PMO Turnover, NETCENTSII Award Dates UPDATED
The NETCENTSII Executive and Program Management offices are undergoing change. AFPEO BES Enterprise Services Division Chief, Debra Foster, briefed industry at the PEO-BES Vendor Exchange Day held last week at Gunter AFB. Ms. Foster announced her own retirement and replacement by Herb Hunter. Ms Foster briefed three additional changes:
Steve Davis who has been the NC PMO for 4 years is being replaced by Gerry Smothers (formerly Deputy PMO).
Management continuity will be provided by Ardis Hearn, Engineering branch and Cynthia Crews, Contracting branch. The award time line for both the NETOPS Full & Open and the Small Business contracts are being “reevaluated.” ( no longer March 2013).
NOTE: The NETCENTSII Awards timeline graphic on the USAF site continues to show March 2013 for both NETOPS contracts.
In other sidebar discussions at the Vendor Exchange Day, BES personnel indicated it was likely that the NETOPS Small Business contract would be awarded before the Full & Open category contracts. This would be consistent with the renewed emphasis on Small Business utilization signed off by USAF senior executives earlier this year.
