On May 16, 2017, Acting Director Christy Jackiewicz from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) presented the DOE Office of Legacy Management (LM) with a Federal Small Business Achievement of the Year Award (non-Facility Management Contractor Program Office) at the 16th Annual DOE Small Business Forum & Expo in Kansas City, Missouri. David Shafer, LM director of the Office of Business Operations, accepted the award on behalf of LM.
This year’s award was based on fiscal year-end 2016 prime small business achievement data from DOE’s iPortal OSDBU Scorecard.
LM was recognized for its increase in small business procurement during the 2016 fiscal year, as well as for its policies, programs, and procedures that promote small business utilization. DOE Secretary Rick Perry, who provided keynote remarks at the award ceremony, also lauded LM for its innovative approach toward the utilization of small businesses during his address.
