DynCorp International is ranked 10th in the 2014 Washington Technology Top 100, a list of the largest contractors in the government market according to their IT, systems integration, telecom, professional services and other high-tech revenue. Last year, DI was ranked 11.
In 2013, DI restructured into three strategic business groups: DynAviation, DynLogistics and DynGlobal. The DynAviation Group provides full-spectrum aerospace, aviation and air operations solutions worldwide, while the DynLogistics Group provides total support solutions including conventional and contingency logistics; operations and maintenance support; platform modification and upgrades; supply chain management; training, security and full spectrum intelligence mission support services. The DynGlobal Group focuses on opportunities to deliver DI’s vast array of capabilities to foreign governments and other international customers.
DI had several key contract wins in 2013, contributing to a successful year. Within the DynAviation Group, DI was awarded the Regional Aviation Sustainment Maintenance – West Region (RASM-W), under the Army Field Maintenance (AFM) contract, valued at up to $388.5 million and a Contract Field Teams (CFT) program task order to support the U.S. Navy at Solomons, Md., valued at up to $27 million. The DynAviation team also formed a strategic alliance with Sierra Nevada Corporation’s (SNC) Integrated Mission Systems (IMS) to provide aviation maintenance support, leading to a new subcontract award to provide contractor logistics support in Afghanistan under the Multi Sensor Aerial Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (MAISR) Operations and Sustainment program.
In the DynLogistics Group, key contract wins included a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract to provide logistics support for the agency’s equipment in Afghanistan and a new award to support the U.S. Army – Total Package Fielding (TPF) for the family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (MTVs).
Staying True to Core Offerings
DI chairman and CEO, Steven Gaffney, credits DI’s stability to the Company’s continued focus on core competencies.
“Stay with what works,” Gaffney said in an interview with Washington Technology. “Stick with your core offerings and do it in a different manner for different customers.”
He also commented on DI’s intentional culture which includes a tenet on helping “Create the Future,” keeping team members looking ahead in terms of business success.
“In fiscal 2013, all the things we thought could happen did happen,” he said. “In years like this, the question becomes, ‘How do you read the tea leaves early enough to get ahead of the competition?’”
“We’ve spent the last four years, building a values-based culture at DynCorp International,” Gaffney added. Those values include a focus on the future, not the moment.”
