Engility has secured a position on a $900m contract to support the US Department of Defence's (DoD) Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD).

Under the terms of indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, the company will provide chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) support to US military services.

Engility president and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo said: "This win allows us to continue an important relationship with this customer and it gives us the opportunity to provide sustainment and support to fielded CBRN systems across all of the military services.

"We have a great team and we look forward to helping JPEO-CBD achieve mission success."

"This win gives us the opportunity to provide sustainment and support to fielded CBRN systems across all of the military services."

The contract has been awarded under the Joint Enterprise-Contracted Logistics and Services Support (JE-CLaSS) vehicle.

It covers the provision of logistics, supply chain management, and maintenance support services for JPEO-CBD for a period of three years, and features an additional one-year option.

Engility has been supporting JPEO-CBD for more than ten years.

The company is currently developing its JE-CLaSS offerings, such as its contractor logistics support (CLS) services for individual and collective protection from chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosives (CBRNE) threats.

In November, Engility secured a $49m contract from US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) to supply specialised solutions and lifecycle support for advanced communications systems.

The three-year contract forms part of the deployable communications capabilities system (DCCS) project.

Engility will provide USNORTHCOM with support services, including capability design, solutions development, engineering, system modifications, technical refreshers, training and repairs.
