John Lee, owner of Winlee Corporation, Toms River, Larry Doyle, president of the Human Factor, Mt. Laurel, and Kiran Gil, president and founder of Pars Environmental Inc., Robbinsville, will focus on how DPTAC helped each of them obtain government and corporate contracts in 2005 using DPTAC's free counseling services. "Obtaining this kind of work is not easy, especially for minorities, women and veterans, categories which fit most of our clients," said Dolcey Chaplin, an attorney and Ridgewood resident who has directed DPTAC since 1997.
At the event, Altenkirch will sign an annual contract with the Department of Defense. To date, DPTAC's influence has resulted in awards of more than $966 million in contracts in New Jersey. Chaplin will receive an award of excellence, "Outstanding Achievement in Support of the Department of Defense," from the Defense Contract Management Agency. NOTE TO LOCAL EDITORS/REPORTERS: Call Sheryl Weinstein, 973-596-3433 or 3436 to interview Chaplin or to attend the event. The signing takes place at NJIT's Guttenberg Information Technologies Center, Lock Street and Central Avenue, Room 3730, 10 a.m.-noon. Breakfast will be served. Colonel Mitchell A. Howell, Commander DCMA, Springfield, and NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch will make brief speeches.
