ABM Secures Government Contracts In Iraq And Qatar

ABM (NYSE:ABM), a leading provider of Integrated Facility Solutions, today announced that ABM Government Services (formerly Linc Government Services) has been awarded two separate task orders by the United States Government under the $9.7 billion Defense Language Interpreting and Translation Enterprise (DLITE) contract.

In 2011, as the demand for foreign language services began to exceed the Armed Forces’ ability to deliver them through its military-trained linguists, the United States Department of Defense (DOD) selected six contractors to compete for task orders under the five-year DLITE contract to meet the growing demand. Under the DLITE program, ABM has the opportunity to provide translation, interpretation and related language services to U.S. service personnel engaged in humanitarian, peacekeeping, contingency and combat operations around the globe.

On January 4, ABM Government Services was awarded a three-year task order totaling approximately $35 million to provide linguists support to the Department of Defense Intelligence Command (INSCOM) and Defense Security Cooperation Agency’s Office of Security and Cooperation Iraq (OSC-I). ABM will operate from the Baghdad office from which it will manage approximately 200 linguists.

Additionally, on January 11, ABM Government Services was awarded a three-year task order totaling approximately $12 million to provide linguists support to the Department of Defense Air Force Office of Special Investigation (AFOSI). The ABM office will be located in Qatar and will support 27 linguists in 10 countries in the region.

“We are proud to be supporting these geo-strategic and historically significant Department of Defense operations,” said Les Cunningham, president of ABM Government Services. “ABM continues to leverage our extensive Government experience to provide critical language and communications needs for our U.S. troops around the globe.”

ABM Government Services provides an extensive set of mission critical and other services designed to address the unique needs and specific challenges of the military and other government agencies providing mission support services. ABM Government Services’ range of services includes, among others, integrated facility management services; military base operations; leadership development; education and training; energy efficiency management; medical support services; and construction management.
