The award date for the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program V was delayed until mid-April to give the Army extra time to review proposals, a contracting spokesman told Inside Defense.
The award for the massive logistics program for military bases across the globe has been delayed before. At one point, it was slated for Sept. 13 but postponed to Oct. 10.
“While there remains a strong desire to meet established time lines, the integrity of the source selection process is the ultimate priority,” Edward Worley, a spokesman with Army Contracting Command, told Inside Defense in an email. “Every effort will be made to maintain and even accelerate the current time line while simultaneously ensuring quality is not sacrificed.”
The 10-year contract covers a number of services for personnel overseas, including laundry, food, maintenance and housing. It’s structured as an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract.
The entire contract is worth up to $82 billion, according to the Army’s solicitation notice.
