KBR’s government services business has won a potential eight-year, $949.4 million contract for equipment maintenance and logistics support services to the Marine Corps.
One other proposal was submitted for the Marine Corps Prepositioning Program that works to ensure deployed personnel have the assets they need, the Defense Department said in its Friday awards digest.
Honeywell Technology Solutions Inc. business first won the work in 2009. HTSI was acquired in 2016 by KBR as part of the latter’s strategy to build a government services business very different than from what it was before.
MCPP is a second large recompete that KBR has successfully cleared this year following the Army’s April award of seats on its potential $82 billion “LOGCAP V” global logistics contract.
LOGCAP V is under protest by a pair of disappointed bidders and some awardees that believe they should have a second shot at winning more than what they were chosen for. But analysts view KBR as one of the two biggest winners out of that initial set of awards.
Through MCPP, the Marine Corps aims to enhance operational responsiveness of geographic combatant commands related to expeditionary operations.
The contract has an initial five-year base period worth $530.4 million and work could extend to November 2027 if the Marine Corps exercises all option.
