North Wind Lands Two Multi-Billion Dollar Contracts with the Air Force
Idaho Falls, ID. January 23, 2008 – North Wind, Inc., an Idaho Falls based environmental and engineering services firm, announced today recent contract awards for two separate Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contracts with the U.S. Air Force with a combined contract ceiling of $7 Billion.
On Friday, January 11, North Wind received notification from the Air Education and Training Command Contracting Officer of award of a ten-year Sustainment/Restoration & Modernization (S/R&M) Acquisition Task Order Contract (SATOC) in support of the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency (AFCESA). SATOC represents the primary contract vehicle for AFCESA’s S/R&M Program. Under this contract North Wind will perform sustainment, restoration and modernization construction to facilities and infrastructure on various military installations worldwide, including locations in remote, austere, and hostile environments.
In September, 2007 North Wind received notification of selection for award of a five-year contract with the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment (AFCEE) to provide Architect-Engineering services under the Air Force’s 4PAE08 Program. North Wind will perform Title I, Title II, and other A-E services to administer, coordinate, and technically support environmental; military construction; military family housing; and facility sustainment, restoration, and modernization programs of interest to the government worldwide. Although these programs could include work in remote, austere and/or hostile locations, work will primarily be performed at Air Force installations in the United States.
These contracts represent North Wind’s continued growth and expansion into the Department of Defense (DOD) sector. To date, North Wind has performed DOD projects for the U.S. Air Force (AFCEE and AFCESA), U.S. Navy (Naval Facilities Command), U.S. Army, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Alaska, Omaha, Mobile, Seattle, Sacramento, Kansas, and Vicksburg Districts). Sylvia Medina, President and CEO of North Wind, commented “The recent Air Force awards enhance our reputation as a small business leader in the environmental restoration, A-E, and construction industries. We look forward to continuing our support to our nationwide DOD customers and are very eager to tackle new opportunities at worldwide locations.”
