U.S. Transportation Command is negotiating a contract modification to enable a joint venture of KBR (NYSE: KBR) and Tier One Relocation to resume transition work on the potential $6.2 billion Global Household Goods Contract.
The move comes after the Court of Federal Claims denied protests of the contract award, USTRANSCOM said Friday.
GHC was awarded to HomeSafe Alliance in November and provides household goods transportation and warehousing support services for Department of Defense and U.S. Coast Guard personnel and their families worldwide.
HomeSafe kicked off transition work on March 3 but had to pause three weeks later following protests filed with COFC.
“The favorable decisions from both the Government Accountability Office and the Court of Federal Claims validate the integrity of the GHC program and award,” said Air Force Brig. Gen. Joel Safranek, director of the Defense Personal Property Management Office.
“We’re excited to resume the transition towards this vital reform effort to the household goods relocation program,” added Safranek.
The command said that phase-in of domestic shipments will start after the peak moving season in 2023.
