KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded a contract to provide mission-critical labor at three locations in the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) area of operations. The cost-plus contract, through the Air Force Contract Augmentation Program (AFCAP V), is worth up to $69M and has a base period of two years with an eight-month option.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide support personnel at Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait; Prince Sultan Air Base, Saudi Arabia; and Al Dhafra Air Base, UAE, over the next two and a half years. KBR personnel will accompany and guide local and other country nationals at U.S. military facilities throughout these three bases. This contract in the CENTCOM area of operations expands KBR’s portfolio in the region, where the company already performs base operations support in Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia.
“Our KBR team has decades of experience within CENTCOM,” said Byron Bright, KBR Government Solutions U.S. President. “Our KBR staff will augment the uniformed military personnel in the region, which can reduce deployment cycles and allow our customer to place military personnel on other critical missions. This is yet another example of KBR operating as The Team Behind the Mission℠ and we’re proud to continue our U.S. military support.”
