Cherokee Nation Technology Solutions, a subsidiary of Cherokee Nation Businesses, was recently awarded a $4.48 million contract with the United States Air Force.
CNTS is providing property management support for the Air Force Civil Engineer Center at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. The 8(a), tribally owned business has been tasked to ensure the Air Force receives value for long-term real estate transactions, while providing outreach and training support to stakeholders and management.
“It’s always gratifying for Cherokee Nation to provide support to our Armed Forces,” said Bill John Baker, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. “Thanks to numerous government contracts, we’re continuing to offer professional services that directly impact the lives of our nation’s soldiers and their families.”
This program also includes real property and portfolio management support for all Air Force leases, including financial, audit and technical analyses, lease management and acquisition support.
“The current state of the national economy has created an emphasis on financial accountability and the importance of long-term planning and budgeting,” said Greg Kilkenny, president of CNTS. “We are honored to have the opportunity to assist the Air Force in its effort to maximize its resources.”
CNTS provides technical support services and project support personnel to its defense and civilian agency partners. CNTS provides a tailored management approach for complex government programs and disciplines, including information technology, science, engineering, construction, research and development, facilities management, program management, and mission support.
