Industry Day to Highlight Contracting Opportunities at NASA Stennis
Industry Day will be held Sept. 2 at NASA's John C. Stennis Space Center to inform contractors and small businesses about upcoming contracting opportunities at Stennis Space Center.
The event is hosted by the Office of Procurement and will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The morning session will be held at StenniSphere, the visitor center at Stennis, and will include an overview of upcoming projects and updates on current construction projects, such as the A-3 Test Stand in support of the Constellation Program. Small business specialists from the NASA Shared Services Center and Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., also will give an overview of their contracting opportunities.
The afternoon session will take place in the Logtown Conference Room, Building 1100, Room 11161 where contractors will have networking opportunities and may consult with small business representatives.
Michelle Stracener, small business specialist with the Stennis Office of Procurement, said Industry Day is part of a growing effort to work closely with contractors and small businesses. "The small business industry is very important to the economy of the Gulf Coast and we want small businesses to be informed of the many different opportunities we have to offer here at Stennis Space Center," she said.
Company representation is limited to a maximum of three people. All representatives must be United States citizens.
Attendees must provide the following information for each company representative no later than 3 p.m. on Aug. 28: company name, point of contact's first and last name, e-mail address and telephone number. They also should indicate concurrence or non-concurrence to including their company's information in the list of attendees that will be published following Industry Day.
