Fiscal Year 2012 Wrap-Up
We have closed the books on Fiscal Year 2012 and it was another banner year for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
In FY12, USACE obligated $22 billion through 85,000 contract actions, representing 20 percent of the Department of the Army’s obligated dollars and 24 percent of the Army’s contracting actions this year.
We awarded $7.26 billion to small businesses in FY12, accounting for 33 percent of the Army’s $21 billion total small business obligations. In comparison with other contracting activities that obligated more than $5 billion in FY12, USACE had the highest percentage of dollars awarded to Small Businesses, Small Disadvantaged Businesses, Women-Owned Small Businesses, Service-Disabled Veteran Small Businesses and HubZone Businesses. Thanks to your efforts, USACE broke small business records for the third straight year in a row!
Even more important than the numbers are the people – our hard-working professionals who ensure delivery and management of USACE programs and the people around the world who depend upon our projects for safety, security, economic prosperity and quality of life.
I want to thank our entire team for the herculean efforts associated with year-end execution and close-out. You worked diligently throughout the year and into the late hours of the night over the last few weeks, wrapping up FY12 and getting FY13 off to a good start. I’m very proud of you – well done!
Essayons! Building Strong! Army Strong!
