FORT WALKER, Virginia – Garrison commander Lieutenant Colonel Jason Duffy signed two Intergovernmental Service Agreements (IGSAs) with local municipalities this morning to streamline installation efficiency and re-invest government dollars into local economies.
Leaders of the towns and counties surrounding Fort Walker, as well as representatives from the Department of the Army G9 Partnerships, Fort Walker Command and Staff members, participated in the signing ceremony for the agreements between Fort Walker and King George County and another with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission. King George County will provide engineering services to Fort Walker, while the partnership with Northern Virginia Regional Commission will allows Fort Walker to purchase road maintenance supplies, such as gravel and sand in bulk from the Virginia Department of Transportation.
“This Partnership puts another job in Virginia, another dollar in the local economy and brings faster service to Fort Walker. I look forward to finding more opportunities to work with our community partners outside the installation” said Duffy, when asked about the importance of the relationships.
