In December alone, there were 11 actions valued at $881,061.37 in the local area.

This represents "prime" contract dollars only and doesn't include subcontract spending, according to Lt. Col. Jonathan Wright, 81st CONS commander

"The squadron's contracts with local businesses generally reflect a wide variety of service requirements that support the installation," Colonel Wright said. "For instance, the variety spans services such as supporting the chapel to services in the transportation industry."

As the squadron reviewed its annual expenditures, it reported service contracts involving 618 service contract employees and 768 construction contract employees who reside in the local area.
