ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam  -- This week, the 36th Mission Support Group highlights the 36th Contracting Squadron's Logistics Contracting Acquisitions Non-Commercial Flight.

The 36th Contracting Squadron's mission is to provide swift, responsive contract support for Team Andersen.

This flight supports construction efforts on Andersen with contracted projects for the sustainment, repair and renovation of industrial facilities and infrastructure on base.

"Airmen of the non-commercial acquisition flight bring an unmatched dedication to duty and a work ethic that won't stop," said Master Sgt. Reketta Montgomery, 36th CONS superintendent. "Though our team is comprised of many junior contracting professionals, most with less than three years of experience, the quality of work performed is truly impressive."

Projects range from larger efforts such as runway repairs, housing renovations, roofing projects, utility upgrades, office renovations, and improvements to smaller efforts such as jogging trails and sports fields for the Department of Defense Education Activity schools.

A recent project is the renovation of Andersen's Visiting Officers Quarters. This building is undergoing restoration and modernization efforts, ensuring the building is up to codes and standards for structural, electrical, heating ventilation and air-conditioning system requirements while also making it compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

"The renovation project will improve the quality of life to military and transient personnel visiting Andersen AFB," Montgomery said. "This energy-saving project includes an upgrade to the building's utilities, thus reducing the current energy and water consumption, as well as decreasing the overall carbon footprint of the facility. We are proud to say the 36th Contracting Squadron is a part of this improvement on Andersen."

36th CONS, comprised of seven service members and five civilians, maintains lasting business relationships with customers by meeting and exceeding expectations and gaining support and trust through exceptional performance and professionalism by every member of the flight.

"The team aims to satisfy customers while serving as a steward of the U.S. taxpayers' dollars," Montgomery said. "They do this by continuous learning, setting goals, meeting objectives and being accountable to themselves and their team members."
