May 9, 2012
FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas -- Officials from the Mission and Installation Contracting Command here are hosting free small business and industry outreach events the first week of June at Fort Sam Houston's Blesse Auditorium to provide information on contracting opportunities with the Army.
The small business event takes place June 4 from 1 to 5 p.m. and begins with an hour-long training session. Sign-in and networking begins at noon. Following the training, small business representatives will have a matchmaking opportunity to meet individually with contracting officers and members of the MICC Office of Small Business Programs to discuss contracting opportunities in more detail.
An industry outreach event takes place June 5 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sign-in and networking begin at 7:15 a.m. The event will present forecasted contracting opportunities from the U.S. Army's Forces Command, Installation Management Command, Reserve Command and Training and Doctrine Command. The forecasts are intended for informational and marketing purposes and not a specific offer or commitment by the Army to fund opportunities.
Both events are open to all industry representatives whose companies can provide products and services to the Mission and Installation Contracting Command. Industry representatives interested in attending the small business or industry outreach events should register by May 26 at www.army.mil/micc. Those planning to attend both days should register for each event. Identification will be required during sign-in.
Blesse Auditorium is located in Bldg. 2841 at 3630 Stanley Road on Fort Sam Houston, which is just inside the Harry Wurzbach gate.
The Mission and Installation Contracting Command is responsible for providing contracting support for the warfighter across Army commands, installations and activities located throughout the continental United States, Alaska and Puerto Rico. In fiscal 2011, the command executed more than 63,000 contract actions worth almost $7 billion across the Army.
