McCormick Stevenson Corporation was selected to participate in the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Mentor-Protégé Program with Honeywell which operates the DOE’s Kansas City National Security Campus. The DOE Mentor Protégé Program is designed to encourage DOE prime contractors to assist small businesses such as McCormick Stevenson, in enhancing their capabilities to perform contracts and subcontracts for DOE and other Federal agencies.
McCormick Stevenson was selected to the two-year Mentor-Protégé Program from Honeywell’s base of over 700 small business suppliers working with the Kansas City National Security Campus. The program seeks to foster long-term business relationships between the company and DOE prime contractors by focusing improvements on core business areas. The areas that Honeywell and McCormick Stevenson selected to focus upon are: Business Development and Marketing Strategy; Model-based Definition; Quality Management Systems; and Cyber Security. “By helping our core small business suppliers get better, stronger, and faster we are better able to achieve our national security mission,” remarked Karen West, Honeywell Small Business Program Manager.
Since the company’s January 2019 start date, McCormick Stevenson has been very pleased with the direction it has received from their mentor. ”Honeywell is helping position McCormick Stevenson for future growth by providing guidance in key business areas,” said Matt Montgomery, Engineering Manager. Matt further stated, “Having a mentor that is leading our industry towards the implementation of Model-based definition has been of tremendous value. The Mentor-Protégé Program is helping McCormick Stevenson to implement the tools and processes that will enable us to assist our clients in realizing the benefits offered by digital product definition.”
