Drake State NASA-MSFC Team Visit Campus


Top officials from NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) Office of Procurement, including David Brock, Small Business Specialist, were on the Drake State Campus recently touring the facilities that coincide with training and services needed to support small businesses.


                As part of the NASA Small Business effort, individual industry assistance offices have dedicated small business specialists who engage in outreach efforts in their communities.  Each NASA facility does procurement independently of one another, so working alongside community partners and making local connections is key for success in developing and growing local small businesses who want NASA contracts.


                Members of the delegation came from NASA MSFC, but also Jacobs, CH2M, Aetos, Teledyne Brown Engineering, URS, as well as staff from various MSFC offices.  All the visitors were impressed by the technology and programs offered at Drake State and were encouraged by what is available to support individuals and small business in our community.
