GENEDGE has received a $1 million multi-year award from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for assistance in the Growth through MedAccred project.

The award was issued by NIST in response to the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Competitive Awards Program submission by GENEDGE. The request for proposal related to critical manufacturing technologies; supply chain requirements; potential business services, including information services; and other technologies or services that would enhance global competitiveness for U.S. manufacturers.

MedAccred is an accreditation program for critical process manufacturing operations throughout the medical device and instrument supply chain. The Performance Review Institute (PRI) administers the program, which is designed to replicate the highly successful Aerospace Industry’s NADCAP program. MEP Center capabilities in delivering Quality and Process Management services provide for an established, strong network for assisting suppliers for the accreditation audit. GENEDGE’s President / Executive Director, Bill Donohue, noted that “GENEDGE’s specific service offerings fit well in assisting companies through the audit process for this new accreditation program. Establishing these capabilities will ultimately help in the advancement of new technologies in the medical industry, enhancing Virginia company competitiveness in this high value global market.”
