ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today the Department of Defense has honored the company with two Nunn-Perry Awards for excellence in the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program, in recognition of CACI’s collaboration with two small business proteges, Athena Technology Group (ATG) and Crystal Clear Technologies (CCT).
Under CACI’s mentorship in fiscal 2018, ATG more than doubled its workforce, received four key industry quality-assurance certifications – CMMI® Level 3 for Services, ISO 9001, ISO 20000, and ISO 27001 – and expanded its customer base to include the Army, Defense Information Systems Agency, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
CCT, also under CACI’s mentorship, won the first Woman-Owned Small Business sole source contract award for cyber planning from the Air Force’s Air Combat Command. Additionally, CCT produced an incredible nearly 9,000 percent return on investment and earned two key industry certifications: CMMI Level 3 for Services and ISO 9000.
The DoD Mentor-Protégé Program assists small businesses (protégés) to successfully compete for prime contract and subcontract awards by partnering with large companies (mentors) under individual, project-based agreements.
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 program. DoD awarded only 10 in fiscal 2018. Winning companies will be presented with the award during the DoD Mentor-Protégé Training Week Workshop in September 2019.
CACI and ATG’s partnership is sponsored by the Army Chief Information Office/G-6; CACI’s partnership with Crystal Clear Technologies is sponsored by the Air Force Small Business Office.
CACI’s best-in-class program has won the Nunn-Perry award four times, including with protégé American Cyber in 2016.
According to Rich Volz, President and CEO of ATG, “We are honored to work with CACI to deliver tremendous value to the Army’s Chief Information Office/G-6, including by providing critical expertise for its satellite communications programs. The Nunn-Perry Award recognizes the benefit to our national defense created by partnerships between large and small companies.”
According to Crystal Culbertson, CEO of CCT, “This award recognizes the top-quality cyber services CCT provides across DoD. It’s a testament to the invaluable mentorship provided by CACI, our mentor, to help ensure the success of our woman-owned small business.”
And Vice President of CACI’s Small Business Advocacy Office Nancy Peters said, “To receive two such recognitions in one year highlights CACI’s commitment to supporting DoD’s critical missions, as well as our company’s ability to identify and develop innovative small businesses. It’s gratifying to mentor two emerging companies and to support a robust defense industrial base.”
