KBR awarded contract to deliver UK MOD's FM services in Middle East
KBR announced this week that it has been awarded the Facilities Management Services Operations (FMSO) contract by the UK Ministry of Defence in the Middle East. Under a major exercise by the MOD to rationalise contracts across its operational estate, KBR will now be the sole supplier delivering FM services to the UK MOD on deployed operations.
Under the terms of the contract KBR will deliver a vast range of hard and soft FM services across the UK MOD's operational estate in the Middle East to include:
* Provision of cost-effective delivery for real life support services including catering, cleaning, laundry, waste management and pest control services
* Provision of services including grounds maintenance, reprographics, office machinery and government furnished equipment servicing and maintenance
* Operation and maintenance of existing infrastructure assets and optimisation of the use of assets across the operational estates
The wide range of services delivered under the contract will see KBR teams working alongside the MOD in locations such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Oman, Bahrain and the UAE and will require KBR to deliver flexibility, responsiveness and agility to meet any changes in the operational estate.
The contract also provides the potential to support both operational deployments and exercises undertaken by the MOD on a call off basis, particularly in the Middle East Region.
KBR's Government Services business provides deployed operational support to the highest standards across the world.
"We are proud to have supported the British military on deployed operations over many years and are pleased to have been chosen as their support partner across the Middle East," says Jay Ibrahim, KBR president, EMEA. "This award is a testament to the hard work of our many staff who ensure that military bases function seamlessly day in, day out, in some of the most austere locations in the world, enabling military personnel to focus on their operational duties effectively."
The initial period of this contract is three years, with associated revenue of $48million, with the option to extend by up to two years for a total maximum value of $80 million. Revenue associated with this project will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services Business Segment in Q3 of 2017.
KBR is a global provider of differentiated professional services and technologies across the asset and programme lifecycle within the Government Services and Hydrocarbons sectors. KBR employs over 34,000 people worldwide (including joint ventures), with customers in more than 80 countries, and operations in 40 countries, across three synergistic global businesses:
