As such, the operating contractor will be required to market idle and underutilized facilities at LCAAP for commercial use by private sector firms. The operating contractor must comply with all Federal, State, and Local laws and Army regulations and policies, as well as maintain critical skills and core capabilities for products produced at the plant.
