The US Army has awarded a contract position to defence and government services contractor Pacific Architects and Engineers (PAE) to compete on task orders worth up to $2.4bn.
Under the indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity Enterprise Training Services contract (ETSC), the company will be responsible for providing the army with training and assistance, as well as exercise planning, management, and support.
As one of the three large business awardees for the contract, PAE will also be responsible for delivering training systems, and range operations and maintenance.
The five-year ETSC has been awarded by the US Army Contracting Command Orlando in collaboration with the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.
PAE chief executive officer John Heller said: “PAE has an impressive background of providing holistic training programmes in 48 countries over the last 12 years.
“This training has successfully enhanced partner nation capacity, bolstered US foreign relations and protected the US national security objectives. We look forward to continuing that support with ETSC.”
Work under the contract requires quick response training for allied forces, in addition to operational training for specific US Army units in a wide range of environments.
Heller added: “We’re going to train the customer wherever they want us to train them on whatever needs they have for training.
“Our agility combined with our quality knowledge-based training solutions make PAE the perfect partner to help the US Army perform their mission.”
Operating for more than 60 years, PAE helps carry out a series of complex and critical missions by providing global logistics and stability operations, technical services and national security solutions to customers across the globe.
