ManTech Receives up to $300M to Support US forces in Iraq & Afghanistan
ManTech International Corporation has received a contract to support the U.S. Army as a lead subcontractor to VSE Corporation. ManTech will provide a substantial level of the services ordered under the contract, including deployed sustainment management; deployed logistics and repairs management; unique system training and curriculum support; and resource management, acquisition and administrative support for unique and specialized systems. These services will be provided in Southwest Asia – including Iraq and Afghanistan.
ManTech specializes in sophisticated communication and technology equipment, providing an important support role for the U.S. soldiers on the ground and in the air. Its employees carry no weapons, but work shoulder to shoulder with the troops and are often directly embedded with the units that they support. Notably, ManTech provided support and implementation of the digital equipment that was used by the 4th Infantry Division and Task Force 121 to capture Saddam Hussein in late 2003. RE: this particular contract…
The competitively awarded contract has a base-year and an option-year, with a total potential value under the prime contract in excess of $300 million over two years. Initial funding on the contract will be up to $30 million, with expansion to occur based upon customer requirements. ManTech anticipates that support under this contract will incorporate services from existing contracts as well as additional support to new and existing customers. See corporate release.
