HOUSTON – (May 10, 2016) – KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been selected by the UK's Ministry of Defence for the Operational Support Capability Contract (OSCC).
The contract will see KBR continue to be embedded in to the British military operational headquarters, the Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJHQ) for up to the next four years. KBR will provide its expertise in project management, engineering, supply chain management, logistics and project delivery to support military planning, operations and training.
This win is a testament to KBR's long term commitment to the British military operating alongside one another in Afghanistan, Iraq and other remote locations.
"We are extremely proud of the strong partnership that we have developed with the British Military through successfully delivering operational support for the past 12 years. Our track record of delivering projects and support, sometimes in the most austere and hostile environments – and often on an urgent basis - has proven our ability to deliver in this challenging landscape. We are pleased to have been selected to continue this responsibility for up to the next four years," said Andrew Barrie, Head of KBR's UK Government Services business.
KBR's Government Services business provides deployed operational support to the highest standards across the world.
President of Government Services Andrew Pringle said, "Our work with the military, for which KBR is perhaps best known, goes back decades. There is now a clear role for contractors to work in support of our military colleagues in the deployed space as a truly integrated force."
"The award of this contract continues on the company's commitment to win the right work including more long term, enduring contracts with foreign governments," Pringle added.
Revenue associated with this project will be recognized as task orders are confirmed.
