The US Army Sustainment Command (ASC) and its subordinate commands are set to receive global acquisition and logistics operations support from professional, technology and management services provider Serco.
Awarded under the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contract vehicle, the current order will have an estimated total value of $43m, if all options are exercised.
The three-year award involves a base period of one year and two one-year option periods.
Through the contract, Serco’s support will cover areas such as operational and programme planning, acquisition and contracting, training and exercise, and global logistics management.
In addition, the company will be committed in deploying a number of employees to the different US Army locations across the globe in support of the ASC contingency planning and operations with an aim to provide direct onsite support to the command.
Serco chairman and chief executive officer Dave Dacquino said: “Serco is proud of the service that our nation’s military performs at locations around the world.
“Under this programme, we will continue to support our nation’s critical logistics operations to ensure mission readiness and success.”
Work on the project will be carried out at Rock Island Arsenal, in addition to other Continental US (CONUS) and Outside Continental US (OCONUS) locations.
The company intends to employ approximately 80 personnel to support the global acquisition and logistics operations support programme.
