Middlesex Community College Forum: Doing Business with the Department of Defense21 Oct

On October 19, 2011, I attended a forum on “Doing Business with the Department of Defense” that was held at the Middlesex Community College in Lowell, Massachusetts. This event was hosted by Congresswoman Niki Tsongas in partnership with the New England Clean Energy Council (NECEC). Seasoned business executives and DOD officials explained the most recent green acquisition mandates, details about green procurement and suggestions on locating contracting opportunities. Panelists included:

• Rick Hess, VP at American Superconductors

• Stephen Lasher, Director of Business Development for R&D, Satcon

• Sandra Ledbetter, Central Mass Procurement Technical Assistance Center

• Andrew (AJ) Raiber, Contracting, Army Corps of Engineers Contracting

• Bill Donaldson, Electronic Systems Wing Small Business Office

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program was discussed as an excellent opportunity to be considered by entrepreneurs as a means of commercializing a product or process. For more information, please contact me (jeff@jheversonconsulting.com).

Attendees will receive slide presentations. Others can download a document entitled, “From Barracks to the Battlefield, Clean Energy Innovation and America’s Armed Forces.” This report, prepared by the PEW Charitable Trusts, provides an excellent overview of the military clean energy requirements in terms of vehicles, biofuels, as well as energy efficiency, renewables and storage at bases.
