CHANTILLY, Va., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- U.S. government services company Engility Holdings is to provide support the U.S. Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense.

Support will be provided in four areas of an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity multiple recipient award: engineering and technical support, business and analytical assistance, information technology and logistics.

Six domains are covered under the overall contract.

Engility didn't disclose how many other companies have received the contract, which is part of JPEO-CBD's ongoing requirement for Omnibus Program, Engineering and Technical Support services. The potential value of the overall contract is $495 million for all awardees if all options are exercised.

"The JPEO-CBD continues to be an important partner for Engility and we are honored to be chosen for this award," said Engility President and Chief Executive Officer Tony Smeraglinolo. "This selection recognizes the history of Engility's past success supporting such a critical mission area and we look forward to the opportunity to expand our support across the Department of Defense Chem-Bio community in the future."
