The U.S. Department of State is proud to announce that American Science and Engineering, Inc. is the recipient of the 18th Annual Department of State Small Business Prime Contractor for the Year Award. The award will be presented to Mr. Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO of the firm in a ceremony in the Department of State Diplomatic Reception Rooms this Fall.
American Science and Egineering, Inc. (AS&E) provided critical support in the detection of contraband and other illegal items at the U.S. Mexican Border. Without this firm's dilligence, security at the border would have deteriorated and threatened U.S. nation security. AS&E is worthy of the highest recognition in meeting the client's needs with the utmost professionalism, continually striving to improve its performance, developing a new truck platform to work more effectively in rural and mountainous areas in Mexico, working with vehicle manufacturers to insure compatibility with inspection equipment, and providing exceptional customer service while maintaining constant contact with progam and contracting officials to ensure proper and timely completion of projects. The firm proactively (at its expense) established an infrastructure of response to any situation that might arise during their contract warranty periods and has gone the extra mile by implementing maintenance schedules for all system equipment guaranteeing customers have absolute minimal downtime and system breakdowns. Timely delivery has been a hallmark of the firm's capabilities on each of its projects maintaining a perfect delivery record and generally delivering ahead of schedule often months before due dates. AS&E also showed its management skills in creating a Train-The-Trainer course that further builds support capacity.
The Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year Award recognizes small business contractors who have displayed exemplary performance, customer service, management and technical capabilities. It is sponsored by the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources. The winning contractor was chosen by a five-person panel. Awards of Excellence were also awarded to Acuity, Inc. and Trident Research, LLC.
