NASA New England Outreach Center Honors Small Business,
A&M Electronics

Bill Chan, President, A&M Electronics, received the NASA New England Outreach Center's "Commitment to Excellence" Award at an awards ceremony culminating NASA's 12th Annual Technology and Business Conference held in Albany, New York.
A&M Electronics was recognized for outstanding subcontractor support to Raytheon Company in its contacting role to NASA in meeting its mission requirements.

A&M Electronics defines the concept of a value-added reseller. They expend the extra effort to expedite quotes and deliveries, follow up with their suppliers to ensure timely deliveries. They do their homework and provide all technical details that requestors need to make sound decisions regarding models or manufacturers of required products. They voluntarily tell if the model number being requested is about to be discontinued, and then they suggest a replacement model at the same or lower price which offers identical or improved functionality. They can find prices which beat catalog prices on electronic parts. A&M Electronics is a certified small disadvantaged, woman owned business.

A follow-up presentation at Johnson Space Center will be held to commend the work of
A&M Electronics.

The NASA Technology and Business Annual Conference featured technology and procurement opportunities, discussions and networking between representatives from NASA, prime contractors, and small, disadvantaged, minority and woman-owned businesses. The conference was coordinated by the NASA Business Outreach Program, NASA's New England Outreach Center which is managed by the Center for Technology Commercialization, CTC. CTC is also the Northeast Regional Technology Transfer Center for NASA, which is one of six such NASA Centers. CTC's primary mission is to help provide nationwide access to NASA-developed technology and applications for industry commercialization.
