Columbia, Maryland (March 23, 2023) – INNOPLEX, LLC announces its selection as a finalist for the 15th Annual Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF) Awards.

INNOPLEX, LLC has been nominated for two prestigious SECAF awards by Unanet, a leading provider of cloud-based software for project-driven organizations. The awards are: Government Contractor of the Year and Mentor-Protégé Program of the Year. These nominations are a testament to INNOPLEX's commitment to excellence in the government contracting industry and their dedication to supporting the growth and development of small businesses through their mentor-protégé program. Winners will be announced at the Awards Gala on Thursday, May 4, 2023. This event honors small and emerging government contractors and the players in the industry that rely on these businesses.

INNOPLEX, LLC is proud to be a finalist for two prestigious SECAF awards:

The Government Contractor of the Year award (Level: $27.5 to $50 Million in Revenue) recognizes companies that have shown a compelling and profound commitment to excellence in financial performance.

The Mentor-Protégé Program of the Year awards companies that have shown a compelling and profound commitment to excellence through its collaboration efforts.

“Being selected as a finalist for the SECAF Government Contractor of the Year and Mentor-Protégé Program of the year for 2022 is truly humbling," says Jason Servary, Chief Strategic Officer at INNOPLEX. "This nomination is a credit to the entire team and the individual performances and contributions across all departments. All the hard work from 2021 equated to success in 2022, and we are beyond proud of the results. Many thanks to [our mentor protégé partner] BrainTrust who brought critical capabilities to bear within our Mentor Protégé Joint Venture."

Last year, INNOPLEX established a mentor-protégé program with BrainTrust, an EverWatch company. This partnership allows INNOPLEX to leverage BrainTrust's expertise and experience to enhance their capabilities and deliver exceptional solutions for our customers. This partnership played a critical role in securing a major prime contract in 2022 valued at over $600 million dollars. This example shows the power of partnership, and the ability to use special programs within the DoD and Small Business Administration to maximize capabilities for competitive advantage.

INNOPLEX's momentum has increased considerably in the last few years, but the company isn't slowing down anytime soon. "While this is an impressive nomination, we are continuing forward with laser focus into the unrestricted market," Mr. Servary explains. "We strive for continuous improvement and look to solidify our position as a leader in high-performance computing, IT operations, and signals and cyber analysis for the Intel Community at large.

Mitchell Ross, Principal at Acquisition and Management, LLC, and Chair of the SECAF Board of Directors says of these nominations: “The SECAF Awards give us an opportunity to highlight the small and emerging contractors that are succeeding in our market; along with the people, in and out of government, that are driving our market to success. INNOPLEX exemplifies the successful journey that can result from a commitment to serving the public sector market.”
