Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL), today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary IRG has been awarded a $60 million single-award contract to provide training to enhance the ability of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) staff to design, implement and monitor development activities around the world.
The contract, a single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity vehicle with a base period plus four option years, will be managed by USAID’s Office of Human Resources/Training and Education Division. This re-compete win is a follow-on contract to the existing Project/Program Management Training (PPMT) IQC, which Engility has managed for nine years.
Under this new opportunity, Engility training and learning specialists will assist USAID with designing, developing and delivering professional development for USAID employees worldwide through a combination of instructor-led training, web-based training, distance learning, and facilitation services. This instruction will help USAID staff plan and implement development project and activities in more than 80 countries. The Engility team also will continue to train USAID Contracting Officer’s Representatives around the world.
“We are very pleased to have won this award, which we believe is a reflection of the high-quality work our team has done for nine years under the PPMT contract,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “We appreciate the confidence and trust USAID has placed in the work we have done, which has provided excellent training and integrated learning solutions for USAID staff around the world. USAID staff provides tremendously critical foreign assistance work on behalf of our country and we are honored to support the men and women who are working in these locations. Each one of them is making a difference in the lives of many.”
