The Government Technology & Services Coalition and Government Contracting Weekly have partnered to recognize exceptional mentors in the government contracting community.
Since GTSC’s inception, the members have wanted to recognize and encourage those who are improving the environment, expertise and effectiveness of the private and public sectors to assure that collectively we achieve our mission of protecting the nation. The Mentor Awards program highlights the tremendous people and companies working collaboratively to provide the latest innovation, professionalism and expertise to our Federal partners.
The awards program recognizes and salutes government contractors for their leadership and concrete actions in assisting small government contracting firms through mentoring, training, inspiration, teaming and cooperation. The awards recognize that mentoring is critical to the contracting community. Large firms that mentor small companies play a critical role in saving their Federal clients money and time, commit to putting action behind the mantra of bringing “innovation and creativity” to the Federal mission and bring a higher level of professionalism to the contracting community.
