DynCorp (Aust.) Pty Limited, a wholly owned DynCorp International subsidiary also known as Dyn-Australia, has recently signed a contract with the Commonwealth of Australia’s Department of Defence to provide project delivery services throughout Australia.
“Dyn-Australia has proven its commitment to the Australian Defence Force through successful logistics and aviation programs in Afghanistan for more than nine years,” said Clifford Cagle, DynCorp International senior vice president, DynGlobal. “We are excited to expand our business in Australia with the Defence Support and Reform Group, as well as the Asia Pacific region through government and commercial enterprises.”
In the first strategic win for the DynGlobal Group, DI will be providing national project delivery and management services for individual facility projects across all Australian Defence bases through this contract.
“It is important to note that DynCorp International was the only non-incumbent to receive a competitive award for this procurement,” said Chris Bernhardt, DynCorp International president.
The contract has a six year base period with two, two-year options and a maximum potential value of up to $100 million if all options are exercised.
Dyn-Australia Helicopter Support
The Dyn-Australia team currently provides Mi-26 helicopter support for the Australian Defence Force, a program it has held since 2011. Through this program, Dyn-Australia team members provide aviation logistics support for the Australian Defence Force’s Mi-26 aircraft in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Services include managing ground and air-operations support for the heavy-lift helicopters.
The Mi-26 helicopters help transport cargo containers and recover unserviceable or damaged aircraft. Through this program, the Australian forces are able to move necessary equipment safely and more quickly than if by land.
