GCI and Chenega Technology Services (CTSC, LLC) were notified by the Under Secretary of Defense's Office of Small Business Programs that its Mentor-Protégé Program has been selected to receive the 2013 DoD Nunn-Perry Award.
The DoD Mentor-Protégé program was created and implemented by former Senator Sam Nunn and former Secretary of Defense William Perry. The program was created to assists small businesses (protégés) to successfully compete for prime contract and subcontract awards by partnering with large companies (mentors) under individual, project-based agreements. The prestigious Nunn-Perry Award, named in honor of the program's founders was first awarded in 1995 to recognize outstanding Mentor-Protégé teams formed under the auspices of the DoD Mentor-Protégé program.
In his award notification, Mr. Paul Simpkins, Associate Director, Office of Small Business Programs cites:
"Despite many budgetary challenges during this time period, your hard work, dedication, and superior achievements have gone a long way towards making this another successful year for the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program. Well done!"
GCI would like to thank CTSC, LLC, our Mentor and the largest independent subsidiary of Chenega Corporation, for their leadership in this process. Thanks to all of our employees for their hard work at making the Mentor-Protégé Program a huge success for both companies. Thanks to all of our customers for their confidence and support for GCI.
As proud recipients of the Nunn-Perry Award, GCI recognizes that great results can be achieved through small business alliances.
GCI recently won contracts to provide support to the Department of Energy (DOE). As DOE is headquartered in Germantown, MD, GCI felt it was necessary to have a local office in the Germantown area to improve local support for the DOE and to provide a central office for GCI employees to use as needed. Another benefit of this local office is that it provides a convenient meeting place for GCI's teaming partners as well as with the Government

Utah is in Region 8 along with six other states. Winners of state Person of the Year awards will be nominated for regional awards and then for the national SBA award. Utah SBA representatives noted that Mr. Sharma was chosen for the award not only because his company has made great strides since its founding in 2005, but Mr. Sharma also supports veterans, other small businesses and other minorities. In their nomination of him for the Utah state award the Utah District Office said of Mr. Sharma:
“Sandeep Sharma fondly reminisces about starting Global Consulting International and having to use plastic molded patio furniture for tables and chairs during the company’s infancy. Since those early days in 2005, the company has seen steady growth, with total sales of around $12 million in 2012, a three-fold increase since 2007. Such a sizable growth curve during a time of national economic recession and stagnation is a testament to Sharma’s business strategy and execution skills as company owner.
“Having made the decision to transition the bulk of the company’s future growth into the government sector in 2007, GCI was accepted into SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program in September 2007. Through a concerted effort to focus on government contracting opportunities, from 2008 through 2012 GCI expanded its product portfolio beyond the original core of IT Consulting Services to now include services in Military Healthcare, Logistics, Engineering and Intelligence.
“The company has consistently received exceptional contract performance ratings from procuring agencies and several agencies have inquired about GCI expanding their services.
“Employing over 120 staff, including minorities and service-disabled veterans, and being involved in several charitable causes in the Greater Salt Lake City area shows Sharma and GCI take their commitment to community seriously.
“For his efforts in growing GCI through government contracting in the midst of great economic challenge, fostering a sustainable company culture, and giving back to the community, SBA is pleased to recognize Sandeep Sharma as the Utah SBA Minority Small Business Person of the Year for 2013. “
