Because we remember what it is like to be a small business, it is important to us to share our experience by providing guidance and opportunities for small businesses.
McLean, VA (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
MorganFranklin Corporation, a business and technology consulting firm that delivers national security, financial management, and performance improvement solutions to government and industry clients, today announced that it is strengthening its commitment to the development of small businesses with increased participation in the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Mentor-Protégé program. Following the completion of a successful multi-year mentor-protégé partnership with a small business, MorganFranklin is expanding its involvement in the DHS program to include relationships with multiple small businesses that provide cutting-edge technology and capabilities that address some of the biggest challenges facing government agencies today.
“Our initial experience with the DHS Mentor-Protégé program was incredibly beneficial for both companies,” said Rob Franklin, co-founder and president of MorganFranklin’s National Security Solutions division. “Because we remember what it is like to be a small business, it is important to us to share our experience by providing guidance and opportunities for small businesses. This initiative gives us that chance while also enhancing the services we deliver to DHS and other government agencies.”
As a mentor firm, MorganFranklin assists its protégé partners in the pursuit and delivery of new capabilities and innovative solutions for DHS. The arrangements also provide MorganFranklin’s small-business partners with technical, managerial, and financial support, and help DHS achieve its subcontracting goals.
“Small businesses are an important part of the American economy and provide vital services to DHS every day,” said Kevin Boshears, director of the DHS Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU). “The Mentor Protégé program is an important part of our strategy to increase small-business participation in the department, and has the added benefit of helping us meet our subcontracting goals.”
