DynCorp International, Inc. and Fluor Corporation have won five-year contracts worth up to $7.5 billion for each company in support of the U.S. troop build-up in Afghanistan, according to an Army official. Falls Church, Virginia-based DynCorp International Inc. and Irving, Texas-based Fluor Corp. each won basic one-year contracts worth $1.5 billion with four one-year options. The awards are the largest since the program was restructured into a competition.
DynCorp will take over laundry, food services and maintenance for existing base camps in southern Afghanistan, as well as build new bases as needed to accommodate a planned increase to about 68, 000 troops from about 57, 000 stationed there today. Fluor will take over similar services in northern Afghanistan.
