On Dec. 15, the Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, awarded DynCorp International (DI) a task order to provide UH-60 Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) under the Worldwide Logistics Support Services – Contractor Logistics Support (WLSS-C) multiple award IDIQ. This task order, valued at $554.1 million if all options are exercised, consists of a six-year period of performance which includes three months for mobilization, five years of CLS performance with one base year and four option years, and three months for demobilization with a six-month option to extend services.
