ABM Government Services Awarded Contract To Service U.S. Army Base Fort Benning, GA
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
ABM (NYSE:ABM) , a leading provider of facility solutions, announced today that the Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded ABM Government Services with a task order to provide a full range of logistics support services to U.S. Army base, Fort Benning, GA.
The modification logistics contract, worth potentially $42.9 million in the base year and $50 million in the years to follow – potentially $268.9 million over the life of the five-year contract – was awarded through the U.S. Army Contracting Command Rock Island (ACC-RI). Under the terms, ABM Government Services will support Fort Benning Directorate of Logistics with an array of services, including:
- Material Maintenance
- Retail/Wholesale Supply
- Transportation Support
ABM was awarded the logistics support contract under the U.S. Army’s Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise (EAGLE) program. The program is reserved for key logistics contracts and seeks to award task orders to full-service prime contractors who can provide an integrated approach for global logistics services in support of missions. According to the U.S. Army, the EAGLE acquisition strategy centralizes functional responsibility, eliminates redundancy, and maximizes efficiency by combining maintenance, supply and transportation support services into one performance requirement.
“The EAGLE acquisition strategy was put in place due to the fact that, in the past, many installations placed separate contracts on these logistics requirements, and that simply wasn’t a cost effective use of American taxpayer dollars,” said ABM Government Services President Les Cunningham. “One of ABM’s central philosophies lies in offering integrated services, and this is certainly true of our government services business as well. We’re pleased to know that our commitment to offering a full suite of services meets the needs of the U.S. Army.”
Cunningham continued: “We’re honored to service Fort Benning and we feel this speaks highly to the reputation of ABM Government Services in the military community. Providing these critical services for military personnel requires a partner with experience in military environments, and our expert team is well-equipped to do the job.”
