$11.3M to Improve Djibouti Base
21-Apr-2009 13:36 EDT
Djibouti is an important base for western navies, the French Foreign
Legion, and the US Marines. It sits in a very strategic location, at the
entrance to the Red Sea and astride the passage from the Indian Ocean to
the Suez Canal.
Growing pirate troubles to the southeast, around the area that used to
be Somalia, have magnified Djibouti's importance.
URS-IAP, LLC in Austin, TX recently received $11.3 million for a cost
reimbursement task order under a billion-dollar multiple-award
construction contract (N62470-06-D-6009, #0012) issued in August 2006 by
the US Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Atlantic in Norfolk, VA.
The joint venture between IAP Worldwide Services and San Francisco based
engineering design firm URS Corp. will design and build a 2,150 square
meter aircraft maintenance hangar and a 340 square meter
telecommunications facility at Camp Lemonier, Djibouti, by November
2010. All 3 awardees under this multiple-award contract bid for this
