Q2 2024 Industry Update


Precision Talent Solutions (PTS) has established itself as a valued partner for public sector contractors, not just through our successes in executive placement but also with our unique insight.  Our team consists of industry veterans with extensive knowledge of the government contracting (GovCon) landscape. This allows us to provide customers and candidates with market intelligence and exclusive perspectives.  As we reach the midpoint of 2024, PTS is excited to share our Q2 Industry Update, summarizing activity within major programs and areas of operation, contract awards, M&A, and larger trends that impact your business and ours.

UKRAINE – As of June 30th, the Russia-Ukraine conflict has been ongoing for 857 days. PTS continues to monitor Ukraine funding for US and European Government Agencies and provides periodic updates to our customers and partners delivering support in Ukraine. According to the Council on Foreign Relations’ report from May 2024, the U.S. Congress has passed five bills allocating $175 billion in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Discussions are underway to allow the deployment of American defense contractors to support fleet maintenance, training, and other technical and advisory services on sites in Ukraine. In June, Ukraine’s state-owned defense conglomerate Ukroboronprom and Amentum signed a Memorandum of Intent (MOI) to establish a joint venture. Rheinmetall is investing heavily in Ukraine, setting up joint production facilities for armored vehicles, ammunition, and air defense systems.

Specific Ukraine-related contracts awarded in Q2 include TetraTech receiving the $438 million Securing Power, Advancing Resilience & Connectivity (SPARC) contract. USAID seeks proposals for the Revenue and Expenditure Governance Reforms Operationalized (RevGRO) contract. The roughly $48 million contract proposals are due August 2nd, 2024. USAID also seeks a security partner to implement the Ukraine Partner Liaison Security Operation (PLSO) contract, with proposals due July 22nd, 2024. The winner will have to be recused from all other security work in Ukraine. USAID announced that it is allocating $500 million in new funding for energy assistance and redirecting $324 million in previously announced funds toward emergency energy needs in Ukraine. This funding will be used to repair energy infrastructure damaged in the war, expand power generation, and protect energy infrastructure. The State Department plans to provide an additional $300 million in Ukrainian civilian security assistance to support life-saving equipment for Ukrainian border guards and law enforcement. While the future of Ukraine remains uncertain, it is clear there will be a need for increased support. PTS is supporting customers in Ukraine with management and technical talent, specifically around USAID and Maintenance, Repair, & Overhaul (MRO) programs. We are also building pipelines for both local and expat engineers, project managers, construction, health & safety, and other high-demand categories to support expected demand.

THE MIDDLE EAST–Since the eruption of conflict between Israel and Hamas on October 7, 2023, tensions in the Middle East have intensified, affecting several countries in a region striving for stability. The United States responded by enacting legislative measures to provide significant military aid to Israel, totaling over $12.5 billion. This aid package includes $3.8 billion from a bill passed in March 2024 and an additional $8.7 billion from a supplemental appropriations act approved in April 2024. For context, this amount surpasses any annual military aid provided in any year since the Camp David Accords of 1978 generated the Egypt-Israel peace treaty in 1979.  Approximately 25% of this aid comes in the form of Foreign Military Financing (FMF) grants to acquire U.S. military equipment and services.  PTS is closely monitoring FMS acquisitions and substantial sustainment requirements in the Middle East to best support our clients operating in the region.


Below is a synopsis of the major programs by agency and contracts that drive our industry.


LOGCAP V— We are currently midway through a 10-year LOGCAP V contract that was originally awarded in April 2019. The Army Support Command (ASC) is facing a critical decision on whether to recompete all of the performance task orders, referred to as LOGCAP 5.5, or to proceed with the procurement process of LOGCAP VI. If the USG chooses 5.5, it will lead to a significant amount of bid & proposal activity and could potentially change the current COCOM distribution (with KBR handling EUCOM/NORTHCOM, Fluor working with AFRICOM, Amentum handling SOUTHCOM, and V2X managing CENTCOM/INDOPACOM).

Last year, ASC solicited Task Orders to the LOGCAP V primes to integrate the Army Prepositioned Stocks (APS) into LOGCAP instead of the EAGLE contracting vehicle. This represented a significant shift in the Army Logistics contracting landscape, and awards were announced, with KBR winning APS-2 (EUCOM - $306m) and Amentum winning the remaining task orders (Kuwait - $128m, Korea/Japan - $63m, and South Carolina + afloat - $72m). In June, several bid protests were filed regarding the APS task orders. The protests raise concerns about how technical and management proposals were evaluated, the weighing of past performance records, and the Army’s best value tradeoff decisions. The resolution of this protest will determine the shape of this large Army program.

So far, KBR and V2X have been the largest recipients of LOGCAP V obligations since the award in 2019. According to GovTribe data, KBR has received $4.6 billion, while V2X has received $3.2 billion. LOGCAP V will continue through 2030 and has an $82 billion ceiling. PTS has extensive knowledge of the LOGCAP talent needs and broad reach across the industry for PMOs, PMs, Shared Services, and technical talent.

USACE awarded Conti Federal Services a $65.8 million contract for the construction of Secure Annexes in Baumholder. These annexes will provide operational facilities for the relocation of US Special Operations Forces (SOF) Command units to Smith Barracks at US Army Garrison Baumholder, Germany. The new facilities will assist in the planning and execution of SOF operations in EUCOM and AFRICOM.

The U.S. Army Regional Cyber Center in Europe (RCC-E) awarded SOSi and Peraton a contract to support RCC-E with monitoring, operating, maintaining, and defending the vital components of the Department of Defense Information Network (DoDIN) within the United States Army Europe-Africa (USAREUR-AF) AOR.

Army Contracting Command awarded Amentum a $44 million contract to establish and start two new regional logistics hubs in Iraq. Additionally, Amentum received a $58.6 million modification for maintenance, supply, and transportation logistics support services in Kuwait. The same command also awarded AM General an $11 million modification to its Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), initially awarded in 2023 as a $221 million 5-year (plus 5-year option) contract to manufacture an estimated 20,000 vehicles and approximately 10,000 trailers, integrating technology enhancements for delivery to the US Army. PTS continues to provide its clients with talent for Army programs, offering cleared IT networking support, senior logistics roles, and tactical vehicle technicians.


On May 29th, 9 companies secured spots on a $4 billion DTRA 10yr IDIQ Contract for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (C-WMD) R&D, with work to be divided into three mission pools, including (Pool 1) artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science and software development; (Pool 2) operations and countermeasures in a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear environment; and (Pool 3) targeting, information operations and irregular warfare. Congrats to ARA, Booz Allen Hamilton, Leidos, Peraton, SRC, Two Six Technologies, Noblis, Parsons, and Signalscape. PTS offers a strong talent pool to continue supporting DTRA’s mission.


NAVFAC Pacific awarded in April a combined $2B Global Contingency Services (GCS) IDIQ contract (the Navy’s version of LOGCAP) to V2X, KBR, IAP-ECC, Fluor, Amentum, and AECOM-ASO JV. These six contractors will compete for task orders to provide short-term facility support services in response to natural disasters, humanitarian efforts, military actions, or potential service interruptions at various locations, including remote areas around the world. The term of the contract is not to exceed 102 months, with an expected completion date of September 2032.

On April 18th, the Navy’s Naval Facilities Engineering Command released the RFP for the provision of Base Operations Support (BOS) Services at the Diego Garcia, British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT). Proposals are due by July 31, 2024. The procurement is underway for the Navy Djibouti Base Operations Support (BOS) Services Contract at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, Africa, to support 4,000 military personnel with a full range of base support services. Responses are due by July 24, 2024. On April 8th, NAVFAC collected capabilities statements from companies interested in providing BOS services at U.S. Naval Air Station Sigonella and its outlying activities in Sicily, Italy. It intends to award a single-award IDIQ contract for general management, facility support, custodial services, integrated solid waste management, grounds maintenance, utilities management, transportation services, and environmental services. The contract is expected to have one base year and up to eight one-year option periods for a total potential term of 102 months. The RFP is expected to be released in Q3 2024. PTS consistently delivers key personnel and subject matter experts (SMEs) to prime contractors, bolstering their bid and proposal teams and optimizing operations.

V2X landed a $88 million contract expanding Navy IT and communications support in the Pacific region to support the operation and maintenance of Navy communication, electronic, and computer systems at the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Pacific (NCTAMS PAC). NCTAMS serves as the principal Navy hub for communications in the Pacific and provides crucial command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence support the U.S. and allied forces across the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

The Navy extended the $1.9 billion Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific (NIWC PAC) cyberspace science, research, engineering, and technology integration IDIQ to original awardees, including BAE Systems, BAH, ICF, Leidos, Peraton, Parsons, SAIC, and SRC. PAE/Amentum was awarded a $33 million modification to a previously awarded contract for base operation support services at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan. This award brings the total cumulative value of the contract to $123 million. In Q2, a notable award was granted by the Naval Sea Systems Command – a multiple-award contract worth up to $982 million - to 49 industry partners. This contract is aimed at supporting current and future unmanned surface vehicles, marking a significant development in the sector. AECOM has been awarded a $98 million IDIQ contract modification for environmental services in INDOPACOM. On June 26th, NAVFAC released an RFP for a Pacific Deterrence Initiative Multiple Award Construction Contract (PDI MACC) to support various design-build and design-bid-build construction projects across INDOPACOM. This substantial procurement is expected to result in 3 awards with a ceiling of $15 billion over 8 years.

Six 8(a) companies - Chugach, Copper River Infrastructure Services, Decisivelnstincts, DES, Nakupuna, and Spectrum Solutions - secured a $404 million IDIQ contract on May 7th to modernize telecommunication and network infrastructure across Marine Corps bases worldwide. It includes options that could increase its total value to $809 million over 10 years. The award underscores the importance of leveraging small business capabilities in critical defense projects. PTS recognizes the significance of acquiring the right talent for IDIQs, whether for large or small contractors and implements unique processes to help the primes to optimize the IDIQ PMO structure.


AFCAP V-The U.S. Air Force announced the AFCAP’s ceiling increase from $6.4B to $15B on April 29th to support expanding contingency planning, deployment, training, and equipping of forces; emergency and contingency construction; and other services. The original contract was awarded in April 2020 to 8 companies, including URS, DynCorp, PAE-Perini (now all Amentum), ECC, Fluor, KBR, RMS, and V2X.

In April, Fluor was awarded a $40M AFCAP V task order for pavement and transportation support at Tinian. In addition to Guam and Saipan, Tinian is one of the three principal islands of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, a territory of the United States in the western Pacific Ocean 3,700 miles west of Hawaii. Flour continues to deliver support at Ali Al Salem AB in Kuwait and completed WMR fuel support equipment, and ADR supplies tasks at Tyndall AFB in FL and operation and support services tasks at Holloman AFB in New Mexico.

Amentum has been the largest recipient of AFCAP V obligations since the award in 2020 with 11 task order awards, including delivering transient aircraft services in multiple locations across Southwest Asia, providing design, engineering support services, and mission support services at Al Dhafra AB in UAE, engineering support services at Ali Al Salem AB in Kuwait, materials to augment Tyndall AFB’s training and education missions, design and engineering services at Muwaffaq-Salti AB in Jordan, base operations support at Thumrait AB and Al Mussanah AB in Oman, supporting Typhoon Mawar recovery efforts and Operation Allies Welcome to assist refugee resettlement efforts at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, and delivering installation support and sustainment services to the 724th expeditionary AIB Squadron in Agadez, Niger.

To date, V2X has been awarded 15 task orders, which account for 10.4% of all obligated AFCAP V contract dollars.

The 700th Contracting and 86th Civil Engineer squadrons held an industry week in May to outline future requirements and further understand industry capabilities. This comes in advance of the Kaiserslautern Installation Support Services (KISS) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) designed to address the need for a full range of service requirements, including facility, property, equipment, housing, and ground maintenance. An award is expected this quarter. PTS has supported many EUCOM-focused firms in the K-Town area with PMO, IT, and technical talent.


DLA remains actively engaged in its extensive acquisition processes, particularly focusing on its OCONUS supply programs. On April 4th, DLA issued an RFI for full-service food support to military and authorized land customers in Southern Europe, along with Navy ship customers in Northern/Southern Europe and Northern/Western Africa. Responses were due on April 16th. The RFP for DLA SPV operations in Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, and Syria closed on June 16, 2024. The DLA SPV West Africa RFP faces a delay due to ongoing market research and validation of customer requirements, specifically in Niger. Looking ahead, attention is turning towards future opportunities with DLA SPV Europe and DLA Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) Europe & Africa. PTS brings extensive experience with various DLA programs and a robust talent network.

DLA awarded $180 million in facility MRO contracts to ASRC Federal and SupplyCore. These contracts are aimed at providing support to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. ASRC Federal will be responsible for performing work in Hawaii, Guam, and the Kwajalein Atoll, while SupplyCore will be supporting customer sites in Texas and Louisiana.
