The Department of Defense (DoD) announced the fiscal year 2019 Nunn-Perry Awards winners in May 2020. 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 Nov. 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. The award is named for the contributions of Senator Sam Nunn and former Secretary of Defense William Perry, who both played critical roles in the implementation of the DOD Mentor Protégé Program.
The DOD Mentor Protégé Program helps innovators grow as companies to meet the growing and shifting demands of the warfighter and the Department. The Nunn-Perry Award pauses to highlight the companies that have navigated that challenging transition from capability to company above and beyond their peers.
