KS International LLC has won a $623.3 million contract with the Air Force to support Balad Air Base, Iraq.

Under the contract, KS International LLC will provide base operating support, base life support and security services.
Work will be performed at Balad Air Base, Iraq, and is expected to be completed by January 2017.
