Agility set to execute new US Army contract
Kuwait City, February 10, 2008
Agility said it will begin executing the Dining Facilities (DFAC) contract, awarded by the US Army Contracting Command Southwest Asia – Kuwait, in the next week.
The potential three-year contract, with a one-year base period and two one-year options, is worth up to $127 million over the total term of service.
Under this contract, Agility Defense and Government Services is leveraging its vast logistics and supply chain capabilities in the Gulf region to provide full food services to US soldiers and sailors through 11 dining facilities located in different parts of Kuwait.
A leader in the specialised logistics and supply chain industry, Agility has a solid strong reputation for customer service excellence which has been demonstrated through contracts such as the Subsistence Prime Vendor that covers the provision of food and related items to US military facilities throughout Iraq and Kuwait.
Tarek Sultan, chairman and managing director of Agility, said: “We look forward to providing the highest quality food service to the US Army in Kuwait, and extending our strong record for delivering dependable, best value, award-winning logistics services to the US military.”
The Kuwait DFAC contract, a competitively bid, firm fixed price contract, is the latest among many other significant wins by Agility including the US Air Force Base Maintenance Contract in Spain and two contracts for the U.S. Navy contingency services. –TradeArabia News Service
