All Native Group, a government services division of Ho-Chunk Inc. in Winnebago, Neb., has been awarded $17 million in federal government contracts, spokeswoman Janice Jessen said Thursday.

The three contracts will focus on providing information technology and communications support for various federal entities, allowing expansion of All Native Group’s full-time workforce in the coming years, a company press release said.

Jessen said the number of jobs that will be added is not yet known.

All Native Group is a division of Ho-Chunk Inc., an economic development corporation owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. The company employs more than 1,000 people and operates 34 subsidiaries across the United States and in seven foreign countries.

The division is a partner in a four-year contract with the Space Innovation and Development Center, a military unit under the Air Force Space Command located at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, Colo. It will provide technical support for national publications involved with the center, as well as executive correspondence and procedures involving space protection.

The company was also awarded a contract to provide IT support for the Fort Detrick Network Enterprise Center in Maryland.

Through 2017, the company will assist the Department of State Media Outreach in educating firms about business opportunities in Iraq. It will involve program development and logistical support for a series of conferences, seminars and workshops on potential ventures related to infrastructure development, oil, gas, electricity, health, transportation, telecommunications and finance in Iraq.

All Native Group also will track the program’s success and provide information technology and administrative support to develop a website.
