KBR Awarded Contract for Facilities Management Services in the Middle East for UK MOD

KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced it has been awarded the Facilities Management Services Operations (FMSO) contract by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD).

Under a major exercise by the MOD to rationalize contracts across its operational estate, KBR will now be the sole supplier delivering FM services to the UK MOD on deployed operations.

Under the terms of the contract KBR will deliver a vast range of hard and soft FM services across the UK MOD’s operational estate in the Middle East to include:

  • Operate and maintain existing infrastructure assets and optimize the use of assets across the operational estates
  • Provide cost effective delivery for real life support services including catering, cleaning, laundry, waste management and pest control services
  • Provide services including grounds maintenance, reprographics, office machinery and government furnished equipment servicing and maintenance

The wide range of services delivered under the contract will see KBR teams working alongside the MOD in locations such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Oman, Bahrain and the UAE and will require KBR to deliver flexibility, responsiveness and agility to meet any changes in the operational estate.

The contract also provides the potential to support both operational deployments and exercises undertaken by the MOD on a call off basis going forward, particularly in the Middle East Region.

KBR’s Government Services business provides deployed operational support to the highest standards across the world.

“We are proud to have supported the British military on deployed operations over many years and are pleased to have been chosen as their support partner across the Middle East,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, EMEA. “This award is a testament to the hard work of our many staff who ensure that military bases function seamlessly day in, day out, in some of the most austere locations in the world, enabling military personnel to focus on their operational duties effectively.”

The initial period of this contract is three years, with associated revenue of $48million, with the option to extend by up to two years for a total maximum value of $80 million.
