The finalists for the 2015 Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards were announced on September 10th by the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and Professional Services Council. For 13 years these awards have honored business and individual excellence in the government contracting industry.
“The companies and executives recognized as finalists demonstrate excellence and distinction. This is a highly competitive process and those that emerge as finalists have a great deal of which to be proud,” said Jim Corcoran, Fairfax Chamber president and CEO.
PSC President and CEO Stan Soloway said, “Each year we are privileged to honor a group of companies, executives and government leaders who really make a difference. It’s really a celebration of the great things that are being done by so many people inside and outside of government.”
The 2015 Public Sector Partner of the Year will go to Anne Rung, Administrator, Office of Federal Procurement Policy. This year Paul Lombardi, longtime industry leader and former CEO of DynCorp International will be inducted into the Greater Washington Government Contractors Hall of Fame.
The 2015 GovCon Charity Partner is Washington, DC-based Dog Tag Bakery which provides valuable work experience for disabled veterans and caregivers.
