KBR to continue US Army support
KBR has been awarded a one-year $45 million contract modification by the US Army Contracting Command to continue to provide maintenance, supply, transportation and other logistics functions for the US Army Prepositioned Stock-3 (APS-3) Charleston Afloat programme.
The contract extends work on the original contract until August 2020.
KBR will provide Care of Supplies in Storage (COSIS) and integrated logistics support, including inventory management and control, serialisation, storage, tactical vehicle maintenance, marking and labelling, and distribution at US Army Field Support Battalion-Charleston in Goose Creek, South Carolina.
KBR will also receive, inventory and package various supply class stocks for storage; and perform maintenance on army equipment that is prepositioned ashore, and COSIS on ships afloat in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
Byron Bright, KBR president, government services US, said: ‘This contract extension speaks to KBR's performance and responsiveness supporting the APS-3 programme. As a leading US Army readiness provider, we continue to provide prepositioned stock services and ensure the availability of combat-ready equipment to our forces around the world in support of their mission.’
