LOGCAP IV for Dummies (Updated 05-27-2010)

LOGCAP IV for dummies(Last updated Feb 27, 2010) By now everyone  knows the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program IV (LOGCAP IV) has been split up and three primary contractors have been approved to submit bid proposals for the individual task orders.  The three companies are Fluor, Dyncorp and KBR. I know…old news. But I keep getting asked who has been awarded which task orders. Especially the task orders Dyncorp has been awarded, after the PWC/Agility FUBAR came to light. I figured I could just “google it” get an easy answer and that would be it. Boy was I wrong. The more I read the more confused I got.

I decided to share what I’ve learned. (If you are a LOGCAP contract expert and find I’m in error, please contact me so I can correct it.) Not only are there three companies who have been approved to submit proposals, each company has their own LOGCAP IV contract number. Evidently task order numbers are assigned the next consecutive number under the winning companies contract after they have been awarded. That’s where I got confused, duplicate task order numbers and multiple contract numbers. Unlike LOGCAP III, one company, one contract number. There is also a fourth LOGCAP contractor, SERCO who has been awarded a LOGCAP IV contract for analysis, planning and logistics support.  From what I’m told this is primarily administrative.

Dyncorp – Contract # W52P1J-07-D-0007 Dyncorp International is teamed with CH2M Hill for LOGCAP IV. Agility Defense and Government Services (formerly PWC Logistics) was initially a part of this team but was indicted on fraud charges and suspended from Government contracting pending investigations.  (click HERE for more info)

  • Task Order 1 – Program Management Office Staffing – $1.7M
  • Task Order 2 – Services in support of Kuwait Area of Operations – $77M for a transition period and one year at full performance. Up to four option years may also be awarded at the discretion of the government.
  • Task Order 3 – Support of Udairi Airfield Kuwait – $20.8M for a transition period and one year at full performance. Up to four option years may also be awarded at the discretion of the government.
  • Task Order 4 – Logistics support for the Afghanistan-South Area of Responsibility – $643.5M for the one-year base plus four one year options with a total evaluated value of $5.874 billion.

Fluor – Contract # W52P1J-07-D-0008 Fluor is teamed with ITT for LOGCAP IV.

  • Task Order 1 – Program Management Office Staffing – $331K
  • Task Order 2 – Services in support for Afghanistan Area of Operations (AOR) Expansion – $68.9M for the period of performance one-year with four unpriced option years.
  • Task Order 3 – Services in support of Test, Measurement, and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) Kuwait- $4.5M for a transition period and one full year at at full performance. Up to four option years may also be awarded at the discretion of the government.
  • Task Order 4 – Services in support of the Afghanistan South Expansion – $247M for the period of performance one-year with four unpriced option years.
  • Task Order 5 – Logistics support for the Afghanistan North Area of Responsibility (AOR) – $634.2M for the one-year base plus four one year options with a total evaluated value of $7 billion.
  • Task Order 6 – Logistics support of the U.S. military’s humanitarian relief operations in Haiti.  The initial value of the task order is $50,000, with a performance period of 30 days. However, both the value and the performance period of the task order can be expanded as the need for services provided under LOGCAP expands.

KBR – Contract # W52P1J-07-D-0009

  • Task Order 1 – Program Management Office Staffing – $852K
  • Task Order 2 – CTP – Corps Logistics Support Services (CLSS), Theater Transportation Mission (TTM), Postal Services, Ice Plant Operations, and some Air Terminal Operations to support the U.S. armed forces throughout Iraq – $2.345B.
  • Task Order 3 – Support U.S. Army and Navy missions at five sites in Bahrain. The Period of Performance is one base year plus one option year and is valued at approximately $28M.

SERCO – Contract # W52P1J07D0010 – Services in support of analysis, planning support and logistics – $45 M for the one base year with four option years with a total evaluated value of $225M.

Forseti recently published a post about KBR and LOGCAP IV task orders HERE. According to internet sources yet to be confirmed, there are a total of 11 task orders for LOGCAP IV. Seven of which have been awarded so far, not to include Task Order 1 for each contract, that’s administrative. That means there are still four task orders to be awarded, most likely for Iraq.

I believe there is only one LOGCAP IV task order up for grabs right now and that’s the Corp Logistics Support, Transportation and Postal(CTP) task order in Iraq. It’s similar to the current Theater Transportation Mission (TTM) task order currently in place. With Dyncorp teamed with Agility and with Agility currently suspended from any future contracts, I’d say Dyncorp is out. KBR could get it, but but I doubt it. I think the DoD wants to shy away from anymore bad KBR press. I think Fluor will get it, call it woman’s intuition.

Keep in mind KBR is still deeply entrenched in Afghanistan working under LOGCAP III. As Fluor and Dyncorp transition the camps and Forward Operating Bases KBR should be phased out. I don’t know if they will ever be completely out of Afghanistan. They aren’t going to go willingly.

    I spent two months with Fluor in FOB shank on Task order 2 as a work control supervisor. This company likes to sing it’s own praises but is the most unprofessional company I ever worked for. They are signing to say they are maintaining assets when they have no idea where half of them are. I hope uncle Sam catches up with this bunch and nails them

    • Comment by Go Flour Go!:

      2 Months! I’m suprised you lasted that long! KBR (Keep Bringing Retards). I pray Fluor comes to Iraq with the Logcap 4 O&M Contract and sends home Hundreds of KBR employees with Fake Credentials working in the Trades, Most of the worst liars are in Management.

      • Comment by Ms Sparky:

        It’s like this. Family is the only one who can insult family. If you haven’t worked for KBR and YOU HAVEN’T you have not earned the right to insult!! That is the same level of arrogance that will sink Fluor. Fluor, of whom is sucking up KBR reject managers like there’s no tomorrow. The only bright spot in the whole KBR contract is the boots on the ground workers. They were able to get at least some of the work done in spite of KBR management.

            You damn right there are and if those empire building incompetent managers would get the hell out of their way and let them do their jobs I probably wouldn’t even have anything to blog about. I’d just be another one of those “butterflies and rainbows” bloggers!

          • Comment by Robert:

            I must say g-dog, for one who hated their job so much you sure stayed with it. I say it is people like yourself who give KBR its bad name. How many people did you come in contact with and project such a negative attitude. You show your intellegence in your email regaring such things like ‘No Overtime’ and ‘No Bonus’ all of which are part of the actual LOGCAP Contract, ie. part of your uplift was a bonus!

            • Comment by Wencx:

              I am one proud former employee of KBR who worked tirelessly in USD North for 4 years. I must say that I truly miss the company, we had nice mgt and with 36 excellence consercutively, no complains but agin proud of being part of the history, now I am working for DynCorp and I can’t wait for a chance to go back.

          Good catch!!

        • Comment by Gergio:

          Fluor It’s the same shit as KBR because all higher position in the managment been hold by former KBR mafia.Don’t forget that. If you have any doubt on that just check the website LinkedIn there you are going to see the previous and present position for all those guys. I am telling all this as a former KBR(10 years) DynCorp ( 1 year) and in the present time Fluor rejected job offer candidate.LOL.

      • Comment by Gorco:

        :) You’ve got it wrong, KBR is short for “Keep the Bullshit Rolling” which got stuck to the company during the LOGCAP 2.

      • Comment by pat:

        I work for KBR and know we can provide a much better service than FLuor and Dynacorp. They are hiring everyone they can from KBR mainly those that were weeded out for stupid offenses such as possesing porn or alcohol or drugs. You know the military is so messed up they have to rely on these subcontractor to provide these services. The military is so bogged down in stupid regulations and paperwork nothing gets done. I personnaly was called to hooch for emergency electrical because the lazy ass soldier wanted to play his xbox. They do not do their own laundry, prepare their own food, provide their own water, provide their own electricity they do not even clean their own latrines. The liberal thinking minds of the government of the U.S. would rather give free money to welfare type projects and unemployment then to spend on military and building a good defense. One day soon we are going to need personnel and you’ll see a draft be out in place because we are turning people away at the recruiters and telling them to go on the dole of welfare and food stamps. Do you understand what is ahead of us. Do you understand the Muslim world is on a mission to destroy us and the world. They have no respect for women so do you think they really listen and take seriously a lying liberal secretary of state thats a woman. China, russia and middle east countries aare just biding their time as the U.S. self emplodes, and worries more about the rights of gays and illigal aliegns than defense of their own country.

          As stated by “Pat”: “I personnaly was called to hooch for emergency electrical because the lazy ass soldier wanted to play his xbox. They do not do their own laundry, prepare their own food, provide their own water, provide their own electricity they do not even clean their own latrines.”

          I’m a retired 20 year vet “Pat” and have boots on ground experience in various locations. Now I’m a civilian about to do a LOGCAP IV deployment myself.

          I have been all over the Internet researching these jobs and contracts, and you know what I continuously see over and over again? You. Different name, different website, different forum – same piece of shit whiner. Every day, you civilian whining bitches embarrass me more and more and more. You pukes are why I put a uniform on? Really?

          Here’s the deal about that “Lazy Ass Soldier” as you call him. He’s puts his life on the line more times in his four year single term than 98% of the people back in the states will EVER do in their entire LIVES. And he does it for a sum that is paltry.

          So when bitches like you wander around the FOB, making as much money in 3 months as it takes them an ENTIRE year to make, YOUR DAMN RIGHT YOU’RE EXPECTED TO MAKE IT WORTH THEIR WHILE.

          If I was still in uniform and I had the good fortune to meet you in the FOB I would say exactly this:

          You are GOING to come to my POD and fix my electricity so I can enjoy my time off. You are GOING to do it with a FUCKING SMILE, you are GOING to say THANK YOU, and if I have some baby wipes I might LET you have the HONOR of wiping my ASS while your at it.

          Now, shut the fuck up you embarrassing piece of shit. You signed a contract. You get paid more than ANY foot soldier at ANY rank surrounding you in country, and you have the AUDACITY to complain?

          YOU DON’T HAVE A FOOT TO STAND ON. FUCK OFF OR QUIT – BITCH.

            Thank you for your comments, as an ex military man i agree you hit every point. I am waiting for orders to go and I will thank every soldier I see because they deserve it.

    Here is a great link sent to me about these and other contracts from our friends at The Project On Government Oversight (POGO.org) http://www.pogo.org/

    http://www.ffata.org/ffata/

    The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA) was signed on September 26, 2006. The intent is to empower every American with the ability to hold the government accountable for each spending decision. The end result is to reduce wasteful spending in the government. The FFATA legislation requires information on federal awards (federal financial assistance and expenditures) be made available to the public via a single, searchable website. Federal awards include grants, subgrants, loans, awards, cooperative agreements and other forms of financial assistance as well as contracts, subcontracts, purchase orders, task orders, and delivery orders. The legislation does not require inclusion of individual transactions below $25,000 or credit card transactions before October 1, 2008.

  3. Comment by Charles M. Smith:

    Let me add to the confusion. In addition to the three contracts for contractors supporting operations, there is a fourth contract; the LOGCAP Support Contract.

    LOGCAP was designed to include a strong planning function to support the Army, especially the Combatant Commanders. LOGCAP would prepare a World-Wide Support Plan, along with specific regional support plans. These would be developed with the Combatant Commander’s OP Plans for anticipated possible operations in their area.

    When I developed the LOGCAP IV strategy, to include competition for operation support among three contractors, we spent a bit of time considering how the planning function would be done. We decided a fourth contractor, who would not do any operations, would develop plans that each of the operational contractors could perform.

    I anticipated that we would obtain the services of a strong contractor such as SAIC or Booz Allen. However, the Army had already hired, on a sole source basis, a contractor named RCI to perform some support functions. They were bought by SERCO, a British company. Evidently the word was out that SERCO would win the support contract so contractors like SAIC and Booz Allen teamed with SERCO, instead of competing. SERCO now has the support contract, W52P1J-07-D-0010. Only one firm competed and they were not up to the SERCO team proposal.

    Also, contrary to my plan this contract uses SERCO to provide financial analysis of the operational contractors proposals, instead of DCAA. I consider this an inherently Governmental function. The main result is that DynCorp’s Task Order 2 now has a significant Request for Equitable Adjustment (REA) from the contractor asking for more money.

    The Commission on Wartime Contracting has asked the Army to explain why they do not use DCAA and have not received an adequate answer.

    I fear that the Army will repeat the mistakes of LOGCAP III on LOGCAP IV because they have not done a real Lessons Learned on LOGCAP III.

    • Comment by Ms Sparky:

      I saw the SERCO company name as I was researching. I wasn’t quit sure what that was all about because I hadn’t heard of them before. (I guess the Army forgot to call me and fill me in :) ) Thank you. I will update the post.

      As always you contributions to MsSparky.com are an invaluable resource to our readers. If you ever want to “guest post” let me know.

  13. Comment by pat:

    Can someone tell me how the U.S. Government allows KBR, Fluor,Dyncorp…etc to use foreign nationals. We have 11,000,000 million unemployed workers in the sates and these companies paid by the U.S. tax dollar are allowed to hire foreign nationals. Not just a few either, a very high percentage 40 or better. So Amercians are basically paying these foreign workers as well as welfare and unemployment, now you see why it won’t be long for the U.S. to bankrupt.

    • Comment by Ms Sparky:

      Yes. You are correct. Hiring 100′s of thousands of foreign nationals to do jobs US citizens not only could do but should do on US installations is one of my biggest pet peeves. US tax dollars should go to US citizens first. Allowing these companies to hire foreign nationals also encourages human trafficking on a scale that should appall US taxpayers.

      • Comment by spongebob:

        because they are cheap

        • Comment by sail:

          This has been a consistent problem for at least the last 8 years. Not only do they allow them to hire TCN’s in 2003 the Goverment DIRECTED that with the exception of positions that required security clearance and a select list of other position all positions would be filled by TCN’s as a cost saving measure.

          Typically, TCN’s are paid 60% or less of what a Western Expat would make based on the average salaries in their country of origin.

          PO’d me at the time and PO’s me even more today – since it is my tax dollars and based on the state of the US Economy and employment.
