Syracuse, NY, October 30, 2006 – Syracuse Research Corporation (SRC) is proud to announce that the company has been awarded its sixth James S. Cogswell Award (Cogswell Award) for achievement in security excellence for its Syracuse office. SRC has won a total of eight awards, two of those for its San Antonio, TX office.
The Cogswell Award is the most prestigious security award given to industry by the U.S. Defense Security Service (DSS). This year, only 29 facilities were selected to receive the award out of more than 11,000 eligible government contractors, including almost 200 in Upstate New York. SRC was previously awarded the Cogswell in 1975, 1978, 1985, 1995 (two awards, one for San Antonio), 1998, and 2002 (San Antonio). Once a facility is awarded a Cogswell, it cannot compete again for three years.
President and CEO Robert U. Roberts stated, “Winning the Cogswell Award is a team effort and requires a dedication to the security program by all members of the Corporation. We are extremely proud of our employees and believe this illustrates how important we view the information of our customers. It also reflects that we are leaders in security.”
The Cogswell Award was established in 1966 and named in honor of the late U.S. Air Force Col. James S. Cogswell, the first chief of the unified office of Industrial Security. Cogswell was responsible for developing the basic principles of the industrial security program, including the emphasis on partnership between industry and government to accomplish industrial security objectives, and excellence for the benefit of the U.S. warfighter.
