Contractors — especially general contractors qualified to handle military base work — and sub trades have been invited to an industry day relating to opportunities to restore Camp Lejeune and Cherry Point from Hurricane Florence.

The North Carolina Military Business Center (NCMBC) says Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Mid Atlantic leaders are setting the stage for the $1.7 billion recovery effort.

“Businesses of all sizes are encouraged to take part in the event to learn more about the acquisition strategy that includes 31 military construction projects in multiple solicitation packages, NCMBC says.

The free Aug 20 program at the Harris Conference Center in Charlotte includes:

  • Engagement with senior leadership from NAVFAC and Marine Corps Installations Command;
  • Detailed acquisition presentation detailing the agile strategy designed to speedily deliver on the volume of contracting requirements;
  • Industry Q&A session; and
  • Industry registration for one-on-one sessions with government contracting officials.

“NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic is eager to engage industry on the proposed acquisition strategy and the construction execution approach to achieve the end goal: successful project award and delivery of quality facilities,” NCMBC says.

Following a general morning session, one-on-one afternoon meetings with NAVFAC representatives will be scheduled with the first 50 qualified companies who register.

Priority for the individual meetings is:
Priority 1: General Contractors
Priority 2: Specialty Contractors
Priority 3: A/E Contractors
