KBR Wins Seat on U.S. Navy's $900M Global Contingency Services Multiple Award Contract

/ -- HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - October 12, 2016) - KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its wholly owned U.S. Government Services subsidiary, KBRwyle, has been awarded one of five seats on the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pacific's (NAVFAC Pacific) Global Contingency Services Multiple Award Contract (GCSMAC) II. GCSMAC II is an eight year indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contract.

Under this contract, KBRwyle will have the opportunity to compete on $900M in task orders in support of worldwide global contingency services for NAVFAC. Specifically, services will include short-term contingency Facility Support Contract/Base Operating Support (FSC/BOS) services with incidental construction in support of natural disasters, humanitarian efforts, the full range of military actions, and interruptions in services at various locations throughout the world.

"We are pleased to have the opportunity to further KBRwyle's long history providing contingency support solutions for the U.S. Navy through GCSMAC II," said Roger Wiederkehr, President, KBRwyle. "KBRwyle has successfully delivered mission critical projects for the U.S. military for decades. This win is a testament to our reputation for disciplined delivery, high customer satisfaction and unparalleled performance-often in the most austere environments," continued Wiederkehr.

As an incumbent on the Navy's GCSMAC I and its predecessor Construction Capabilities Contract (CONCAP), KBRwyle has successfully provided services for the U.S. Navy under these contract vehicles including supporting the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster relief effort. KBRwyle is currently operating in Poland supporting the U.S. Navy and Missile Defense Agency, providing Integrated Base Operations Support under a task order that was awarded under GCSMAC I.

As a major supporting contractor for the U.S. Department of Defense, KBRwyle is one of the only contractors to maintain a prime position on all major contingency multiple award task order contracts (MATOC) for the U.S. military including the U.S. Army's LOGCAP, the U.S. Navy's GCSMAC and GCCMAC, the U.S. Air Force's AFCAP and the USACE MED MATOC.

This is an IDIQ contract and expected revenue will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services Business Segment as task orders are awarded throughout the contract period.
