FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 29 (UPI) -- U.S. Air Force war reserve materiel in the Middle East will continue to be managed by DynCorp International under the exercise of a contract option.

Company work includes the receipt, inventory, accountability, maintenance, repair, inspection, serviceability, marking, storage, security, shipping, and reporting of war reserve materiel in several locations in the region, the company said.

"DI has been supporting WRM [war reserve materiel] assets in the U.S. and Middle East since 2000," said George Krivo, DynLogistics senior vice president, DynCorp International. "We truly value the relationship we have developed with the Air Force in supporting this program."

Under the contract, DynCorp will maintain and repair government-furnished property and facilities, meet environmental compliance requirements at the facilities and provide exercise and contingency logistics support.

A firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-award-fee and cost reimbursable contract for the services was originally given to the company in 2008. This is the fifth option year exercised.
