Oakwood University Recognized for Excellence by the Department of Defense Mentor Protégé Program (92 hits)

The Department of Defense (DOD) announced the fiscal year 2019 Nunn-Perry Awards winners this week, recognizing excellence in the DOD Mentor Protégé Program.

DOD Mentor Protégé Program participants deliver capabilities across major defense programs in support of the warfighter. Recipients of the Nunn-Perry Award excel in protégé growth and development.

The DOD Mentor Protégé Program was established November 5, 1990, in response to concerns raised by DOD prime contractors regarding their inability to meet Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) subcontracting goals. At the time, many SDBs lacked the technical capabilities to meet DOD subcontract requirements.

Mr. Shannon Jackson, Deputy Director of the Office of Small Business Programs within the Office of Industrial Policy, congratulated the winners and discussed the important collaborative roles that mentors, protégés, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) play in our nation’s small business economy and the defense industrial base.

This year's Nunn-Perry Award recipients are:

• Air Force: IBM, Steel Point Solutions, Morgan State University
• Air Force: Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, Marvin Engineering, University of Texas at El Paso
• Army: System Studies & Simulation, R2C, J.F. Drake State Community & Technical College and Oakwood University
• DIA: Global Resource Solutions, Advanced Decision Vectors, A&M College of Business and Southern University
• MDA, Parsons Government Services, Mb Solutions, Alabama State University
• MDA, Raytheon Company, Kord Technologies, Bethune-Cookman University and Oakwood University
