EDC’s G.O. Contract Program Leads to $15 Million Local Contract
Southeast Aerospace wins exclusive contract with Department of Justice.
Space Coast, FL (February 07, 2019) – Southeast Aerospace, a leading Aerospace solutions company, has announced its win of an exclusive $15 million contract from the Department of Justice to integrate and install Airborne Imaging Systems into a variety of both fixed and rotor-wing aircraft. The opportunity was first identified using the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast’s (EDC) G.O. Contracts program.
First introduced in 2013, the EDC’s G.O. Contracts program combines online access to a comprehensive government contracting resource with personalized training and targeted reports to serve as a tool for small to medium sized businesses to seize government contracting opportunities. To date the program has brought $66 million in contract awards to more than 20 small businesses throughout the Space Coast, and that number is expected to grow.
Southeast Aerospace’s contract is a five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity for installation and integration worth $15 million dollars. The Airborne Imaging Systems will provide the Department of Justice a modern and reliable solution to support their mission.
“The EDC’s G.O. Contracts program continues to be a catalyst for growth for our small and medium sized companies,” said Lynda Weatherman, president and CEO of the EDC. “$66 million in contract wins is an outstanding achievement, and with over 50 current users, I expect this program will continue to be successful in bringing more opportunities for the Space Coast community.”
“We're enthusiastic to participate with the DOJ on this program," stated Greg Rodriguez, Vice President Technical Services for Southeast Aerospace. "Our long history of custom manufacturing, kitting and aircraft modifications, provided us with the leverage to offer the customer a cost-effective solution to support their mission."
