ACT I said the company is eligible for an award under the category for contractors with up to $25 million in revenue.

“We are honored to be selected and recognized as a finalist, along with our fellow government contractor nominees in the awards category, and look forward to participating in the annual awards gala in November,” said ACT I CEO Michael Niggel.

Announcement of winners will be held during a gala on Nov. 1 at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, Virginia.

A panel of industry and government professionals will pick the winners on all categories from the selected finalists out of the list of nominees submitted by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce and the Professional Services Council.

Categories are spread across four revenue sections for Contractor of the Year, three revenue sections for “Executive of the Year” and the “Program of the Year” category.
