Fluor Corporation FLR announced today that the U.S. Army has selected Fluor as the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) IV contractor to provide regional forward planning support for Africa Command (AFRICOM), to include the countries within Africa, the African Union and African regional security organizations, and Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), to include Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

“From the work we do through our commercial Energy & Chemicals and Mining business lines to our work serving the U.S. Government, Fluor has extensive experience in Africa and the Americas,” said Bruce Stanski, president of Fluor’s Government Group. “Regionally aligning LOGCAP IV will provide an improved rapid response capability for contingency operations and increase mission efficiencies. We look forward to planning alongside AFRICOM and SOUTHCOM to meet their logistics and life support services requirements.”

This is part of a new approach by the U.S. Army to align the current LOGCAP IV contractors with the six Department of Defense Geographic Combatant Commands (GCC) that are responsible for effective command and control of U.S. military forces in peace and war.

As one of three contractors selected to work on the LOGCAP IV indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract, Fluor will support future requirements for LOGCAP services in the AFRICOM and SOUTHCOM areas of responsibility. As a result of today’s announcement, Fluor will assign a LOGCAP planner to the AFRICOM headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany, and the SOUTHCOM headquarters in Miami, Fla. These planners will provide information and assist with the integration of LOGCAP services by leveraging the expertise of LOGCAP contractors in multifunctional logistics support. This will ensure the highest quality in the delivery of LOGCAP services for the respective Combatant Commands.

Established by the U.S. Army to fulfill the Department of Defense's global mission during contingency events, LOGCAP provides the military with additional capabilities to support the logistics requirements of its deployed forces rapidly through use of civilian contractors.

Fluor provides the U.S. Government logistics and life support services in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, Jordan and the Philippines; military construction around the world; disaster relief and recovery services throughout the United States; and nuclear decommissioning and operations at government-owned sites.

    I am very pleased to hear you have won this contract, I have never worked for your company but I did work for KBR for six years. I have since then worked another five years in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq. Most of my work has been in Logistic, I would love to have a chance to be interviewed for any opening in this area you have coming. With my expertise and experience of working overseas for eleven years and keeping safety first I believe I am a valuable employee.
