Three procurement directorates from Hanscom Air Force Base directly awarded a total of more than $1.4 billion to small businesses in fiscal year 2021.
This amount exceeds the directorates’ joint goal of $840 million in small business awards under the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center and the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, Air Force Materiel Command said Thursday.
The Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence and Networks (C3I&N) Directorate and Digital Directorate are parts of AFLCMC; and the Nuclear Command, Control and Communications Integration Directorate operates within the AFNWC.
The base’s FY 2021 awards include Digital’s $19.3 million to Tomorrow.Io for 3D weather and ocean data and nearly $300,000 from C3I&N’s PlatformOne group to Black Label for cyber and information warfare software factory support.
“From Small Business Innovation Research programs to COVID-19 projects, through production and sustainment efforts, here at Hanscom there is a strong desire to support small businesses across the entire spectrum,” said Jeff Emmons, director of small business programs at Hanscom.
