Deal will see KBRwyle provide rapid solutions to fix problems identified through JT&E Program

KBR, a major engineering, procurement and construction company, has said that its global government business service, KBRwyle, has been awarded a $900 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract by the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineering Research and Development Centre.

According to a statement, the deal will see the KBR unit provide rapid solutions to fix problems identified through the Department of Defence’s Joint Test and Evaluation (JT&E) Program. KBRwyle added that it had been selected as one of the six prime contractors on this 10-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract. It had earlier secured a seat on the previous JT&E Program contract in 2007.

As per the multi-award contract, KBRwyle will assist the program in finding new ways for US war fighters to accomplish their missions, using today’s equipment and processes, it explained. The company will also have the opportunity to bid on task orders issued by the JT&E Program Offices to address and resolve critical war fighter issues.

“We are honoured to be selected as a prime on this contract again and take seriously the confidence exhibited by the DoD in choosing us to continue on this important programme,” said Byron Bright, president, KBR Government Services US.

“We will continue to work with the JT&E Program Office to develop rapid and effective solutions to complex warfighter issues with professionalism, rigor and innovation,” he noted.

Utilising its recognised systems engineering and test and evaluation expertise, KBRwyle’s support will include test and evaluation, specialized engineering, cybersecurity, and intelligence.
