CNGS extends privatizing military housing contract
CATOOSA, Okla. — Cherokee Nation Government Solutions is continuing its support of Booz Allen Hamilton and the United States Air Force in converting military family housing from government-owned and operated to contractor-owned and operated.

The work is taking place at Hurlbert Field at Elgin AFB in Florida and Seymour-Johnson AFB located in Goldsboro, S.C.

The goal of the project is to enable the government to leverage private-sector capital for improvements to housing for our country’s military families.

The project was first awarded June 2012. With the estimated $227,000 contract extension, CNGS will continue to provide engineering and architectural support to see the Air Force and private developer through the transfer.

“This is a terrific project as it pertains directly to the shortage of quality, affordable housing available to our service men and women and their families,” said John Stowers, CNGS program manager. “By leveraging private-sector expertise and capital, we are not only improving our military personnel’s quality of life, but helping in retention and readiness as well.”

In business since 1992, Cherokee Nation Government Solutions provides the quality technical support services and project support personnel to support and supplement the mission, expertise and skill sets of federal, state and local government.

CNGS locates specific candidates for rapid response requests in areas including science, engineering, construction, information technology, research & development, facilities management, program management and mission support. Wholly owned by the Cherokee Nation, CNGS is part of the Cherokee Nation Businesses family of companies.
