Northrop Grumman Receives Two 2013 Nunn-Perry Awards For Superb Performance In The DOD Mentor-Protege Program

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has received two 2013 DOD Nunn-Perry Awards honoring teams who have excelled in quality, technical assistance, return on investment and protege development. Northrop Grumman's partnership with MVLE Inc., a nonprofit organization that encourages professional growth for people living with disabilities through employment and support services, represents the first time a prime contractor has entered into a Mentor-Protege agreement with an AbilityOne ® services provider. Northrop Grumman Information Systems also received a Nunn-Perry award for its mentor protege program with Kimmich Software Systems, Inc., which provides engineering services to the intelligence community.


The DOD Mentor Protege program encourages major DOD prime contractors to develop the technical and business capabilities of small disadvantaged businesses, qualifying organizations employing the severely disabled, women-owned small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, or businesses located in historically underutilized business zones.

The Nunn-Perry Award is named in honor of retired U.S. Senator Sam Nunn, who sponsored legislation to enact the Mentor-Protege Program in 1991, and former Secretary of Defense William Perry. Nunn-Perry awards are the highest honor companies can receive in the program. Northrop Grumman received two of the seven awards given this year.

Northrop Grumman has 13 current mentor protege agreements and has worked with more than 110 proteges over the life of the program. The company has received 22 DOD Nunn-Perry Awards for participation in the DOD Mentor-Protege program, more than any other company in the program.

The Mentor-Protege program is managed as part of Northrop Grumman's Socio-Economic Business Program. The goal of this program is to insure that capable small businesses including small-disadvantaged, woman-owned, veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned, historically underutilized business zones, AbilityOne organizations, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender concerns and Historically Black Colleges/Universities and Minority Institutions, receive the maximum practicable subcontracting opportunities on all major programs.
