Huntsville, AL – Tec-Masters, Inc. (TMI) announced today that they have received two prestigious Nunn-Perry awards from the Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) in recognition of their excellence in the DoD Mentor Protégé Program (MPP). TMI was awarded the FY2021 Nunn-Perry Award for mentoring Beshenich, Muir, and Associates in support of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) MPP, and the FY2022 Nunn-Perry Award for mentoring GeneCapture in support of the US Army MPP. The awards were presented at the Mentor Protégé Summit in Orlando, FL on March 30th, bringing TMI’s total number of Nunn-Perry awards to nine.
