It's been another very busy week in the land of Business Development, especially for the proposal group. Michelle Nixon and her team continue to support Elizabeth Matthews' efforts to develop a presence at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH under the Engineering, Professional and Administrative Support Services (EPASS) contract. To date, they have developed and submitted Prime bids for four task orders and are diligently working on three additional proposals at the current time. Odyssey has also supported three additional efforts from a Sub perspective. Late Breaking Development: Congratulations to Elizabeth on her first win under the EPASS program!! Odyssey was part of the Sawdey Solutions Team who won the Agile Combat Support Task Order competed under OASIS Pool 3. We're expecting to add five FTE at Wright-Patt and Robins AFB.
On the Washington, DC front, we received a set of ENs on the SAFTAS II effort and are in the process of generating our response to Air Force District of Washington. An award is expected sometime this summer with a January 2016 performance start date.
Odyssey's Senior Management Team was in Colorado Springs earlier this week, and met with the workforce at Peterson AFB while in town. During the All-hands session, Odyssey's CEO, Randy Nunley, discussed some of our other near-term pursuits including two large Task Orders under the recently-awarded ETASS II IDIQ. Odyssey will be pursuing the Engineering and Technical Acquisition Support Services work for both AFLCMC/HB and AFLCMC/HI. Several hundred engineering and management positions will be available at Hanscom AFB, Peterson AFB, Wright-Patterson AFB, and Gunter Annex to Maxwell AFB. We've begun planning efforts for these proposals and will be in full development over the next two months. If you would like to lend your technical expertise in large enterprise software systems, DIACAP/DIACRMF, FEDRAMP, or ITIL certification processes, and the concept of operations for space and ground surveillance, communication, and command and control systems, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
