The event, “How to Qualify as a Fort Rucker Subcontractor,” will be conducted in room 203 in Adams Hall from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. and will provide potential subcontractors, including all construction contractors and vendors/suppliers of construction materials, an opportunity to meet with Shaw’s procurement and construction management team.
