Serco awarded US Army base closure contract

20th June 2012 - 14:44 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Serco has announced that it has been awarded a contract to support the United States Forces Afghanistan (USFOR-A) base closure and transition initiative through the coordination of logistics and deconstruction of bases throughout Afghanistan.

The new three-year contract, announced on 19 June, has a one-year base period and two one-year options with a value of $57 million, if all options are exercised.

The contract will see Serco provide Base Closure Assistance Teams (BCAT) to manage multiple concurrent base closure tasks. BCATs are responsible for organising, coordinating and assisting military units with the key aspects of redeployment associated with base closures and transfers.

Serco has provided similar services to the United States Forces Iraq BCATs. The company assisted military and base commanders in the closure and return of US coalition bases to the Government of Iraq and to local landowners. Serco also contributed to the army’s current Base Closure Smartbook, as well as the base closure lessons learned documents.
