EBJ Awarded Mabbett Two EBJ Business Achievement Awards
The Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) awarded Mabbett two EBJ Business Achievement Awards as part of the 15th Annual Environmental Industry Summit recently held in San Diego, California.
In December 2016, the EBJ solicited the environmental industry for nominations for the prestigious EBJ Business Achievement Awards. Nominations were accepted in 200-word essays in either specific or unspecified categories. Final awards were determined by a committee of EBJ staff and EBJ editorial advisory board members. The 2016 EBJ awards were presented to recipients at the Environmental Industry Summit XV held at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, California. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day event hosted by EBJ.
Mabbett received the Business Achievement, Small Firms Bronze Award in recognition of Mabbett’s making a major business development strategy change which resulted in exceptional 2016 new business and financial results in the Federal sector in terms of new clientele, proposal capture and project backlog.
Arthur N. Mabbett, Chairman and CEO attended the Summit and stated, “As part of our strategy change, we took a close look at our Federal pursuits in terms of our win percentage for specific solicitation types. We then changed our strategy and focused on best value procurements where decisions are based on technical competency, qualifications and experience and not price.” Mabbett continued, “Our Federal success was excellent in 2016 and included: a $15,000,000 five year ID/IQ contract for comprehensive imbedded environmental, health and safety services on a worldwide basis for the US Missile Defense Agency; a $3,000,000 one-year contract with the US Army, Center for Public Health to provide industrial hygiene survey services at 15 US Army installations; and a $1.2M+ single task order award for the US Army Corps of Engineers for site assessment and remediation activities at a former World War II Army Airfield in Maine.”
In addition, Arthur Mabbett received the Social Contribution/Industry Leadership Award for working tirelessly towards passage of a specific provision contained in The Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2016, signed into law in December. The law includes a new provision in Title V, Small Business and Employment Matters, Section 50l, (a), (C), (ii), which allows a surviving spouse of a veteran with a service-connected disability rated at less than 100% disabling who does not die as a result of a service-connected disability, a period of three years after the veteran's death to retain the company's verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) classification with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
“I am most pleased and honored to have been recognized by the EBJ,” stated Mabbett. “We have worked hard over the past five years to get this legislation passed into law on behalf of all disabled-veteran small business owners.”
