Mentor-Protege Honor Given


FALLS CHURCH, Va., (UPI) — A U.S. government award for effective mentor-protege teaming is being given to CSC and Knight Point Systems, a Virginia information technology firm.

The award was given by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization in recognition of superior teamwork and developmental support.

“This recognition of our work with Knight Point Systems is a resounding testament to the success of CSC’s mentor-protege program and reaffirms our commitment to small and disadvantaged businesses in the federal market,” said Dave Zolet, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector business unit.

“CSC appreciates the recognition of this award, as well as the impressive track record that the Department of Homeland Security possesses in achieving its small business subcontracting goals.”

Knight Point Systems is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business. CSC said it invited the company to become its protege after the company had demonstrated excellence in delivery of its services.
