The second award AMI received is to provide operation and maintenance services including all management, supervision, labor, materials, equipment and supplies at two federal buildings in downtown Los Angeles, California. This contract is valued at $3,000,000 over two years.

The third award granted to AMI is to provide heating, ventilation and air conditioning, pest control, ground maintenance, janitorial, facility maintenance, and other service requested for two Defense Logistic Agency (DLA) locations in San Diego, California.

The fourth contract awarded to AMI is to repair/replace automated swimming pool covers for training pools at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California. This contract is valued at $1,800,000.00.

With 300 Guam-based employees, 155 mainland-based employees, and more than 20 years experience, AMI has a long history of excellent past performance on service contracts for the Navy, Air Force, Government of Guam and in the private sector. The company currently performs Guam based custodial services island wide for Naval Facilities Engineering Command Marianas and the Department of Defense Education Activity schools, making the company the largest local supplier of janitorial, housekeeping and custodial services to the U.S. military on Guam.

AMI awarded custodial contract in Norfolk, Virginia, area

Advance Management, Inc., recently received notification from the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Mid-Atlantic of a $15,000,000.00 three year, contract award for custodial services in and around the Norfolk, Virginia, area which includes Norfolk Naval Shipyard, Oceana, Yorktown, and various other naval locations.

"We are excited about this and other new opportunities in the mainland," says Monty McDowell, chief executive officer and principal broker of Advance Management, Inc. "We believe we can apply what we have learned on Guam during the past 20 years to new markets."

AMI won the contract as part of a joint venture with ACEPEX Management Corporation, a defense contractor based in Mountclair, California. The joint venture, AMI-ACEPEX JV, is currently bidding on several other military contracts in the mainland.

This Small Business Administration approved Joint Venture is an adjunct of AMI's Mentor-Protege relationship formed through the guidance, and ultimate approval of the SBA, reflecting the agency's solid commitment to Guam businesses.

"Michael Youth, our SBA business development specialist, and the whole SBA team in Hawaii, worked tirelessly to guide AMI through the process, which made this all possible," says Jim McFerran, director of business development of Advance Management, Inc. "The Mentor Protege relationship will provide AMI access to a number of sophisticated resources such as safety compliance programs and excellent work performance monitoring systems."

This is the second mainland defense contract awarded to AMI in as many weeks.

AMI was recently awarded a Multiple Award Service Contract (MASC) at Navy facilities throughout locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.

The MASC contract covers a variety of service requirements which can include services such as window replacement, painting, pest management, material supply, electrical & plumbing needs, and most other service requirements, all served through Task Orders for the required work at the specified locations, for both large and small facilities throughout the western United States. The contract covers three years and up to $100 million. AMI was one of three services contractors awarded the contract. The three companies will bid on each new service contract as needed by each military facility. Contract awards generally end up being fairly evenly spread, and thus it could mean some $33 million in contracts to AMI over 3 years.

With 300 employees on Guam and 20 years experience, AMI has a long history of excellent past performance on service contracts for the Navy and in the private sector. The company currently performs the custodial services for island wide Naval Facilities and the Department of Defense Education Activity schools, making the company the largest local supplier of janitorial, housekeeping and custodial services to the U.S. military on Guam. With the majority of the Government of Guam's Department of Education's schools, Guam's four leased public schools and DoDEA schools, AMI has shown the same commitment and competence for school systems as it does for medical facilities such as the Naval Hospital Guam and TakeCare Clinic.

AMI awarded service contract in mainland

Advance Management, Inc., was recently awarded a Multiple Award Service Contract (MASC) at Navy facilities throughout locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.

The contract will cover a variety of service requirements which can include services such as window replacement, painting, pest management, material supply, electrical & plumbing needs, and most other service requirements, all served through Task Orders for the required work at the specified locations, for both large and small facilities throughout the western United States.

The contract covers three years and up to $100 million. AMI was one of three services contractors awarded the contract. The three companies will bid on each new service contract as needed by each military facility. Contract awards generally end up being fairly evenly spread, and thus it could mean some $33 million in contracts to AMI over 3 years.

AMI has a long history of excellent past performance on Guam performing service contracts for the Navy and in the private sector. The company currently performs the custodial services for Island wide Naval Facilities and the Department of Defense Education Activity schools, making the company the largest local supplier of janitorial, housekeeping and custodial services to the U.S. military on Guam. With the majority of the Government of Guam's Department of Education's schools, Guam's four leased public schools and DoDEA schools, AMI has shown the same commitment and competence for school systems as it does for medical facilities such as the Naval Hospital Guam and TakeCare Clinic.
