FORT BENNING, Georgia (June 23, 2014) -- Officials from the Mission and Installation Contracting Command conducted an acquisition forecast open house for small businesses June 18 at Fort Benning, Georgia.

Officials said the event received outstanding participation from 81 contractors representing more than 40 different companies. Contractors heard from a variety of presenters including several requiring activities, representatives from the Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center and MICC-Fort Benning personnel.

Brenda Clark, the deputy director of MICC-Fort Benning, led the open house with assistance from Steve Magner, the small business specialist for the contracting office.

Officials distributed a one-page summary of all requirements presented during the event to each participant along with a survey for feedback.

"Feedback from the event was very positive with most indicating interest in returning in December for our second open house event," Clark said. "Some suggestions were to provide five-year acquisition plans for recurring requirements, breakout sessions to allow the small businesses to network with any large businesses present and contracting personnel, and a block of instruction with basic information for contractors new to the industry -- all of which will be incorporated into our next event."
