FALLS CHURCH, Va., Feb. 9 (UPI) -- A U.S. Defense Department award honoring large contracting firms that mentor small businesses is being given to DynCorp International.
DynCorp, which has headquarters in Virginia, said the Nunn-Perry Award is in recognition of its mentor-protege arrangement with CenterScope Technologies Inc., a small company that provides customer service solutions in the areas of engineering, acquisition, knowledge management and logistics.
DynCorp's mentoring included coaching in development of new markets, establishing international operations and in worldwide logistics. As a result CTSI -- over a period of 1 1/2 years -- grew its revenue to $32 million from $5 million and added employees.
"The mentoring assistance the DI team has offered has been core to our success over the past year and a half," said CSTI President Eric Adolphe. "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 award will be formally presented to DynCorp next month.
