$17.9M to Support the US Army Rapid Equipping Force
Small business qualifier The Wexford Group International Inc. in Vienna, VA won a $17.9 million firm-fixed-price contract for Engineering Services and Support for the U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force. Work will be performed at Fort Belvoir, VA (60%), Vienna, VA (20%), and Iraq (20%), and is expected to be complete by March 31, 2006. Bids were solicited via the World Wide Web on Dec. 20, 2005, and six bids were received by the U.S. Army Contracting Agency at White Sands Missile Range, NM (W9124Q-06-C-0123).
The Rapid Equipping Force is responsible for getting helpful off-the-shelf items to the troops, quickly. The green laser pointers being delivered to Iraq and the MarcBOT IV robot in Iraq and Afghanistan are just two of the items the US Army REF has managed to rush into the field.
