"Civilian Workforce"

I’m Brigadier General Joe Bass. I’ve got about 28 years in the United States Army, the last 20 in contracting.

The ECC is a subordinate command of the Army Contracting Command, the ACC. We’re, we’re literally uh, in all over the world. Korea, Hawaii, Alaska, Germany, uh parts of Southwest Asia. The civilian contracting personnel are really are integral to everything we do. We really rely on the civilian workforce to be our experience and our, our, our continuity as the military rotate around different places.

As the requirements become more complex, or in a sustainment mode for more, you know multiple years or those kinds of contracts, we would bring in the civilian workforce to do those kind of more complex actions. The challenge is incredible. You will do things there in a month that would, you wouldn’t have seen in a year back here in the states.

If you were wanting to be a supervisor and didn’t have the opportunity at, at your current location, there are a lot of opportunities to do that. The Army is a great place to work whether you’re in uniform or out of uniform.
