Army to Extend Engility’s Law Enforcement Professional Services Contract in Afghanistan

The United States Army intends to extend Engility Corporation’s contract W91CRB-13-C-0021 by 12 months on a sole source basis to accommodate expected increases.

This will allow performance to continue until 31 December 2020 to support Operation Resolute Support in Afghanistan for the United States Army.

A new competitive contract for these services will be competed while this extension is in place.

This contract is for highly trained Law Enforcement Professionals (LEPs) to instruct and facilitate U.S. forces to understand, identify, target, penetrate, interdict, and suppress criminal-like, insurgent network enterprises and special group criminals. This knowledge is then shared with Host Nation Security Forces.

According to FedBizOpps: “If this contract is not extended, there will be a significant duplication of costs. A 90-day transition period would be required to allow for the setup of a Country Management Team in Afghanistan and the current requirement for the recruitment and training of 58 LEPs.”
