Port Madison Enterprises Construction awarded $99M Navy contract

The U.S. Navy has selected the Suquamish Tribe’s Port Madison Enterprises Construction Corporation, or PMECC, for a five-year contract of up to $99 million in construction, repair, and alteration projects for Naval Facilities Engineering Command Northwest.

“We’ve worked hard at expanding our capabilities while maintaining our standards for delivering top-quality projects to our clients,” PMECC’s CEO Scott George said in the announcement of the new contract Oct. 3. “We are proud of this award and proud of our growing role in serving those who serve our country.”

The work done by PMECC will primarily take place at naval installations in the Puget Sound region, but will also include projects at Navy facilities across ten other states, Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

“Known in the industry as an ‘indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity’ contract, the agreement will cover multiple projects over the next five years, with the contract approving overall spending limits in advance, PMECC will be able to respond quickly to the Navy’s specific needs as they arise,” George said.

According to an announcement from the U.S. Department of Defence, who awarded the contract to PMECC, this contract is intended to provide rapid response for construction, maintenance, rehabilitation, demolition, and repair of real property in a cost-effective manner.

The first order under the contract is already in, with the Navy awarding nearly $200,000 for new fencing around Naval Base Kitsap’s controlled industrial area in Bremerton.

PMECC’s bid was among five proposals competing for the contract.

“We’re a local construction company. A lot of times these bigger contracts tend to go to out of state contractors. The fact that we are local and we got this is really going to boost the local economy,” George said.

Tribal officials say the scope of the contract marks a new milestone in the company’s development and the Suquamish Tribe’s growing reach.

“PMECC is no longer constrained by our reservation, county, or even state borders. This growth allows us to continue to export our services and expertise to reinvest revenue back into our community in bigger and better ways,” said Port Madison Enterprises Board of Directors’ President Greg George said. “We appreciate the support from all who have served on Tribal Council and the PME Board since PMECC was formed in 2008, without their support we could not have grown the company to this level.”

Suquamish Tribe Chairman Leonard Forsman said the Tribe was pleased to learn of the new contract.

“This award represents a new era in the relationship between the Navy and our enterprise arm,” Forsman said. “It’s a milestone in our growth as a viable defense contractor and a sign of the Navy’s recognition of PMECC as a vendor that delivers excellent results, building on our ancestral presence here in Kitsap County.”

Forsman congratulated the PMECC Board and staff and the Navy for the historic achievement.
