DynCorp International has been awarded a modification under a previously awarded Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific (NAVFAC Pacific) contract to provide operations support services within the Republic of the Philippines.
“We are proud to be able to continue serving NAVFAC Pacific on this program,” said Ronnie Stokes, DynCorp International senior program director.
Work performed under this contract includes all labor, supervision, management, tools, materials, equipment, facilities, transportation, incidental engineering, and other necessary support services. DI has supported this program since 2008.
This is the second of four, one-year options to be exercised; it has a value of $37.9 million. The base year was awarded in June 2012.
A Focus on Safety
One key element in this program’s success is the DI team’s commitment to safety. In April 2014, the more than 600 team members on the POS program celebrated working more than ten million hours without a single Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable event. On a daily basis, team members apply behavioral safety principles to their duties in air, land, and sea logistics, transport, camp operations, food service, billeting, potable water, field sanitation, utilities, hazardous material collection and disposal, MWR, property security, and vector control. Top safety performers are also recognized on a quarterly basis.
POS Program Demonstrates Core Value, “We Care”
Supporting the local community is also a priority for the team members of the POS program. Last year, DI team members provided assistance to residents in Mindanao, after Typhoon Pablo left thousands homeless and in need. Dubbed “Operation Pablo,” the POS team worked together to collect and deliver donations of food, clothing, blankets and other essentials.
