For the seventh year in a row, the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) honored Booz Allen with its Champion of Veteran Enterprise Award in recognition of its efforts to team with veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses. In government fiscal year 2017, the firm subcontracted more than 13 percent of our work to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, and 20 percent to veteran-owned small businesses. These results far exceed both the government’s benchmark for subcontracting to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (three percent), and the NVSBC’s minimum requirement for this award (eight percent). 

“This award once again demonstrates Booz Allen’s commitment to our military and veteran community,” Andrea Inserra, senior vice president at Booz Allen, and chair of the Veterans Agenda. “We were founded by a veteran, and 1/3 of our employees are military-connected.  It only makes sense that we would enthusiastically reach out to veteran-owned businesses to do our best work.”

This award is only one example of the firm’s long-standing dedication to veterans. In addition to partnering with veteran-owned small businesses, the firm supports veterans by hiring them, providing best-in-class benefits, working with Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense (DoD) to improve veteran care, and partnering with non-profits to strengthen our military communities.
