philippines contract dyncorp intlDynCorp International today announced that it has been awarded a modification under a previously awarded Naval Facilities Engineering Command-Pacific contract to provide operations support services within the Republic of the Philippines.

“We have celebrated significant growth in this program and are honored to be able to continue working with the U.S. military in the Philippines,” said George Krivo, senior vice president, DynLogistics.

Work performed under this contract includes all labor, supervision, management, tools, materials, equipment, facilities, transportation, incidental engineering, and other necessary support services.

This is the first of four, one-year options to be exercised; it has a value of $44.9 million, for a total cumulative contract value of $223.5 million. The base year was awarded in June 2012.

DI has supported the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command-Pacific on this program since 2008 and previous to that contract award was the managing partner to Contingency Response Services LLC who was the incumbent prior to 2008.

Making Safety a Priority

The DI team in the Philippines attributes their success to many factors, one of which is their commitment to safety. Recently the team celebrated a milestone – ten million hours worked incident-free. Their top-notch safety program empowers team members to achieve their goals by educating and energizing them on the importance of safety procedures.

For example, last year the team developed a “Safety Festival” where employees put together a series of short classes within their specialties, and small groups would rotate through each station for 15 minute hands-on educational safety sessions. Station topics, among many, included seasonal protection, fire-related safety and vector-borne diseases.

“Small initiatives like the Safety Festival are a positive way to elevate safety awareness within the team, an ongoing attitude carried by the efforts of the dedicated employees on this program,” said Robert Katz, DynCorp International project manager.

A Team Dedicated to Core Values

“When I began working on this program I immediately found a sense of loyalty and purpose among the entire team. We have a sizable Filipino local national workforce, and as we grew to know each other, it was clear that they understood and respected the Government’s mission that we support, and were totally dedicated to doing the right thing – a major element of our company’s core values,” said Katz.

“Time and again, our team has risen to the cause, and embraced their job performance with a sincere attention to caring in order to meet commitments.  This mission is fluid; schedules change and requirements follow – if not for the willingness and professionalism of our staff, we would not be able to serve the customer the way we do.”

    For more than a year I have read by DynCorp projection of new contract in Philippines. I hope that both DynCorp and those working to develop and maintain a long and successful contract will have the opportunity. I notices those write here appear not to receive and response. I hope those that created this site will respond. 10 years working in the desert. It would be good to continue working for DynCorp in a new place. All of you that seek employment or continued employment with DI along with Moreland and myself can meet one day or at the least maintain our DynCorp in Philippines. Take care and remain safe and blessed in America and away.
