FALLS CHURCH, Va. – (July 3, 2012) – The U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command (USASOAC) has awarded DynCorp International (DI) a task order under the Contract Field Teams (CFT) contract to provide aviation support to the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment – Airborne (SOAR-A) at Fort Campbell, Ky.
“DI has meaningful and extensive experience with this contract and we are honored to once again support the 106th SOAR-A,” said Jim Myles, group vice president, Aviation, DynCorp International. “We look forward to utilizing decades of experience with USASOAC and supporting their mission requirements.”
From its inception in the early 80s until 2010, DI provided the 160th with outstanding aviation services. The task order was awarded, briefly, to another firm, and last week, the U.S. Army notified DI that the work will return to DI.
DI team members will provide field and sustainment level maintenance on aircraft, aircraft subsystems and aviation support systems and logistics. The competitively-awarded task order, under the CFT indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (“IDIQ”) contract, has an eight month base period with two, one-year options and a total contract value of $54.5 million if all options are exercised.
More than 300 DI employees will be based at Fort Campbell for this work, where DI already supports two other contracts – aircraft maintenance and support for the 101st and base operations services for the U.S. Army Directorate of Logistics.
