ManTech International Tapped for $100.8 Million Contract to Repair MRAPs
ManTech International won a $100.8 million modified contract from the U.S. Army to assess and repair U.S. military vehicles, according to the Washington Business Journal.
Headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, ManTech will assist with the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Family of Vehicles, better known as MRAP. The $100.8 million contract is for the first 60 days of performance and eight one-month options are possible. That additional period is worth $406 million, which brings the full contract award to $506.8 million.
The Northern Virginia firm will embark on delivering the quick assessment and fixing of MRAP vehicles that have been damaged in combat. ManTech also will undertake mechanical failures and upgrades, as well as services that modify the MRAPs.
The work to be performed by people filling defense jobs and intelligence jobs will occur in worldwide locations including Afghanistan, Kuwait and within the U.S.
Military.com reports eight U.S. soldiers died during fiscal year 2011 as a consequence of rollovers from MRAP family of vehicles. The U.S. effort in the theater of Afghanistan is increasingly demanding more of these type of vehicles during the past several years.
