On March 24, 2011, VIP recognized its "champions" at the March Graduation Reception and National Launch Celebration. 

The VIP Champion award, which will be given annually, pays tribute to those individuals or organizations that have most advanced the goals of the Veteran Institute for Procurement in helping veteran-owned businesses thrive in the government contracting space.  From inspiring the program and shaping the curriculum, to volunteering as instructors and promoting the program to veteran-owned business, our inaugural honorees were an integral part of launching and growing a successful VIP program.   

VIP Champion awards were presented to the following individuals/companies for their dedication to and support of the program:

  • Congressman Chris Van Hollen
  • Congressman Roscoe Bartlett
  • Catapult Technology
  • Lockheed Martin Corporation

Thank you to all VIP supporters and sponsors!
