AECOM completes transition on US$3.6 billion contract to provide U.S. Air Force with range support services

LOS ANGELES (Oct. 26, 2017) — AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, announced today that URS Federal Services Inc. (an AECOM company) has completed the transition phase for the 16-year contract for the U.S. Air Force to provide range support services. After a delayed start due to a protest of the award, transition was completed on October 24, 2017.

The US$3.6 billion contract will be delivered by AECOM’s Management Services business, includes award fee provisions, and was previously included in AECOM’s backlog for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017.

“As a proven leader in the range services market, we look forward to continuing and strengthening our partnership with the U.S. Air Force to provide mission-critical support,” said John Vollmer, AECOM’s group president, Management Services. “Following our deliberate investments over the past two years to position our Management Services business for growth, this contract supports our substantial backlog growth in fiscal 2017. As a result of our expanded capabilities and focused business development efforts, we continue to pursue a sizable pipeline of pursuits, including larger projects and prime contracting roles.”

AECOM will provide critical mission and target management support for testing, tactics development, advanced training, and Air Force and Joint urgent operational needs missions at multiple locations in Nevada and California to include the Nevada Test and Training Range, Leach Lake Training Range, and Nellis and Creech Air Force Bases.
