AECOM has secured a $520m task order to provide services related to maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification and upgrade of military vehicles and other equipment at various US Army locations.

The company secured the order under the TACOM Strategic Services Solutions contract. It will offer the services at Red River Army Depot, Anniston Army Depot, Sierra Army Depot and Rock Island Arsenal.

AECOM’s task order comprises a base year and two one-year options.

AECOM management services group president John Vollmer said: “We are proud to continue supporting the US Army and providing these essential services on critical platforms to multiple depot installations across the country.

“Our team continues to bring extensive experience and capability focused to ensure critical equipment is at its highest level of readiness to support the army’s mission.”

Under the contract, the company will be responsible for offering a range of services at each depot to continue the organic industrial base initiatives and priorities of the US Army.

AECOM mission readiness business unit senior vice-president and general manager Dr Karl Spinnenweber said: “This significant programme of work is another milestone in our efforts to provide maintenance services key to our US Army customer.”

Last October, the company announced that it signed a definitive agreement to sell its management services (MS) business to affiliates of American Securities and Lindsay Goldberg in a deal valued at $2.405bn.

The transaction is expected to conclude in the first half of this year.

In January 2018, AECOM secured a $442m contract to deliver rotary wing flight training instructor support services to the US Army at Fort Rucker in Alabama.
