WASHINGTON, April 25, 2008 - Capstone Consulting Group, LLC, a woman-owned small business specializing in acquisition, budget, and financial consulting support with an emphasis on pandemic preparedness, announced today that it has received a Small Business Achievement Award from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The award was presented to Capstone Consulting Group by Ms. Elaine Duke, Deputy Under Secretary for Management, during the 4th Annual DHS Small Business Awards Ceremony held in Washington, D.C. on April 25, 2008.

"We are honored to receive this Small Business Achievement Award, and would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to those in the Office of Health Affairs who nominated us to receive it.
