PASADENA, Calif., Oct. 29 (UPI) -- The U.S. Marine Corps has given Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. two task order contracts worth a combined $18.5 million for logistics and operational support.

The first task order is for programmatic and technical support for the Marines' Weapon System Management Center and the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Program and includes engineering, technical, program management, facilities operations and management, integrated logistics and administrative services.

The task order is for three years and carries a value of $12 million, the company said.

The second task order contract, worth an estimated $6.5 million, is for two years and supports the Marine's worldwide Consolidated Storage Program and involves the delivery of administrative, sustainment acquisition, technical, logistics, and facility and program management services.

Both task orders come under the five-year, multiple-award Marine Corps Logistics Support Services indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract the company won earlier.

Under the main contract, Jacobs provides support services in the areas of logistics, supply chain and distribution management, maintenance management and strategic prepositioning capability.

"We are delighted to have this opportunity to strengthen our partnership with the Marine Corps and to assist in logistics planning and operational support for the Marine warfighters," Jacobs Group Vice President Robert Norfleet said.
