PAE has secured a spot on a potential five-year, $2.4B indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for training services to the U.S. Army.

The company said Monday it will compete with three other firms for task orders under the Enterprise Training Services contract jointly awarded by Army Contracting Command and the military branch’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.

Contractors will assist in training activities; plan, manage and support exercises; and maintain and operate training systems to provide quick response and operational training for allies and soldiers.

PAE CEO John Heller said the company has provided training services in 48 countries over the past 12 years.

Heller added these efforts aimed to build partner-nation capacity, strengthen U.S. foreign relations and address the country’s national security objectives.
