Lobo Wins the George M. Low (GML) Award for a Second Time
word from NASA Headquarters that Sierra Lobo has won the prestigious George M.
Low Award in the Small Business Service category for 2011.
Sierra Lobo previously won the GML Award
in 2007, in the Small Business Product category, which includes hardware,
software, research, and/or technology development. Previous winners must wait
three years for re-nomination; therefore, it is especially noteworthy for our
nomination and win in the minimum allowable time.
The GML Award is NASA's premier quality and performance
award. This award program recognizes large and small businesses that
demonstrate excellence and outstanding technical and managerial achievements in
quality and performance on NASA-related contracts. NASA selects only four
contracts each year for the GML Award.
The award is named after George M. Low, a NASA leader who
was dedicated to quality and excellence.
George M. Low's career and achievements spanned many
fields: space science, aeronautics, technology, and education. In the Space
Program, he provided management and direction for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo,
and advanced manned missions.
George M. Low was a man with a vision - a vision shared by
many who also dreamed that America should lead the way in astronautics and
aeronautics. George M. Low stretched the boundaries of excellence, and by his
example, we are motivated to do the same. Dedication to excellence is part of
our Sierra Lobo culture.
