Reston, VA (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services to the federal government, announced today that the U.S. Army has awarded the company a new indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract to provide support services for the Army’s Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) at Fort Benning, Georgia. The contract vehicle supports the development of training strategies, doctrine, capabilities, analysis, instruction, and products for the current and future force. Serco is among seven large business awardees on the $458 million ID/IQ contract over a five-year period, which includes a one-year base and four one-year option periods. Serco is also a subcontractor to Charles F. Day & Associates LLC, one of the seven small businesses who received an award on the contract.
Serco will compete for work under seven task areas, including analytical support, instruction, training development, doctrine development, combat development, and simulations and analysis support. The company will develop training strategies and concepts for the Army’s current and future forces, including the Heavy Brigade Combat Team, Stryker Brigade Combat Team; and Infantry Brigade Combat Team (HBCT/SBCT/IBCT); Battlefield Surveillance Brigade; and Airborne and Ranger teams. Task orders awarded under the contract will provide the Army with the full spectrum of training solutions, including live, virtual, constructive, and gaming.
“Serco has supported the U.S. Army for over two decades, and we are proud to have the opportunity to work with the Maneuver Center of Excellence,” said Harry Gatanas, Serco’s Senior Vice President of the Defense & Intelligence Group. “Our training capabilities and managed services provide state-of-the-practice solutions to support their training needs.”
The Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, GA is a military entity created by the consolidation of the Army’s Infantry School at Fort Benning with the Armor School at Fort Knox as a direct result of the 2005 Army Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission’s decision to consolidate a number of schools and installations to produce “Centers of Excellence” by September 2011.
