Published Feb. 24, 2021

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Galveston District, will host a virtual Industry Day for small business government contractors March 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 

The event helps small business navigate through the U.S. government’s contracting processes and presents upcoming work for fiscal year 2021.  It will also provide an opportunity for companies to network and meet potential vendors and subcontractors currently supporting the district’s contracting requirements. 

“As the mission and programs across the Galveston District continue to grow , we rely heavily on small businesses and the support they provide,” said Galveston District Chief of Contracting Jeffrey Neill.  “Now is the time for small businesses in our area to network and team up, so they are ready to work with us providing  innovative solutions when ‘sources sought’ notices are posted.”

The one-day event will include morning sessions and an open forum in the afternoon for participants to meet with district staff from the Operations and Maintenance Division, Engineering and Construction Division and architecture subject matter experts.  

The Galveston District has a diverse mission that encompasses primarily civil works projects – with the bulk of projects being dredging or dredging-related, such as levee repair, hydrographic surveying, dredged materials placement area repair, soils and water testing. The district also provides support to the Department of Homeland Security within our district boundaries in the areas of vertical construction and architecture and engineering services. Work also includes facility maintenance and repairs on the Jadwin Building that houses the district’s main offices, as well as other district offices located in Brownsville, Corpus Christi and Port Arthur, Texas.
