Booz Allen to Support U.S. Army Training Under New Contract
McLean, Virginia-based defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton recently won a contract to provide support services to the U.S. Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence for infantry and armor training.
United Press International reports Booz Allen, which already offers support services at Fort Benning, Georgia, will now provide capability development and support as well as training instruction.
"Fort Benning is a critical location for the U.S. Army, and will be for the foreseeable future," Keith Catanzano, Booz Allen's vice president, said in a statement. "This contract will support a vital U.S. Army training facility by deploying infrastructure and supporting services as Fort Benning and the Maneuver Center of Excellence continue to grow and serve more and more warfighters."
The contract, which includes work to be done by other companies, is valued at $458 with a one-year base period and four additional one-year options, the news source said.
Booz Allen may increase its workforce by adding new defense and intelligence jobs as a result of winning the contract. These positions typically require professionals who have obtained security clearance, as these individuals can generally access top secret information.
