COLORADO SPRINGS, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- U.S. Army's Rock Island Contracting Center has contracted ITT Corp. to provide comprehensive support services for all U.S. Army facilities in Kuwait.

The award is for one year with four one-year options. It is worth about $1.4 billion if all options are exercised.

"We understand the criticality of the U.S. military mission in Kuwait and appreciate the Army's acknowledgment that ITT is the best company to handle its complex needs in the region," said Michael Gulino, president and general manager of ITT Systems. "We have a reputation for providing world-class facilities operations support around the globe and that is exactly what our customers in Kuwait can expect from us going forward."

Under the contract, ITT will provide the full spectrum of logistics, security, transportation, life support and facilities services at Camp Arifjan, Camp Buehring, Camp Virginia and a number of other critical military installations in the Kuwait area of responsibility.

The company said the award is the fourth major facilities operations contract awarded to ITT in 2010 and solidifies the company's role as a premier provider of base operations services in the Middle East.
