VSE, the prime contractor, is leading a select and respected group of DoD contractors with the right mix of technical and administrative expertise to meet all task order requirements. The team is composed of small and large businesses to offer the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) flexibility and niche expertise, as well as the resources and financial backing of a large corporation.
