HOUSTON, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Texas company KBR will provide base operations and support services to the U.S. Army Europe under a single award task order contract.

The contract is a hybrid firm-fixed-priced/cost-plus-fixed-fee vehicle with a one-year base performance period and four one-year options. Its value is estimated at $245 million if all options are exercised.

Under the contract, KBR's work includes facility maintenance and troop, operational and construction services.

Initially, the work will be performed in Romania and Kosovo but will expand to USAREUR's entire area of responsibility, which includes 51 countries.

KBR said the USC II support contract is the fifth it has received. The company is performing USC work for USAREUR in Kosovo, Romania and Germany.

"I am pleased that KBR has been selected to continue its services for the United States Army Europe," said Mark Williams, KBR's group president, Infrastructure, Government and Power.

"This contract aligns with KBR North American Government and Logistics' objective to leverage the company's position in the Department of Defense sustainment market outside the continental United States by maintaining KBR's incumbency status on this BOS contract.

"It also supports our goal to grow OCONUS contingency work since services could be activated anywhere in the USAREUR AOR."
