Marc Pacino Bio
Marc Pacino started his federal career back in 1972 after serving two tours in Vietnam with Americal Division's 198th Lt Infantry Brigade-Chu-Lai, South Vietnam. While Overseas Mr. Pacino was recruited by the US Army Engineering & Construction CE, US Army support Thailand USURSUPTHAI (United States Army Support, Thailand), Construction-Civil Division.
Assigned to: 809th Engineer Battalion & Civil Engineering Group/234th Engineering Battalion
Position: Asst. Chief of Contracting/Civil Construction Civil-Construction, Base Operations Contracting Division. His position started as contracting specialist leading to a full senior contracting officer position(s).
Upon completion of overseas duty Mr. Pacino, with the assistance of the VietNow Minority Task Force in CA attained funding to develop EnviroVision Environmental Services, Inc. and Madrid Engineering, Inc. Within one year Mr. Pacino developed its sister company Aztec Environmental Remediation, Inc. which was an “Emergency Spill Response” municipal, and hazardous waste remediation firm focusing on federal, state, and municipal service contracts.
After performing services in the Midwest (Chicago), NY, and the SE regions of the US, Mr. Pacino decided to focus entirely in the federal contracting arena. This was brought about by the SBA Small Business Programs, and the DOD Mentor-Protégé system, as well as the Department of Defense’s federal contracting division taking an extremely strong interest in Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). In 2005 many of the federal military agencies such as Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC-NAVFACENGCOM), USACE (US Army Corps of Engineers), USAF, AFCEE, and many of the federal contracting agencies have started to focus on new Base Realignment and Closure Programs (BRAC) which specifically utilizes minority set aside contractors, and specifically Service Disabled Veterans to fulfill their Affirmative Action percentage quotas. The SDV contractor stands at the very top of the selection board due to the extensive lobbying that the Dept. of VA has performed over the past three years.
