FALLS CHURCH, Va., June 14 (UPI) -- DynCorp International has been selected by the U.S. State Department to support its Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract features a one-year base performance period with four option years. It is worth a total $10 billion to DynCorp and four other companies, which will compete for task orders to support criminal justice sector development programs worldwide, providing advisers, other specialists and mission-support services.

"Supporting the development of law enforcement and criminal justice programs around the world is one of our core competencies and we bring decades of experience to these programs," said DynCorp President Steve Schorer. "We are honored to have the opportunity to compete for task orders under this contract and look forward to supporting this important program."

DynCorp International has since 1994 assisted the U.S. government in finding, training, deploying and supporting U.S. civilian police to assist and train local police forces in post-conflict nations.

The company said it has deployed more than 6,000 law-enforcement professionals in 16 countries across the globe.
