Engility signs support contract with JPEO-CBD

Engility Holdings, a Chantilly, Virginia-based U.S. government services company, recently announced that it has signed a contract to provide support to the U.S. Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense.

The company will provide support in four areas of an indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity multiple recipient award, including logistics, information technology, business and analytical assistance, and engineering and tactical support. The overall contract covers six domains, UPI reports.

"The JPEO-CBD continues to be an important partner for Engility and we are honored to be chosen for this award," Tony Smeraglinolo, Engility's president and CEO, said, according to UPI. "This selection recognizes the history of Engility's past success supporting such a critical mission area and we look forward to the opportunity to expand our support across the Department of Defense Chem-Bio community in the future."

The contract is a part of the JPEO-CBD's ongoing requirement for Omnibus Program, Engineering and Technical Support services. The potential overall contract value for all awardees is $495 million if all options are exercised, UPI reports.

Engility did not disclose how many other companies received the contract, but a report earlier this month disclosed that 70 contracts were awarded to 43 companies. Multiple contractors won awards in multiple domains, Washington Technology reports.
