Registration open for MICC nationwide industry outreach

By Daniel P. Elkins Mission and Installation Contracting Command Public Affairs Office

Registration is open through March 12 at for the virtual Mission and Installation Contracting Command Advance Planning Briefing for Industry taking place March 22-26.

MICC officials announced in November the virtual APBI event as their single, command-wide effort for 2021 to reach small business and large industry representatives and forecast 2021, 2022 and 2023 contract requirements in support of varied Army mission partners.

The event’s first day includes briefings by the MICC commanding general, deputy to the commanding general, supported Army mission partners, and director of the Army Office of Small Business Programs.

The following two days, March 23 and 24, are dedicated to briefing forecasted requirements by the top North American Industry Classification System codes and sectors beginning at 8:30 a.m. each day.

Industry sectors briefed March 23 will include NAICS Sector 23 Construction and NAICS Sector 56 Administrative and Support, and Waste Management and Remediation Services.

Forecast requirements briefed March 24 include NAICS Sector 54 Professional, Scientific and Technical Services. Additional contracting requirements covered on the third day include NAICS Sectors 21, 22, 32, 48, 51, 52, 53, 61, 62, 71, 72 and 81.

The MICC will conduct industry days on the fourth and fifth days of the event. Requirements in support of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center multiple-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract as well as U.S. Army Sustainment Command full food service contracts will be discussed March 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. On March 26, requirements in support of the Fort Polk Joint Readiness Training Center in Louisiana will be discussed from 8:30 to 11 a.m.

While the virtual APBI does not permit time for small and large business representatives to engage with contracting officials and their supported mission partners, the MICC is partnering with the Virginia Procurement Technical Assistance Center to conduct virtual matchmaking April 19 and 20 at no cost. The deadline for limited registration is March 29. Additional details and registration can be found at

Amy Ulisse, an assistant director for the office of small business programs at MICC Field Directorate Office Fort Eustis, Virginia, is leading planning efforts for the APBI.

“The purpose of the matchmaking is to connect industry with MICC acquisition professionals and our mission partners,” she said. “The virtual sessions will allow industry representatives to share their capabilities and ask questions. It gives them face time, so to speak.”

Government contracting officers and contract specialists from throughout the MICC will coordinate between large business prime contractors, small business representatives and Army organizations to facilitate matchmaking appointments to discuss capabilities.
