City Partners with NAS-Corpus Christi for Infrastructure Maintenance

Will Save Significant Procurement Costs for the Local Installation

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – At today’s regularly scheduled City Council meeting, Mayor Paulette Guajardo and the City Council approved an Intergovernmental Support Agreement (IGSA) with Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi (NASCC) to facilitate efficiencies and cost savings in the maintenance of fencing, elevators, roofing, and utility systems on base. 

IGSAs allow a military installation to utilize a local government partner to provide organic in-house service or service through locally procured contracts for designated infrastructure needs.

NASCC estimates the annual work conducted under this IGSA will be $3 million. The military reimburses the local government directly for the total cost of services.  Additionally, the City is provided with a 10% administrative fee to administer and manage the projects conducted under the IGSA. 

NASCC has estimated significant savings using City-procured contracts instead of federally procured contracts based on the federal government's analysis of existing IGSAs.

The IGSA agreement strengthens the partnership between the City of Corpus Christi and Naval Air Station Corpus Christi while realizing cost savings and efficiencies for our local military missions.   

"The IGSA agreement marks a significant milestone in solidifying the bond between the City of Corpus Christi and Naval Air Station Corpus Christi,” Mayor Guajardo said. “Through this partnership, we not only enhance our support for local military missions, but also achieve cost savings and operational efficiencies, bolstering our economy and job market for a stronger, more resilient future."

“The City’s ongoing partnership with NAS-Corpus Christi is a valuable asset that benefits the community and extends our commitment to support their mission of providing military pilot training,” City Manager Peter Zanoni said.
