BAE Systems has won an estimated $60 million task order to help the Defense Department develop a training program for disabling improvised explosive devices.

The company will develop the curriculum and implement the five-year program for the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization.

The order falls under a potential $900 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract awarded last year by the U.S. General Services Administration.

The company is competing with SAIC and at least two other companies for task orders to offer research, analysis, training, and operations support services.

BAE has provided support services for JIEDDO since 2006.

Work will occur at offices in Northern Virginia and at military sites in the U.S. and internationally.
