Under the MPP partnership, with CACI serving as mentor, American Cyber has successfully been awarded its first prime contract, significantly grown its workforce, and expanded into additional regions and market areas. CACI has aligned its Small Business Advocacy Office to its business development and operations organizations to maximize and leverage support for strategic programs such as the MPP.
According to Gary Winkler, American Cyber’s President, “The Nunn-Perry Award represents what the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program is all about – exceptional teamwork between large and small industry partners to expand the DoD industrial base in service of our national security and defense. On behalf of American Cyber’s workforce, we are honored and grateful to have been selected to participate in the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program, and we thank our sponsors who made it possible: the Army CIO/G-6, the Army Office of Small Business Programs, and our mentor, CACI.”
