BAE Systems wins JIEDDO role

19th December 2011 - 15:19 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has announced that it will support the US Department of Defense (DOD) in its counter-Improvised Explosive Device (IED) work as part of a new contract worth $900 million. The company will participate in a series of bids for task orders over the next five years for a new indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity support contract for the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) programme.

JIEDDO works to counter terrorist and other organisations from using IEDs against US forces. The new contract will see BAE Systems and a team of subcontractors provide a range of services in support of JIEDDO’s efforts, including research, analysis, training, operations support and the sustainment of information technology.

According to the company, the work will be conducted at offices in Northern Virginia and at a number of military sites overseas. The contract will extend BAE Systems ongoing support to JIEDDO, as the company has provided similar types of services and expertise to the agency since 2006.
