ITT Scores Massive Afghanistan Deal

ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) won a pair of contracts from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Middle East District to support facilities operations, maintenance and training services for the Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF) in Afghanistan.

The firm reports that each award is for a one-year base period with options for four additional years. The contract for Northern Afghanistan is valued at up to $450 million and the contract for Southern Afghanistan is valued at up to $350 million for a total of up to $800 million if all options are exercised. The two contracts are independent of one another.

According to the firm, “under this award, ITT will provide operations and maintenance support for ANSF facilities, while simultaneously training Afghan personnel to assume responsibility for operating and maintaining the facilities at the completion of the contract.”

“Under the unique structure of this award, we’ll be providing a robust support capability for ongoing security operations in Afghanistan, while training and developing local ANSF personnel to eventually take over this critical support mission in the future, ” said Michael Gulino, president and general manager of ITT Systems.
