The first six months on DynCorp International’s (DI) Taji Multi-Platform Vehicle contract for the Iraqi Army, a lynchpin win for DynGlobal, is marked by several ahead-of-the-game accomplishments.
Through the contract, DI team members use their expertise to educate Iraqi Army maintenance personnel on proper techniques and procedures in performing vehicle maintenance and repairs at Taji, Iraq.
Some accomplishments include:
Finance. The program has submitted invoicing for $12.5 million and completed a positive program management review with the customer, U.S. Army TACOM, which resulted in a request for increased track and wheel depot operations with the potential for future contract opportunities if all the requests are approved. The team also created a list of repair parts needed for three Iraqi Army combat operation vehicle platforms, which values at more than three million dollars.
Performance. The Taji team has established site operations at ten locations and performed more than 509 joint vehicle inspections. During the mobilization phase, the team developed joint initial and final inspection check sheets for more than 19 vehicle platforms and translated the sheets to Arabic. Processes were developed for inspections, photos, storyboards and contract deliverables – the deliverables were then delivered on time or ahead of schedule.
Technology. The program established a Microsoft SharePoint site and has uploaded more than 10,000 files to date.
Safety. The Taji team established a Mosul Dam evacuation plan that allows DI to perform self-extraction when needed.
Morale. The leave schedule developed by the team allows DI personnel to take up to four weeks leave during the first year of the contract while maintaining a consistent 90 percent personnel coverage. The program held Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday celebrations as well as monthly birthday socials.
“The team has done a really great job,” said Joseph Lee, Taji program manager. “We continue to receive praise from the customer on our performance.”
