Longevity Consulting and Jackson State University Team Up To Promote Innovation and Excellence at HBCUs

Washington, DC – May 10, 2018 – Longevity Consulting and Jackson State University (JSU) have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to increase the capacity of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to effectively compete for federal acquisitions such as grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements.

The collaboration between Longevity and JSU will identify federal programs and initiatives where HBCUs may be either underserved or underutilized as national resources. The partnership will also encourage public sector, the private sector, and community involvement aimed at encouraging HBCUs to participate in federal programs, as well as become more involved in research and commercialization activities.

The Path to Excellence and Innovation Project is a comprehensive plan to expand the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Small Business Program to provide technical assistance and training for HBCUs. The program will support HBCUs and prepare them to compete and receive more Federal acquisition funding that will diversify the revenues for the universities and create more business and research opportunities. Currently, there are seven pilot schools, and each school has chosen one or more Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) teaming partners to support their efforts in this pilot program.

“With Longevity’s extensive experience in the federal and commercial arenas combined with JSU’s mission of performing research and developmental activities in various technical disciplines are a great match to meet a variety of needs as outlined in the Path to Excellence Innovation Project; especially HBCUs where they continue to improve the educational outcomes for not only African American students, but students from a variety of diverse backgrounds” said chief executive officer, Bobby Long.

The NIH is the largest biomedical research organization in the world with 27 institutes and centers with an estimated annual contracting budget of $4.5-5B. The Emerging Technology Consortium (ETC) a 501 (c) 4 organization presented a concept for HBCU Teams to the Director of the Office of Logistics and Acquisition Management (OALM) as a possible solution to improve the numbers of awards going to HBCUs. As a result, OALM wanted to create an Acquisition Assistance Gateway (AAG) to manage training and technical assistance for these colleges and universities. The AAG would provide support to the HBCUs on how to compete and win contracts that would assist in diversifying revenue and create more business/research opportunities at the HBCUs.
