TULSA, Okla. — Cherokee Nation Construction Services is one of five small businesses supporting a $25 million contract with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast.

The Cherokee Nation-owned company, along with other four businesses, will perform construction work at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth, Texas.

“We have worked hard to establish a reputation of excellence in the marketplace,” said John Sparkman, executive general manager of Cherokee Nation Construction Services. “We have a longstanding relationship serving our government clients and feel especially proud when our work is supporting the needs of our nation’s service men and women.”

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity multiple award is a five-year contract focused on general building projects for industrial, administrative and community support facilities. Task orders will be issued for work, including new construction, renovations, alterations, repairs and demolition.

“Small businesses play an important part in the success of any industry,” said Steven Bilby, president of Cherokee Nation’s diversified businesses. “This contract is a wonderful win for CNCS and an even better victory for small business. We look forward to supporting the needs of the Navy and appreciate their ongoing commitment to small business.”

NAVFAC Southeast is dedicated to providing contract opportunities to small businesses. Each year the organization establishes target goals for the amount of work supported by Small Business, Small Disadvantaged Business, Historically Underutilized Business Zone Small Business, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business and Women-Owned Small Business categories.
