FALLS CHURCH, Va., July 9 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has contracted a DynCorp International-led team to support the ongoing operations in southern Afghanistan with logistics services.

U.S. company DynCorp along with its partners CH2M Hill and Taos Industries received another task order from the Army under its Logistics Civil Augmentation Program IV contract.

Under the $643.5 million deal, the DynCorp-led team will provide logistics services including operations and maintenance in support of the Army's area of responsibility in the volatile south of Afghanistan.

"It is a tremendous honor for the DynCorp International team to provide logistics support in Afghanistan for the men and women of the U.S. Army," William Ballhaus, DynCorp International president and chief executive officer, said in a statement.

"I cannot think of a more important contribution we can offer for our nation's security, or a better example of serving today for a safe tomorrow."
