ITT to pull force protection duty in Kosovo

U.S. troops helping to preserve the peace in Kosovo will get help on the ground from ITT Corp. through a contract established by U.S. Army Europe.

Employees of the White Plains, N.Y., contractor will help protect members of Task Force Falcon stationed at Camp Bondsteel in southeast Kosovo and the overall security of the installation. The contract could be worth as much as $39 million over a three-year period.

Under the contract, ITT will provide services that include physical and electronic security, quality assurance and supply management, company officials said in an announcement. The force protection assistance will enable warfighters involved in Task Force Falcon to focus on mission-critical tasks, they said.

Task Force Falcon is the U.S. component of NATO's Kosovo Force. The U.S. troops assist with peacekeeping operations, humanitarian assistance and related aid so that Kosovo's civilian government can firmly establish itself. ITT has provided support at the facility since 2003.

ITT, a provider of high-technology engineering and manufacturing services, ranks No. 14 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
