The U.S. Dept. of State’s Overseas Buildings Operations is implementing a new policy to attract a larger pool of contractors from disabled service veterans, minority contractors and HubZone contractors.

This will enable MEP contractors to be mentored on a one-time basis to obtain a facility clearance, OBO says.
