The U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command (USASOAC) has awarded
DynCorp International (DI) a task order under the Contract Field Teams
(CFT) contract to provide aviation support to the 160th Special
Operations Aviation Regiment – Airborne (SOAR-A) at Fort Campbell, Ky.
“DI has meaningful and extensive experience with this contract and we
are honored to once again support the 106th SOAR-A,” said Jim
Myles, group vice president, Aviation, DynCorp International. “We look
forward to utilizing decades of experience with USASOAC and supporting
their mission requirements.”
From its inception in the early 80s until 2010, DI provided the 160th
with outstanding aviation services. The task order was awarded, briefly,
to another firm, and last week, the U.S. Army notified DI that the work
will return to DI.
DI team members will provide field and sustainment level maintenance on
aircraft, aircraft subsystems and aviation support systems and
logistics. The competitively-awarded task order, under the CFT
indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity ("IDIQ") contract, has an eight
month base period with two, one-year options and a total contract value
of $54.5 million if all options are exercised.
More than 300 DI employees will be based at Fort Campbell for this work,
where DI already supports two other contracts – aircraft maintenance and
support for the 101st and base operations services for the U.S. Army
Directorate of Logistics.
