The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) presented CSC (NYSE: CSC) with an award for “Large Business Prime Contractor of the Year.” Presented at the Houston Government Procurement Connections Conference, the award is for a facilities contract at Johnson Space Center.
Selection criteria for the large business prime contractor category included performing well on all NASA contracts; demonstrating overall sound small business programs; meeting or exceeding small business requirements; using small business contractors to perform some technical tasks required by the contract during its execution; and sponsoring and participating in outreach activities.
“CSC values the opportunity to mentor and partner with the local small business community at Johnson Space Center and is pleased to be recognized by NASA for excelling in this area,” said Alan Weakley, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Defense Group. “We make a conscious effort to support Department of Defense initiatives by incorporating small businesses wherever possible in the programs we manage worldwide.”
CSC was previously awarded two “Contractor of the Year” awards from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the NASA John C. Stennis Space Center in 2009.
