The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Little Rock District has extended the deadline for registration to attend a fiscal year 2014 industry day to talk with contractors about work on its facilities and hydropower projects. Registration now is due by May 23 for the meetings June 2-4.
The Corps previously called for registration by May 10.
The Little Rock District held a similar event in 2013 to meet with contractors about its construction, engineering, and operations and maintenance plans. The district's mission includes both military and civil projects, featuring 12 multi-purpose lakes, 13 locks and dams, 308 miles of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, 178 parks, and seven hydroelectric projects. Among its hydro plants are 90-MW Norfork on the North Fork River, 340-MW Bull Shoals on the White River, 115-MW Ozark on the Arkansas River, 96-MW Greers Ferry on the Little Red River and 200-MW Table Rock on the White River.
The industry day is planned for market research to help the district draft acquisition plans for fiscal year 2014. Day One, June 2, from noon to 4 p.m., is to focus on presentations from various Corps representatives on business opportunities. Day Two, June 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., is to be a workshop and training on registering for government opportunities. Day Three, June 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., is to include one-on-one sessions with each company attending.
The event is to be held at the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, 2301 University Ave., Little Rock, AR 72204.
