Awards Categories and Criteria
"AECOM is honored to be the recipient of the 2016 Contractor of the Year Award. Winning this award is a true accomplishment for our company and allows us to further expand our brand in the government market. Since AECOM began in 1990, we have become one of the largest and most respected providers of professional, technical and management support services in the world. While AECOM has been a member of the northern Virginia community for many years, we have been primarily known through our heritage companies. Winning this award highlights the AECOM brand leading to potential business opportunities and growth for AECOM’s government business. It’s also worth mentioning that the reach and value of this award even goes beyond the NoVA area, often carrying cache among governments worldwide."
"NT Concepts’ emphasis has always been on partnering with and making our customers successful and less about getting recognized for that success. However, in 2016, we were encouraged to talk about our remarkable efforts to help OPM’s background investigation support services program and we agreed that the Gov Con Awards was a great platform. The NT Concepts team understood the monumental task we accepted when OPM ask us to take over this program and success was the only result acceptable. For that reason, this award was much more about my team than it was about me personally. Extraordinary efforts in government contracting should be recognized and I believe that the Chamber and PSC’s Gov Con Awards is the premier event in our industry for this honor."
