Serco selected for major US Professional and Technical Services contract
Date : 22 September 2006
Leading international service company Serco has been selected as a supplier of managed services for two multiple award contracts from the US Army Research Development and Engineering Command.
The contracts are similar to selected supplier lists, run for a term of 27 months and have a total value of $370m.
Under the terms of the contracts, Serco is one of a select numbers of suppliers that can provide a range of professional or technical services under the Cooperative Administrative Support Unit programme, on a world-wide basis.
Serco is one of five companies selected for the Professional Services contract, valued at $260 million. Under this contract, Serco will compete for federal agency projects that require people with higher-level educational degrees or professional qualifications, such as engineers, accountants or attorneys.
The Technical Services contract, valued at $110 million, was awarded to Serco and two other companies, and includes work that requires personnel with training in technical, craft or trade skills.
"Our wide range of capabilities in human capital management, professional services, logistics, engineering and cost analysis is a good match for a broad contract like this," said Christopher Hyman, Chief Executive of Serco Group plc.
"By being able to integrate our services, we can better meet our clients needs for effective management of complex projects."
