INCREASING ITS REVENUES by more than tenfold in the years that followed Katrina required CompuCure to maintain a laser-sharp focus on the quality of the work performed as well as on creating an attractive employment environment for its workforce. The emphasis on outcomes for both customers and employees earned the woman-owned small business two national awards from the United States Department of Agriculture.
IN AN AWARD CEREMONY held in the patio of the Jamie L. Whitten Building, Washington, DC, in June 2008, CompuCure was named HUBZone (Historically Underutilized Business Zones) Contractor of the Year by The United States Department of Agriculture. The presenters of the award included the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary of the agency. Chosen from among hundreds of submissions by contracting officers from all over the United States, the announcement stated that “COMPUCURE’s technical abilities and professionalism were exceptional.” What follows is an excerpt from the profile written by USDA staff for the occasion:
COMPUCURE was extremely responsive to government needs and requirements ensuring efficient customer service for the lowest cost. The company’s workstation support was technically competent and responsive to customer needs. COMPUCURE’s technical abilities and professionalism was exceptional.
AGAIN IN JUNE 2009, the USDA recognized CompuCure’s outstanding performance for the National Finance Center when it named the firm a Woman-owned Contractor of the Year. The award, in part, stated that CompuCure “maintained the highest professional demeanor while handling challenges and difficult projects.”
