FALLS CHURCH, Va., Aug. 18 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force has contracted DynCorp International for aircraft maintenance and other services at the Joint Base Andrews-Naval Air Facility Washington.

The competitively awarded, firm-fixed-price contract has a one-year base performance period with six option years. Base-year work is valued at $54.4 million. The total contract value is $400.9 million if all six option years are exercised.

"This is a great win for us on an incredibly important program," said Catherine Gridley, vice president of Aviation at DynCorp. "DI was the first contractor awarded this program 10 years ago and it is a testament to the dedication and quality of our personnel that the Air Force again selected our team to maintain and support the aircraft that transport our nation's leaders."

This contract is a re-compete for DynCorp's Joint Base Andrews work and will provide services for the Very Important Person Special Air Mission.

Under the award, DynCorp will provide services that include aircraft maintenance, transient alert, munitions, base supply and fuels in support of aircraft assigned to the 11th Wing and 89th Wing at Joint Base Andrews-Naval Air Facility Washington.

Included in the services scope are aircraft maintenance, servicing and fueling for all U.S. and foreign transient aircraft.
