KENNEWICK, WA, (MAY 17, 2017) — i3 Global was named the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Fiscal Year 2016 Protégé of the Year today at the 16th Annual Small Business Forum & Expo in Kansas City, Mo. This award recognizes the significant development of a DOE protégé small business that has enhanced its ability to successfully compete for federal contracts through its participation in the Mentor-Protégé program. i3 Global entered into a Mentor-Protégé agreement with Mission Support Alliance (MSA) in 2015, providing MSA with information technology, and multi-media and staffing services. MSA is the site services provider at the Hanford Site, maintaining roads and delivering utilities, IT services, safeguards & security, as well as emergency services, environmental monitoring, communications support and portfolio management.

“Winning this award is not only gratifying on a business level, but something I am personally proud to bring back to my hometown and the Hanford Site,” said Kris Lapp, president of i3 Global. “Our company is on a mission to showcase the positive aspects of the work being done at Hanford and the tremendous amount of tech talent in our great community. Our mentor organization, Mission Support Alliance, has been key in supporting our efforts and putting us in an excellent position to succeed along with them. This has been a great partnership, and we look forward to continued success together.”

Please make plans to attend the upcoming media event which will feature representatives from i3 Global, MSA, and local community leaders. They will discuss the significance of the award and what it means to our local community.
