WARNER ROBINS -- A small, local military contractor expects to add at least a dozen jobs as a result of a contract to help the Army improve medical services.
Ho-Chunk Technical Solutions, which currently employs six people in Warner Robins, is one of eight companies included in a $99 million federal service contract, according to a company release. The company is part of the All Native Group, the federal services contracting division of Ho-Chunk Inc., which is owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
The five-year contract provides support for the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency. The contract calls for one base year and four option years. Janice Jessen, a spokeswoman for Ho-Chunk, said because the length of the contract is indefinite, she could not give an amount for Ho-Chunks portion of the contract.
However, she estimated the contract will add at least a dozen jobs to the Warner Robins operation and possibly up to 20.
She said Ho-Chunks role is to provide a wide range of services aimed at improving the Armys delivery of medical goods and services.
The Warner Robins office currently provides information technology services for Robins Air Force Base.
Our team understands the mission and has policies, procedures and training plans in place to execute day one, Heath Rist, vice president of All Native Group, said in a release. We are prepared to operate in a highly professional manner while planning, maintaining and executing mobilization readiness, military operations and contingency missions in support of the Army Medical Materiel Command.
