Tamsco unit wins Iraq work

A unit of Engineered Support Systems Inc. won a contract potentially worth $279 million from the U.S. Army to provide a Command and Control Information Technology Infrastructure for the Multi-National Forces in Iraq, company officials said.

The Multi-National Forces effort is a follow-on to a $52 million contract that Technical and Management Services Corp. in early 2004 won from the Army to support communications needs of the Coalition Provisional Authority, the former governing body of Iraq. Tamsco is a subsidiary of ESSI and is based in Calverton, Md. ESSI is based in St. Louis.

The time-and-materials contract provides an initial funding level of $12.2 million, with a ceiling of $279 million over the three-year performance period. Work on the contract will be performed by a team led by Tamsco and supported by a number of subcontractors.

"Under this effort, the Tamsco team provides program management, architectural design and engineering, installation, operation and maintenance, network management and systems administration support," said Gerald Potthoff, ESSI's vice chairman and CEO.
