Akima Support Operations has been awarded a contract to provide an array of analysis, management and operational support to the Army Field Support Battalion at Fort Hood, Texas.
With a 5-year period of performance, the award has a total contract value of approximately $101.3 million, if all options are exercised.
“This award further demonstrates the confidence that military customers have in the world-class logistics capabilities offered by the Akima portfolio of companies,” said Scott Rauer, president of Akima’s Facilities Solutions Group. “Fort Hood is home to many legendary United States Army units, and we are proud to support the mission of such an important and storied military facility.”
The award comes under the Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise Program. It calls on ASO to work in support of the Army logistics mission, focusing on efficiency and continuous improvement programs to support efforts for the Department of the Army, coalition partners, foreign governments and other Defense Department agencies.
“Our experience providing support to facilities similar to Fort Hood was invaluable to receiving this award,” said Doug Magee, ASO president. “We are excited to immediately provide value on this contract through our agility and our experience.”
According to Akima, the company’s support will focus primarily on materiel maintenance, supply services, ammunition services, transportation and associated logistics analysis and management functions in support of the mission.
