KBR has been awarded a logistics information technology (IT) services and equipment contract to support the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).

Under the hybrid firm-fixed-price, time and materials task order, the company will provide the solutions to the NAVAIR’s Logistics and Maintenance Information Systems and Technology Division.

Valued at $276m, the order was awarded under the Alliant 2 Unrestricted Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC).

The Alliant 2 GWAC is awarded under a full and open competition to a pool of prime contractors to provide a full range of IT services.

NAVAIR will receive support from KBR for global information grid (GIG) and net-centric operations.

GIG is a globally interconnected capability network. It provides an end-to-end set of information to warfighters, policymakers, and support personnel.

The contract services will also support the delivery of logistics IT capability to other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies.

The tasks under the order are data transport, authentication, large scale storage, fleet user interfaces, hardware and software infrastructure, and analytics tools.

KBR will also engage in providing in-service systems engineering, modernisation, testing and sustainment capabilities.

KBR Government Solutions president Byron Bright said: “KBR’s talented workforce is proud to partner with NAVAIR in implementing and deploying cutting-edge IT solutions across the globe.”

Work will be performed at Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland and other DoD locations.

The latest order comes after KBR won a position on the contract in 2018.

A $45.9m logistics IT contract was awarded to KBR in July 2019 by the US Air Force Installation Contracting Center (AFICC).
