The 90th Contracting Squadron serves the base by assisting personnel to meet their requirements and achieve their specific mission.


 “Our mission is to obtain the best value for goods or services for base personnel with the mentality of being a steward for the taxpayer,” said Melissa Battiste, team lead specialist contracting office. “We strive for customer satisfaction in terms of cost, quality and timeliness.”


The 90th Contracting Squadron has three flights to support base personnel: infrastructure support flight, acquisition support flight and plans and programs flight.


“Contracting  provides the flexibility that is essential for missions to succeed,” said Senior Airman Byron Standbridge, contracting administrator contracting office. “Each flight deals with different things, some more specialized than others.”


The infrastructure support flight assists the 90th Civil Engineering Squadron with base construction, missile alert facility construction and other base-wide services.


“90th CONS is the final step in the process of supporting mission-related construction and support,” said Rodney Trees, 90th CES chief of engineering. “CONS helps with the procurement of contract support that is above and beyond the in-house capabilities of CE shops.” 


The plans and programs flight supports the Government Procurement Card program that helps all squadrons purchase 'micro-purchase' items and services as well as quality assurance programs.


“CONS is instrumental in helping us obligate our funds not only in the GPC realm, but also in the awarding of contracts,” said Maj. Andrew Wilkins, 90th Comptroller Squadron commander.


The acquisition support flight  is responsible for complex base service contracts and commodities to include: food services, preventative maintenance agreements, hospital support staff, vehicle leases and supply-type items that cannot be acquired through the GPC program.
