BEAVERCREEK -- A Beavercreek-based defense contractor has landed a more than $18 million contract to provide consulting expertise in acquisition intelligence and information technology, among other areas, to the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The five-year contract will bring stability to the Sawdey Solution Services, Inc., and add about 20 jobs, including nine contractor positions at Wright-Patterson, said Connie Sawdey, company president.

Sawdey Solution has won 13 contracts under One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS), more than any other small business firm, the former Army officer said.

Under the latest deal, the defense contractor will provide administrative and training support to high level staff at the AFLCMC, also, said Beth Czanik, Sawdey Solution Services executive director of operations.

Most of the firm's contracts have been with the Air Force, but the federal contractor is waiting to hear the outcome on bids with other agencies, including the Army and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said Jeff Sawdey, company vice president.

"We have proposals outstanding with several other federal agencies," he said. "We just haven't heard back from them yet."

The company has 190 employees, with about 60 in Beavercreek. Many of the rest work on military bases across the country.
