ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 17 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force has contracted Dynamics Research Corp. to support the Global Logistics Support Center streamline data logistics and other services.

Massachusetts-based DRC will support the U.S. Air Force Global Logistics Support Center at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio under a follow-on contract worth $12.9 million. The Global Logistics Support Center is part of the Air Force Materiel Command.

DRC has been working to address faulty data anomalies in the Global Logistics Support Center's D200A data quality system. Under the new deal DRC will continue to identify discrepancies and develop corrections for the D200A system.

"Maintaining high data quality is an essential factor in the Air Force's ability to maintain cost-efficiency and readiness as well as streamlining logistics and supply chain management," Robert Smith, DRC Acquisition Management and Engineering group senior vice president and general manager, said in a statement.

"Over the past decade DRC has provided the Air Force with data quality management services, which have resulted in significant improvements in efficiency and data governance."
