Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
The Department of Homeland Security presented LRS Federal with the 2011 Small Business Achievement Award during a Washington, DC ceremony. LRS Federal earned this award based on their performance supporting the DHS Office of Health Affairs (OHA) BioWatch program, a biodefense program to help protect the health and medical security of the homeland. The BioWatch program provides continuous surveillance for aerosolized exposures caused by intentional release of biological agents.
While presenting the award, Kevin Boshears, the Director of DHS’ Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, said, “LRS Federal provides field operations support to the Office of Health Affairs, Chemical and Biological Early Detection System Program Office in the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland. LRS has consistently followed all schedules and completed schedule requirements on time while showing a cost at or, in most instances, below the contracted amount. All planned milestones have been completed on or before set deadlines. LRS has required minimal oversight by the Government in all situations. There has been a 99.8% collection efficiency achieved throughout the duration of their term of contract (95% is required.) They also received a Special Programmatic Citation/Award for Maintenance as the 2010 Top Performer in their category. In FY2011 they completed the contract with a residual of over $100,000 that was used to replace equipment in need of repair.”
Sean Logan, LRS Federal CEO, accepted the award and afterwards said, “This project is important to our national security, homeland defense and to the communities in the National Capitol Region. We take our responsibility very seriously and with the support of our hard-working and dedicated team, we ensure the job is accomplished in a professional and safe manner each day. We will maintain the high expectations of the DHS and the local community. We appreciate the recognition our customer has honored us with and look forward to continuing our role as a valued member of the DHS team.”
