By Richard High09 July 2009
US Army's Sustainment Command (ASC) has awarded Fluor Corporation a contract to provide services under its Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) IV Task Order 5 to support its operations in Afghanistan.
The total value of the task order is potentially more than US$ 7 billion over five years, which includes up to four, one-year options that may be awarded for Task Order 5.
Fluor will book awards as the task order is incrementally funded, with an initial undisclosed award expected to be booked in the third quarter of 2009.
The task order award includes work for 74 operating bases in Afghanistan's Northern region. Fluor will provide construction services, power, water, housing, base operations, sustainment services and logistics support.
In a statement Flour said the new award is its fourth and "most significant task order to date".
Fluor was previously awarded work under LOGCAP IV, which included Task Order 2 to expand and operate four forward operating bases in Northern Afghanistan, Task Order 3 to provide measurement and testing services in Kuwait, and Task Order 4 to build and operate eight additional forward operating bases in Afghanistan.
The value of the work undertaken by Flour to date for the US Army in Afghanistan totals US$ 300 million.
