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

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.
