FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 7 (UPI) -- DynCorp International will proceed on implementing an earlier contract to train and mentor Afghan Ministry of Defense personnel.
The contract was initially awarded in February and has a two-year base period and an estimated value of $157.8 million, including a 60-day phase-in period to full performance.

Under the Afghan Ministry of Defense program support contract, DynCorp will provide dedicated in-depth mentoring, training, subject matter expertise and program support to staff of the multinational Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan and the Afghanistan defense ministry.
