Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) February 1, 2009
LRS Federal LLC (LRS) was selected to participate in the Mentor-Protégé Program sponsored by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The mentor-protégé agreement provides a mechanism where ORNL and LRS can enter into an integrated working relationship that will enhance LRS Federal's business and technical capabilities. The Mentor-Protégé Program at ORNL is a DOE initiative designed to encourage and assist small businesses in an effort to enhance their capabilities to perform contracts and subcontracts for ORNL. The effort is intended to provide opportunities for LRS to become a successful subcontractor at ORNL, to become a successful contractor for other government agencies and private industry as well as to foster long-term relationships and business growth.
The Department of Energy strives to increase subcontracting opportunities by encouraging prime contractors to assist small disadvantaged businesses, including Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned companies, through the Mentor-Protégé Program. This program provides a number of benefits that include preferential contracting opportunities and long-term teaming relationships between the Mentor and Protégé. LRS continues their relationship with ORNL which began in 2006 when they signed a Memorandum of Agreement to cooperate in Technology Evaluation, Demonstration and Implementation.
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 engineering, environmental services, construction management, technology development 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.
"The ability to partner with such a world-renowned science and technology leader is truly a milestone in our company's history. We are grateful for the opportunity and will ensure this is a success for ORNL and the Department of Energy," said LRS CEO Sean Logan. "By taking advantage of the mentorship, training and assistance being offered through this agreement, we will be better positioned to support ORNL and all of our federal clients with greater skill and enhanced capabilities."
