Beacon is pleased to announce that the Fort Detrick Business Development Office (FDBDO) has named Pat Evans as their new Manager. The FDBDO will realize significant value from Ms. Evans’ longstanding relationships at Fort Detrick, the Fort Detrick Contracting Community, and her extensive contracting knowledge with the USA Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA).
Providing information and training, the FDBDO serves as a resource and organization, educating small and large businesses on how to do business with Fort Detrick. This office is a vital component of the community as it provides Fort Detrick with increased competition and helps promote USA Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) and Fort Detrick as Maryland’s premier biomedical research technology growth center. Ms. Evans will be responsible for promoting the FDBDO and ensuring it maintains the central portal for the continuous flow of information between USAMRMC, Fort Detrick, and the business community.
Ms. Evans’ more than 25 years of experience in acquisition for the Defense community will bring tremendous value through new relationships, ideas, and a fresh perspective to the office. She has wide-ranging associations in the Fort Detrick community, which stems from her years as Chief of the Customer Service Center (CSC) and Operations Service Center (OSC) for the USAMRAA.
“She [Ms. Evans] will bring substantial real-world experience to the “How to do Business with Fort Detrick” training workshops. I am enthusiastic about the knowledge and understanding she will bring to the business development office based on her contracting history with USAMRAA,” stated Susan Phin, Program Manager for Beacon. “I know she will be extremely successful in not only helping businesses navigate the complex government procurement process, but she is committed to promoting USAMRMC and Fort Detrick as Maryland’s business and technology growth center.”
