Vectrus contracted to support USAF operations at Maxwell-Gunter AFB in Alabama


Vectrus Systems has received a base operations contract to support the US Air Force (USAF) at Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base (AFB) in Alabama.

Valued at $37m, the award is the re-compete of an existing contract the company has held since 2009, Vectrus stated.

The total contract duration is seven years, including a base period with four one-year options and two one-year incentive option periods.

"The contract covers a complete range of base operations support services including maintenance on foreign object damage, transient maintenance, static display maintenance and resource management."

Vectrus president and CEO Chuck Prow said: "This was a great achievement for our team; we worked diligently to provide our Air Force client with an industry leading solution at an affordable price.

"We look forward to continuing the delivery of service and performance excellence to our Air Force client over the next several years."

The contract covers a complete range of base operations support services including maintenance on foreign object damage, transient maintenance, static display maintenance and resource management.

Vectrus will also provide communications and information technology, publishing, installation management, operations, installation engineering, emergency management, airfield management, supply, transportation, community services and human resources.

In February this year, the company was contracted to provide logistics services in support of the USAF's Bagram Expeditionary Logistics Readiness Squadron at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan.

The $14m installation services task order was awarded under the Air Force Contract Augmentation Program IV (AFCAP IV) that is aimed to support the global contingency missions of the air force and other US government agencies.
