Vectrus loses KBOSSS contract to KBR-Triple Canopy
KBR-Triple Canopy LLC will perform work through Sept. 29, 2017, the Defense Department said Thursday.
The Army received five bids for the contract via the internet and used its fiscal 2016 operations and maintenance funds to cover the full obligated amount.
A FedBizOpps award notice posted Thursday said the Kuwait Base Operations and Security Support Services 2.0 contract’s first year includes a four-month phase-in period that starts Sept. 30, 2016 with an eight-month base term between January 30, 2017 and Sept. 29, 2017.
Four one-year option periods are available after the base period and the Army will determine those awards on an individual basis, while the fourth option year will include eight months of contractor execution and a four-month phase-out period if exercised.
The Army also has an option to extend services for another six months after the fourth year if needed.
(UPDATE — 10:24 a.m. Eastern time September 30): Vectrus (NYSE: VEC) disclosed Thursday its proposal for K-BOSSS 2.0 was not selected and the company’s services as incumbent contractor under the predecessor K-BOSSS contract are scheduled to run through Dec. 28, 2016.
----Yes, we received the news last week, and yesterday we were told to provide our email addresses and some info to KBR if we want to continue on with their company not to mention Vectrus did lose their APS 5 contract to AECOM but there are some problems with that award which gives them more time but for KBOSSS folks we are officially O V E R. For Americans it might not be so bad but for the foreign nationals working now I don't know. If anyone is familiar with KBR they know that the company has a thing for hiring Eastern Europeans from Bosnia ans Macedonia. Times are a changing and boy are we in for new experiences soon.
