COLORADO SPRINGS, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Middle East District has contracted ITT Corp. for work in Afghanistan.

The two contracts -- to provide facilities operations, maintenance and training services for the Afghanistan National Security Forces -- are each for 1-year periods with options for four additional years.

The contract for northern Afghanistan is valued at up to $450 million and the contract for southern Afghanistan is valued at up to $350 million for a total of $800 million if all options are exercised, ITT said in a news release.

Under this award, ITT will provide operations and maintenance support for ANSF facilities, while also training Afghan personnel to assume responsibility for operating and maintaining the facilities.

"Under the unique structure of this award, we'll be providing a robust support capability for ongoing security operations in Afghanistan, while training and developing local ANSF personnel to eventually take over this critical support mission in the future," said ITT Systems President and General Manager Michael Gulino.
