  • Description
    Corpus Christi Army Depot Industry Day
    Hosted by Del Mar College’s APEX Accelerator and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

    Two 2-hour Sessions: 9 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m.
    Participants need not attend both.

    Want to conduct business with the Department of Defense (DoD)? Join representatives with the Del Mar College APEX Accelerator and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort Worth District on Thursday, April 4, for one of two sessions to learn how to do business with the DoD during Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) Industry Day. Scheduled at the College’s Oso Creek Campus on the second floor of the Culinary Arts Building, you can select either the 9 to 11 a.m. session or 1 to 3 p.m. session to learn from CCAD and Corps reps about the requirements for conducting business with the federal government and their specific contracting needs, including forecasted Depot project opportunities––both large and small. Additionally, representatives with Naval Air Station Corpus Christi’s Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) will brief attendees about current and upcoming contracting needs. Targeted trades include but are not limited to abatement (for hex chrome), asphalt/parking lot repair, concrete, electrical/mechanical, fire protection/fire suppression, HVAC/plumbing, paint booths/ventilation, post-construction cleanup and renovations. By attending in-person, business owners can network with these agencies, resource partners and other owners, so attendees are encouraged to bring plenty of business cards and updated capability statements to either the morning or afternoon session. Businesses that do not have a capabilities statement should contact the College’s APEX Accelerator Office to request assistance to acquire one before April 4. Registration is required for either session, or individuals can attend both but must register for both: 9 to 11 a.m.<> or 1 to 3 p.m.<> These sessions are also offered as a hybrid format. Call APEX Accelerator reps at 361-698-1020 or 361-698- 1035 or email<> or<> for more details. To learn more about APEX Accelerator services at Del Mar College, visit their web page at
