Assisted NC businesses in winning 2,667 contracts valued up to $26.55 billion


GENERAL.  The Department of Defense (DoD) is completing a $7 billion construction boom on military bases within North Carolina.  As new construction projects are completed, military installations are turning to Operation & Maintenance (O&M) funding to execute additional sustainment projects on existing facilities.  Although new construction will revert back to pre-2006 funding levels, new construction at Fort Bragg and Camp Lejeune will still approach $200 million annually.  Sustaining, restoring and modernizing (SRM) existing infrastructure will be a primary strategy for the Department of Defense for addressing facility needs for the foreseeable future.  O&M funding provides new opportunities for North Carolina construction-related businesses that are capable to support sustainment, restoration and modernization projects.     

Home to thousands of general and specialty contractors, construction suppliers, architectural, engineering and sustainable energy firms and environmental engineering and service providers, North Carolina businesses are capable of performing new, O&M or SRM federal construction contracts on military bases and facilities worldwide.  

The NCMBC coordinates with all military bases and over 40 federal agencies to secure forecasts, identify future opportunities, and provides web-based market intelligence on future contracts and current contractors.  The NCMBC also provides training on federal construction bidding and project execution, builds mentor-protégé and other teaming alliances to compete for federal projects and connects major prime contractors with North Carolina designers, suppliers and subcontractors. 

  • RQ Construction is pursuing Project P-1280, the 2nd Radio Battalion Operations Complex at Camp Lejeune, NC.  It is anticipated that plans and specifications will be available during the week of May 26th.  Access to the plans will be restricted to those General Contractors and Subcontractors who have been vetted by the government, and the process for vetting takes about two weeks.  The vetting process involves two aspects. 
    • First, your company must send a letter on company letterhead appointing one person as the point of contact for your company. 
    • Second, you must send a list of employees who need access to the plans, including the employee information required on the attached list. 

Once the government has these two documents from you, they will do the required investigation and notify you that your company has been approved, and they will send you a link to the plans and specifications directly.

RQ has uploaded a description of the project, a sample letter for the appointment of a point of contact, and the blank excel sheet for employee information to our online database for subcontractors.  You must be enrolled in RQ’s system to be able to access the files.  You can submit your information and enroll by clicking on the link provided.
