SPRINGFIELD, Va., Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Versar Inc., a U.S. project management company, is continuing its support of U.S. Department of Defense reconstruction work in Iraq.
The renewal of company work in the country comes under a Personal Services and Support contract originally awarded a year ago by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Middle East District.
Versar said the contract option exercised is for one year and can be worth up to $4.4 million. The specific nature of the contracted support wasn't disclosed.
"Versar is honored to continue to provide our support to USACE and to those deployed in Iraq," said Versar President Jeff Wagonhurst. "The continuation of this contract is a testament to the value of the personal services and assistance we provide in Iraq and an example of our worldwide reach and capabilities.
"The extension of this contract also means Versar is providing personal services to USACE in both contingency theaters -- Iraq and Afghanistan. We look forward to providing continued high value services to USACE in the coming year."
Versar, which has headquarters in Virginia, said it has assisted in U.S. reconstruction efforts in Iraq since 2004.
