ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Program and technical support services for the U.S. Coast Guard's security assistance projects are to be provided by the VSE Corp.

The contract for the projects administered by the Coast Guard's Foreign Military Sales Program is a one-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award with four one-year options. Its value, if all options were exercised, would be more than $99 million.

"We are very pleased to have been selected by Headquarters U.S. Coast Guard to provide support for the maintenance, modification and transfer of USCG maritime assets around the world," said VSE International Group President Harry Flammang.

"From 1999-2007, VSE worked side-by-side with the USCG to successfully transfer cutters and craft and provide follow-on support services."

The comprehensive program support to be provided by the company includes financial analysis, engineering, industrial, technical, logistics and transportation, warehouse and supply, and training support services.

The support will be for the acquisition, storage, repair, overhaul and transfer of former cutters, boats and related materials to other countries.
