Garrison, Community Leaders gather at Fort Campbell to discuss partnerships

 

Written by Maria McClure 
Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – U.S. Army Garrison-Fort Campbell recently hosted its first intergovernmental support agreement conference here with local mayors, officials and service representatives from cities and counties surrounding the installation. The two-day event was designed to identify opportunities to partner in the acquisition of mutually beneficial support service resources.

The use of IGSAs is considered one of the most cost effective ways for Installation Management Command to acquire goods and services, said Lt. Gen. Bradley A. Becker, IMCOM commanding general in a February 4th, 2019 video recording addressing the importance of implementing IGSAs. IMCOM spends millions of dollars annually on contracts, and IGSAs can significantly reduce this cost.

“More than anything, I want you to view partnering as a readiness imperative,” Becker said in his video. “The relationships we cultivate, develop and strengthen now will make us stronger and more resilient in the years ahead.”
