CJTF-HOA contracting office contributes to regional stability, prosperity with first vendor day in Mogadishu

Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa hosted a successful vendor day in Mogadishu, Somalia, July 12, 2017.  This event offered an opportunity for U.S. Army Maj. Curtis Sampson, CJTF-HOA contracting officer from Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, to meet with Somali businesses and explore the possibilities of sourcing services locally, saving time and expense in the long run.  This also promotes stability and economic growth within the CJTF-HOA area of responsibility.  Sixteen local vendors came together and received information on the workings of the U.S. contracting systems, with the aim to aid in streamlining access for Somali businesses to competitively compete for contracts.
