Maintaining Small Business Relationships
As contracting continues to evolve and switch between different procurement agencies, it becomes even more critical for J&J to maintain and foster our small business relationships.
EXAMPLE: Back in January of 2018, we were re–competing our task order at Fort Hood to provide O&M for Buildings 36000 & 36018 with Central Utility Plant support, when both the contracting agency (USACE–Hunstville Center to the GSA Federal Schedule) and the acquisition classification (Unrestricted to Small Business) changed.
Fortunately, we were able to reach out to our Base Operations & Support Services partner at Warner Robins AFB, GA, Native Energy & Technology, Inc., to bid the opportunity with us. It was a last minute Teaming Arrangement that proved to be extremely beneficial with the award to Native on 07 June 2018.
We look forward to growing our partnership with Native as we pursue new opportunities!
