Even before the federal government’s vast NextGen effort to modernize air traffic control, the William J. Hughes Technical Center in Egg Harbor Township was a major contributor to the area economy.
Companies interested in possibly doing business with the center and its affiliates may wish to consider attending a program Thursday in Atlantic City presented by the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Procurement Technical Assistance Center.
The seminar will focus on the Federal Aviation Administration’s procurement forecast for 2012-13.
Businesses attending will have the opportunity to meet with the FAA’s small business specialist and other contracting and technical representatives to discuss the possibilities of working on related government contracts.
To get an idea of the type of work and contracts available, the current FAA procurement forecast may be viewed online at http://www.sbo.faa.gov/sbo/
The FAA makes the procurement forecast available to business owners in order to provide small businesses — and small businesses owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals — with reasonable procurement opportunities in accordance with federal law, an executive order by the president and the FAA’s own small business policies.
