The new task order has a value of $317.4 million over a performance period of 18 months.

Under the task order, DynCorp International will provide at least 580 civilian police advisors to advise, train, and mentor the Afghanistan National Police and the Ministry of Interior. These police advisors will assist the U.S. State Department and the Combined Security Transition Command - Afghanistan to meet the U.S. goals of increasing Afghanistan's overall capability to provide police presence, improve public security, and support the rule of law.
