Reston, Va.-based Pragmatics announced Jan. 15 it has been awarded a contract to support the U.S. Dept. of the Navy’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) in its claims defense of the Iranian Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Program.
“We are very pleased to have been selected to continue this important work for the Navy’s Office of the General Counsel and the OGC’s Litigation Office,” Pragmatics COO Joe Brock said. “Our team of analysts will continue to use our diverse experience to gather, collect, inventory, and analyze potential evidence for this enormous project.”
Pragmatics analysts will continue to use forensic accounting and logistics to reconstruct the Navy’s FMS Program to Iran during the 1970s as required under the terms of a treaty signed by the U.S. government in 1981.
The OGC’s Litigation Office holds responsibility for all Navy Iranian claims defense support, including providing candid legal advice and counsel, effective advocacy and creative problem solving. The Office oversees document collection, inventory and analysis to provide the most exhaustive litigation support possible to the U.S. government.
The award is valued at more than $30 million over seven years if all options are exercised.
