HOUSTON Ð (February 11, 2019) Ð KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its global government services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded two contract modifications to continue providing base operating support services (BOSS) to the U.S. Navy in Djibouti and the Kingdom of Bahrain. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia, awarded both contract extensions.

KBRwyle won a one-year contract modification to continue providing a full spectrum of services at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti and other locations within Africa. With this extension, KBRwyle will support a base population of thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen. This work will include everything from management and administration to air operations and galley services. The contract modification is the first of a possible seven option years on a $441 million firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract originally won in 2017.

The services will primarily be performed at the Naval Support Facility, as well as at two forward operating locations Chabelley Air Field in Djibouti and Camp Simba in Manda Bay, Kenya. KBRwyle has provided base operating support services at Camp Lemonnier, the largest U.S. base in Africa, since 2013. Its work in the region dates back to 2003.

KBRwyle also received a one-year contract modification to continue support services at Naval Support Activity Bahrain. KBRwyle will provide a full range of services, including galley, security operations, and facilities, waste and utilities management. This is the first of a possible seven options years on a $91M indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract originally won in 2017.

These awards follow a recent $62M BOSS contract modification awarded to the company to support Navy Support Facility Diego Garcia in the British Indian Ocean Territory.
"These extensions are a testament to the confidence the U.S. military has in KBRwyle to continue providing mission critical operations services to U.S. Navy facilities around the world," said Byron Bright, KBR President Government Services U.S. "The awards highlight KBRwyle's unique ability to deliver excellent services in diverse environments."

While delivering vital services at these locations, KBRwyle has remained focused on safety. Exemplifying this commitment, KBRwyle has over 20 million hours without a lost-time incident in Djibouti despite its remote and austere conditions.
