A joint venture of KBR (NYSE: KBR) and Tier One Relocation will begin the nine-month transition phase of the potential $6.2 billion Global Household Goods Contract after the Government Accountability Office denied protests of the contract award.
GHC was initially awarded to HomeSafe Alliance in November and covers the provision of household goods transportation and warehousing support services for Department of Defense and U.S. Coast Guard personnel and other federal employees, USTRANSCOM said Friday.
“We’re excited to begin implementing the contract to improve the household goods shipment process for service members, civilians and their families,” said Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, commander of USTRANSCOM.
HomeSafe Alliance will develop and test interfaces with the agencies’ information technology system, provide customer service and offer training on the vendor’s IT system during the transition period, which will run through December.
The command said the contract also includes the delivery of digital tools to facilitate communications between the moving manager and customers and help DOD manage approximately 325,000 annual shipments of household goods.
