HOUSTON, Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today its global government services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded a $62 million contract modification to continue providing base operating support services (BOSS) at Navy Support Facility Diego Garcia in the British Indian Ocean Territory.
The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific has awarded KBRwyle the first of a possible seven option years on a $515 million fixed-price-with-award fee contract originally won by KBRwyle in 2017.
KBRwyle will continue to perform a range of services that will support the base and look after the welfare and wellbeing of its sailors in one of the most isolated regions in the world. These services will include facilities management, IT, supply, utilities, administration and public safety. Additionally, it will provide morale, welfare and recreation support, and port and air operations.
"As one of the few companies that has the expertise to support the U.S. military in such remote locations, it's our honor to continue serving the U.S. Navy's men and women in Diego Garcia," said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. "This work further solidifies our position as a trusted base operating support provider to the U.S. military."
KBRwyle will also continue to serve up its award-winning galley services. Its dining facility at Diego Garcia recently earned a 5-Star accreditation – the Navy's highest level of evaluation for food service operations.
KBRwyle has provided critical operations, maintenance, and logistics services across the globe supporting the U.S. government since WWII. KBRwyle is currently performing these services in the most extreme and austere environments for multiple U.S. Navy and Army military bases around the world, including the largest U.S. base in Africa.
