FALLS CHURCH, Va. (July 8, 2009) - The
Department of the Army has awarded DynCorp International (NYSE:DCP)
and its two partners, CH2M Hill and Taos Industries (a subsidiary
of Agility Defense & Government Services), a task order for
logistics support for the Afghanistan-South Area of Responsibility
(AOR) under its existing LOGCAP IV contract. The task order value
is $643.5 million for the one-year base period. The task order has
a base year plus four one year options with a total evaluated value
of $5.874 billion. The Army has directed DynCorp International to
begin task order performance immediately.
Under this new task order, DynCorp International will provide existing bases within the Afghanistan South AOR with operations and maintenance support, including but not limited to: facilities management, electrical power, water, sewage and waste management, laundry operations, food services and transportation motor pool operations. DynCorp International will also provide various construction services for additional sites.
"It is a tremendous honor for the DynCorp International Team to provide logistics support in Afghanistan for the men and women of the U.S. Army," said DynCorp International President and CEO William L. Ballhaus. "I cannot think of a more important contribution we can offer for our nation's security, or a better example of serving today for a safe tomorrow. Through our relentless focus on performance, compliance, ethics and accountability, the DynCorp International Team provides the best value for the U.S. Army and for the taxpayer."
Under the LOGCAP IV contract, the DynCorp International Team is one of three providers who will support U.S. forces worldwide, and is currently providing logistics support in Kuwait under two separate task orders. DynCorp International holds several important logistics and contingency contracts for the U.S. military, and was the sole holder of the LOGCAP II contract from 1997-2002.
