The NASA Glenn Research Center, as part of its 2009 Small Business Industry Awards (SBIA) program has selected MSM Group Inc. as its Small Business Subcontractor of the Year. The NASA program recognizes the outstanding Small Business Prime, Large Business Prime, and Small Business Subcontractor that support NASA in achieving its mission. NASA Glenn’s selection of MSM also means that they will nominate MSM for the 2009 NASA agency-wide award in the same SBIA category.
MSM Group Inc. was nominated by its prime contractor, Sierra Lobo, who performs Test Facilities Operations, Maintenance, and Engineering (TFOME) services at the NASA Glenn Research Center. MSM’s main contribution to TFOME has been the development and implementation of an enterprise approach to integrated business tools and processes for task planning, execution, monitoring, control, and reporting.
“Many contractors employ independent point-solutions for planning, resource allocation, funding, and cost reporting” said MSM Group’s President & Chief Executive Officer Kevin McQuade. “MSM’s end-to-end, fully integrated project management and accounting solution provides anytime-anywhere accessibility to project, task, and contract data and information.”
“Our value proposition runs deep. The MSM business model helps the NASA small business contractor deliver high quality services at low cost by dynamically linking information technology tools with state of the art business processes,” he said. “NASA GRC’s selection of MSM for this award underscores their commitment to small businesses as well as demonstrates recognition of the achievements small businesses make towards the overall NASA mission.”
