I finally won some work

Well I finally picked up some decent work. I was notified today by two clients that we would be receiving a subcontract soon and to get started with our submittal package. These two projects, along with the project I won down on Ascension Island, are worth an aggregate of 772,000 dollars, and all of thewm were bid to 8-A firms who get to negotiate their work with the government in set-aside packages. This means that our margins could be significantly higher than we would be able to have if they were bid as straight up full and open competition. I'm not sure yet if we'll squeek this one out or not, but it's looking a damn sight bettger than it was just a few weeks ago.

If my two compatriots here in my office can pull out another three quarters of a million, we'll be good for another eight months or so, buying time to market and seek out other backlog.

ASCENSION ISLAND???

ancona, pay someone $60k to go there. Very far... On the other hand, your fans would like hearing about that place!

Congratulations!

It sounds like a lot of cash- but not really. Still it is better then nothing.

DoChen,
I lived there several times and had a wonderful experience.

Ascension Island fucking ROCKS!The island is a british posession, but we have a military base there as does England and the French has a monitoring station fot their Arianne rockets tehy launch from French Guyana. There is simply too much to tell in a single post.

Glad you got some more contracts. $772,000 gross is not all that much, but it will keep the wolves away a bit longer. As long as you keep plugging along and don't give up, you should be ok for the forseeable future.
