DoD awards KBRwyle seat on $900M JT&E contract

Houston, TX-based KBR, Inc. announced on June 18 that its global government services business, KBRwyle, has secured a seat on a $900 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide rapid solutions to fix problems identified through the Department of Defense’s Joint Test and Evaluation (JT&E) Program.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineering Research and Development Center selected KBRwyle as one of the six prime contractors on this 10-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract. KBRwyle won a seat on the previous JT&E Program contract in 2007.  KBRwyle will assist the program in finding new ways for U.S. warfighters to accomplish their missions with today’s equipment and processes.

Under the multi-award contract, KBRwyle will have the opportunity to bid on task orders issued by the JT&E Program Offices to address and resolve critical warfighter issues. Utilizing its recognized systems engineering and test and evaluation expertise, KBRwyle’s support will include test and evaluation, specialized engineering, cybersecurity, and intelligence.

“We are honored to be selected as a prime on this contract again and take seriously the confidence exhibited by the DoD in choosing us to continue on this important program,” said Byron Bright, president, KBR Government Services U.S. “We will continue to work with the JT&E Program Office to develop rapid and effective solutions to complex warfighter issues with professionalism, rigor and innovation.”

The JT&E Program brings multiple military services together to improve the joint interoperability of systems, technical and operational concepts, and system performance, and enhance the validation of testing methodologies, models, simulations, and test beds. The program also develops new tactics, techniques, and procedures and rigorously measures the extent to which their use improves operational outcomes.
