System Studies & Simulation, Inc. (S3) is pleased to announce that the Department of Defense (DoD) has honored the company with a Nunn-Perry Award for excellence in the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program. The award is in recognition of S3’s collaboration with R2C, LLC, our small business protégé, to increase the protégé’s growth in the DoD market, and to improve its business processes and systems in support of US military customers.
S3/R2C’s Nunn-Perry Award is one of only six Awards made for Fiscal Year 2019 from a total of eleven nominations. Under S3’s mentorship, R2C increased the size of its workforce by 57%; realized more than 62% growth in total annual revenue; received its AS9100 Revision D and ISO 9001-2015 Quality Management Certifications; and rolled out a new, professionally designed Website which will significantly improve R2C’s messaging and branding.
The Nunn-Perry Award is named in honor of former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn, who sponsored legislation to enact the Mentor-Protégé Program in 1991, and former Secretary of Defense, William Perry. The Nunn-Perry Award is the highest honor companies can receive in the program. Winning companies will receive their awards during the DoD Mentor-Protégé Training Week Workshop currently scheduled for August 2020.
