We are really excited to be selected as the first SDVO protégé for a company with the prestigious reputation of Jacobs
Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
LRS Federal LLC (LRS) and Jacobs Inc. (Jacobs) have signed a DoD-sponsored Mentor-Protégé agreement to work together on Department of Defense programs and projects. This agreement establishes LRS Federal as the first Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned protégé approved for entry into Jacobs' award-winning program. The approval of this agreement coincides with the increased emphasis by the federal government and the Administration to improve contracting opportunities for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned small businesses.
The DoD-sponsored Mentor-Protégé Program pairs large companies with eligible small businesses to enhance the protégés' capabilities and enable them to successfully compete for larger, more complex prime contract and subcontract awards. On four separate occasions, the Jacobs Mentor-Protégé program has been the recipient of the prestigious DoD Nunn-Perry award, a DoD award that recognizes superior program performance by Mentor-Protégé teams.
LRS Federal is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned (SDVO) program and project management company with headquarters in Annapolis, Maryland. LRS offers consulting and technical services for their federal clients to assess, plan and implement projects that enhance the value of client assets. They specialize in environmental, construction management, information technology and financial/legal liability programs. The LRS management team is frequently called upon to be speakers and consultants for performance-based contracting and risk management programs.
Jacobs and LRS are focusing on providing value-added services to the DoD and other federal agencies. With this agreement, LRS will be able to access the expertise and capabilities of a global engineering leader to offer the federal government a SDVO small business that can execute complex, challenging projects. LRS and Jacobs will team together to deliver quality project performance while also helping the federal government achieve their federal contracting goals.
"We are really excited to be selected as the first SDVO protégé for a company with the prestigious reputation of Jacobs," said LRS President Tom Scott. "We are committed to honoring this demonstration of confidence, shown by both Jacobs and DoD, by delivering superior performance to our mentor and our DoD customers. This program will allow us to become a much better company and ensure that the DoD will have a reliable partner today and in the future."
