As part of its commitment to fostering relationships with small business, ICF International (NASDAQ: ICFI) will partner with Log-In Systems, Inc. (LIS) under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Mentor Protégé Program.

The assistance can result in significant small business development.
“The Mentor Protégé Program is a part of ICF’s corporate strategy, as well as a part of our corporate social responsibility agenda,” said Andrew Robinson, an ICF senior vice president and board member of the Industry Advisory Council. “Small businesses are a generator of both jobs and innovative thinking, and I look forward to working with Log-In Systems and their management.”
LIS specializes in several areas, including program management, strategic planning, grant management, financial management, logistics support, quality management and certification, operational planning, and transitional management. LIS also has provided commercial clients within the health care industry with IT support services, including help desk support, specialized software development, and back office IT product support and training.
