The Army has delayed the award date multiple times, but one can hope it is to ensure the contract is granted to companies that will faithfully execute it.

In 1985, LOGCAP was established primarily to preplan for contingencies and to leverage the existing civilian resources. However, it was not until three years later before it was first used. In support of a United States Third Army mission, the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) used LOGCAP to contract for the construction and maintenance of two petroleum pipelines systems in Southwest Asia.

For 28 years now LOGCAP has successfully supported the Army and DoD by augmenting the Commander’s logistics capability with commercial service providers to offset Combat Service Support (CSS) shortfalls. This program has successfully executed rapid, small-scale contingency support to PACOM, AFRICOM, and CENTCOM, and has, additionally, successfully managed and executed multi-billion dollar, major, long-term operations for CENTCOM.

KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, has received criticism for being what many consider a "shoe in" for government contracts because of connections to former Vice President Dick Cheney, who was CEO of Halliburton until 2000.

However, political connections aside, there seem to be an abundance of construction companies lately that have played fast and loose with the rules of their government contracts.

KBR Inc. took a hit in an ongoing False Claims Act suit from the federal government Thursday when a Texas federal judge ordered the company to hand over an internal investigation report on alleged kickbacks at the center of the case on the grounds it had waived attorney-client privilege of the document.

Obliging the government’s midtrial request to compel the report, U.S. District Judge Marcia A. Crone ruled shortly before closing arguments in the case that protection for the report had been waived nine years before when one KBR employee transmitted it to another, an attorney for KBR confirmed to Law360 in an interview.

For the past five years, Camp Atterbury has been home to the Individual Readiness Deployment Operation Program, processing over 400 contractors a week since 2010. This past week Camp Atterbury and the IRDO staff received its final flight of civilian contractors for the redeployment process.

Camp Atterbury, located in Edinburgh, Indiana, began as a mobilization platform in 1941 with the purchase by the Army of over 700 family farms and five rural communities in Central Indiana. Atterbury rose from the once-fertile farmland to prepare troops for service in World War II. Divisions and units from across the country, all of them with specialties ranging from artillery to engineering to tank battalions and chemical companies, arrived at Atterbury for basic and advanced training that would prepare them for service overseas.

Supreme Court of the United States (“Supreme Court”) denied Kellogg Brown & Root, Inc.’s (“KBR“) fight to recover $41 million in disallowed subcontractor costs incurred in performance of dining services in Iraq, bringing an end to KBR‘s longrunning claim litigation.

Of significance for other contractors, the Supreme Court’s denial leaves intact the decision by the Federal Circuit, Kellogg Brown & Root Servs., Inc. v. United States, opinion corrected on denial of reh’g, 563 F. App’x 769 (Fed. Cir. 2014) and cert. denied, 13-1558, 2014 WL 2919328 (U.S. Oct. 6, 2014) (KBR I), wherein the Federal Circuit discussed at length the significant regulatory discretion invested in the Government when assessing cost reasonableness. KBR I has caused a great deal of concern in the contracting community because it undermines contractors’ real-time business judgments about cost reasonableness.

It was awarded to contractor KBR, inc. which remains entangled in dozens of lawsuits over its performance and faces what company lawyers characterize as an unprecedented level of Pentagon audit scrutiny.
