SSC wins NASA award

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. – Stennis Space Center, for the second time in the award’s eight-year history, has been awarded NASA’s fiscal year 2016 NASA Small Business Administrator's Cup. The award is presented annually to recognize the NASA center that has the best overall small business program. SSC first received the cup in 2011 for having the most innovative small business program in the agency. Five years later, SSC is receiving the cup for the center-wide effort and support to promote and better integrate all small businesses in support of the Stennis programs and mission. In FY 2016, SSC had its most successful overall year on record with regard to the percentage of dollars awarded to small businesses. The award was presented to Stennis Space Center Director Richard J. Gilbrech by Acting NASA Administrator Robert M. Lightfoot and Associate Administrator of the Office of Small Business Programs Glenn A. Delgado. (Source: NASA, 05/18/17)
