FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has given ManTech International a contract modification to continue rapid assessment and repair of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles.

The contract period is for two months, with eight one-month options. The value of the award if all options are exercised is $506.8 million.

ManTech said the award from the U.S. Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command includes technology insertion, upgrades and modifications, particularly in regard to route clearance vehicles, as well as performing warehouse operations, logistics management and distribution of materiel.

The work will be conducted in Afghanistan, Kuwait and at U.S. locations as needed.
