SBA says TCG is A‑OK!

Company is Commended for Outstanding Service and Contributions to the Nation

Washington, DC, September 25, 2012:  The Small Business Administration (SBA) has commended TCG for its outstanding contributions and service to the nation, and presented the company with its Administrator’s Award for Excellence. 

TCG was nominated for the 2012 Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year Award for SBA Region III by Christopher Friedline, who leads the Department of the Treasury/Bureau of the Public Debt Budget Formulation and Execution Manager (BFEM) program. With the help of TCG, BFEM has transformed 13 agencies’ paper-based budgeting processes into a purely electronic workflow that is saving taxpayer dollars while improving the accuracy, agility, and quality of budget submissions. 

“We didn’t win the main prize!” wailed TCG’s dejected President, Dan Turner. “We are sad. We don’t usually like bragging about second place, but a commendation from the SBA is a nice gesture and we thought it would be worth telling everyone about it. It’s always gratifying to be recognized by the government for our efforts, and we appreciate SBA presenting us with this encouraging award.”
