This award exemplifies our growth within the Department of Defense. We’re proud to have won this award for a working relationship that has been mutually beneficial.
Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
Catapult Technology, Ltd., a leading Information Technology (IT) contractor to the federal market, announces that its partnership with the U.S. Army Information Technology Agency, Defense Continuity Integrated Network (USA ITA DCIN), has been awarded the Outsourcing Excellence Award for Best Partnership.
The Outsourcing Excellence Awards are presented by the Outsourcing Center, an organization that helps build a greater understanding of how organizations can create value through outsourcing.
Mark Hunker, Chief Operating Officer at Catapult, said, “Catapult has worked with the DCIN team since winning the contract in 2007. This award serves as an impressive reminder that Catapult as an industry leader, and it exemplifies our growth within the Department of Defense. We’re proud to have won this award for a working relationship that has been mutually beneficial.”
“The word ‘partnering’ is thrown around too loosely,” added John Scarcella, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Systems. “In reality, a customer has hired us not to be their partner, but to do their work. It’s a business relationship. On this contract, both Catapult and DCIN have a mutual trust and commitment to a common objective. That trust, coupled with transparently, has achieved remarkable results.”
In 2009, Catapult won the Outsourcing Excellence Award in the category of Best in IT Infrastructure category, recognizing Catapult's relationship with General Services Administration (GSA) on the $200 million GSA Infrastructure Technology Global Operations (GITGO) contract.
The 16th Annual Outsourcing Excellence Awards will be held on May 24th at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, TX.
