GSA Supports Ft Walton Beach Air Force Customers with Acquisition Training Seminars

On May 12 and 14th 2015, the Region 4 Customer Accounts & Research (CAR) team held two Acquisition Seminars for customers at Eglin AFB and Hurlburt Field. The GSA team presenting was made up of Region 4 CAR Customer Service Directors, Todd Cook, Rachel Wynne, and Jennifer Rape; Office of Strategic Programs BD Director, Larry Hale; Region 4 Senior Fleet Service Representative, Michael Bares; Region 4 Assisted Acquisition Services Senior Contracting Officer, Jason Boudreaux; and IT Schedule 70 Director, Cheryl Thornton.

The attendees received 8 CLP credits and walked away with knowledge of: 

  • The purpose, benefits, and regulatory foundation of the Multiple Awards Schedule (MAS) Program, the Alliant GWAC program and the IT Schedule 70 (NITCP) program;
