DynCorp International to continue supporting Marine operations in Philippines

DynCorp International Inc. on Tuesday won a $20.9 million contract for operations support work in the Philippines, representing the continuation of a job the McLean global logistics contractor has been on since 2008.

The Philippines Operations Support contract “provides for all labor, supervision, management, tools, materials, equipment, facilities, transportation, incidental engineering and other items necessary to provide support services” for Marine Corps forces within the Pacific Command Augmentation Team stationed in the Southeast Asian nation, according to a Pentagon announcement.

DynCorp began supporting this Marine mission in February 2008 when it won its first Philippines Operations Support contract — what was then a potential five-year, $164.2 million award. DynCorp then won a follow-on award in June 2012 that included a base year and four options.

This most recent contract represents the fourth option to be exercised under that 2012 award.

DynCorp has won $376 million worth of contracts from this program since 2008.

The Philippines was once a much more lucrative market for DynCorp. Between 2009 and 2011, the company noted in filings that it helped drive big revenue increases.

Though in 2015, along with a general malaise in all of DynCorp’s contingency operations-based business lines, the Philippines Operations Support contract’s “de-scoping” was cited as one of the factors contributing to an overall 38.1 percent decline in its $647 million DynLogistics segment.
