"This new contract award will provide opportunity to create synergies resulting from the combination of KBR's ability to successfully execute urgent and compelling tasks in remote and austere environments around the globe and KBRwyle's long-standing service of delivering specialized solutions for U.S. government customers," said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. "Utilizing our global reach capabilities and our ability to uniquely integrate self-sustaining logistics and construction, our portfolio of capabilities has consistently delivered the right results for our U.S. government customers."
Bradie notes that for more than 50 years, KBR has designed or constructed projects across the globe for hydrocarbons and government customers and that KBRwyle has provided mission-critical support to the U.S. Air Force for over 60 years. "This contract is a great example of our ability to leverage our corporate expertise in program management with our strong customer relationships in the U.S. Government. Our ability to collaborate, and quickly allocate resources around the world demonstrates our unique value to our customers," Bradie continued.
This is an indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery (IDIQ) contract and expected revenue will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services Business Segment as task orders are awarded throughout the contract period.
