US Army moves on EAGLE programme

26th October 2012 - 16:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army has kicked off the first round of its Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise (EAGLE) programme, selecting a number of companies to bid for task orders for the $23.5 billion indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract.

Among the companies named are Northrop Grumman, DynCorp International (DI), BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin. Thirty-three companies were named in total.

The EAGLE programme, being managed by the US Army Materiel Command, will provide multi-faceted supply, maintenance and transportation support to assist in preparing forces for deployment, sustainment and redeployment.

According to Northrop Grumman, EAGLE is a new contract vehicle that is expected to replace present ID/IQ vehicles. The US Army will use EAGLE to assign sustainment services to include the maintenance and reset of equipment, supply chain management and vehicle sustainment and logistics operations.

Kenneth Juergens, group vice president, Global Logistics and Development Solutions, DynCorp International, said: ‘It is an honour to have been selected for this programme and to have the opportunity to continue supporting the US Army and the important logistics work ahead’.
