Leah Baker, NAVSUP FLC Norfolk Office of Small Business Programs, accepted the Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award on behalf of NAVSUP at a recent ceremony in Norfolk, Virginia.

Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) small business efforts were awarded the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award in June. The Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award is earned by organizations for having met or exceeded the mandated goal of providing opportunities to Veteran-owned and service-disabled Veteran-owned small businesses.

NAVSUP exceeded the federal socio-economic goal for service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses in 2014. This is the fourth year NAVSUP has exceeded the federal goal.

“NAVSUP has an excellent team of small business professionals and contracting personnel who recognize the capabilities available from Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses,” said Carol Decker, associate director, NAVSUP Office of Small Business Programs. “We are honored to receive this award and we appreciate the critical role that veteran-owned small businesses play in helping NAVSUP accomplish our mission.”

The mission of the NVSBC is to transition veterans into business owners.
