The objective of the event is to educate prospective contractors (Polish and international) on how to successfully compete for U.S. military construction contracts and explain the application of U.S. law to the contractors. Further, it will assist potential contractors with timely registration in U.S. government systems. The event will provide networking opportunities and encourage the most highly qualified pool of contractors to bid on future work.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages design and construction contracts on behalf of the U.S. government in support of U.S. military and NATO defense. This is the second event for industry hosted by USACE in Poland. In 2015, Europe District held a similar Industry Day with support from the Polish Ministry of National Defense and Ministry of Economy at the MOE facility in Warsaw. This was held in preparation for Aegis-Ashore Missile Defense projects for the U.S. Navy and Missile Defense Agency – currently under construction in Redzikowo.
USACE Europe District has upcoming construction projects for the U.S. Army (USA), the U.S. Air Force (USAF), the U.S. Navy (USN), the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and other U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and Federal Agencies. These projects will be designed to improve infrastructure, and interoperability of U.S. forces with Polish and NATO partners. Projects will be located throughout Poland.
