Issued under the Air Force Contract Augmentation Program, the award covers services at Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait, Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia and Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates, KBR announced from its Houston, Texas headquarters on Thursday.
“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,” explained Byron Bright, president of KBR Government Solutions U.S. and a four-time Wash100 Award recipient.
He said that the award is “yet another example of KBR operating as The Team Behind the Mission,” and that the company is proud to continue working with the U.S. military and expand on its decades of experience with CENTCOM.
The contract has a base period of two years and includes an eight-month option. Throughout the period of performance, KBR personnel will accompany and guide local and foreign nationals at U.S. military installations within the three bases. The company has already established a portfolio in the region that includes base operations assistance work in Bahrain, UAE and Saudi Arabia.
KBR processes hundreds of individuals each year and has scaled its deployment processing center for surge support. Within the past two decades, KBR has processed over 88,000 people for 150 contracts and task orders across 70 locations worldwide.
Recently, KBR received a task order also focused on international base operations support. Under the $24 million contract awarded by the 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, KBR is currently delivering infrastructure-related services at the Kyogamisaki and Shariki communication sites in Japan.
