ABM providing full logistics services for Fort Benning

NEW YORK, Sept. 20 (UPI) -- ABM Government Services will provide full range of logistics support services to Fort Benning, Ga., under a contract modification.

The five-year contract has a value of $42.9 million for the base year of performance and a potential value of $268.9 million over the life of the contract.

ABM said the contract from the U.S. Army Contracting Command Rock Island is for services such as integrated facility management; military base operations; leadership development; education and training; energy efficiency management; medical support services; and construction management.

The contract comes under the U.S. Army's Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise (EAGLE) program, which is reserved for key logistics contractors who can provide an integrated approach for global logistics services.

"The EAGLE acquisition strategy was put in place due to the fact that, in the past, many installations placed separate contracts on these logistics requirements, and that simply wasn't a cost effective use of American taxpayer dollars," said ABM Government Services President Les Cunningham. "One of ABM's central philosophies lies in offering integrated services, and this is certainly true of our government services business as well.

"Providing these critical services for military personnel requires a partner with experience in military environments, and our expert team is well-equipped to do the job."
