The Air Force has awarded Alion Science and Technology Corp. a five-year, $40 million contract to provide operational support services, the company has announced.
Under the contract, Alion, of McLean, Va., will provide a broad range of technical and management services to the U.S. Central Command Air Forces Headquarters at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., and its overseas locations.
The company will provide specialized technical and managerial expertise across functional areas, such as personnel and manpower, intelligence, air defense, training, planning, logistics, security, communications, force protection and operation of the command's operations center.
The contract supports the command's contingency mission requirements, including Operating Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, Operation Iraqi Freedom and the war on terrorism.
Alion has provided similar services to the command for the past five years. The new contract, which was awarded Dec. 30, 2004, expands on existing requirements, the company said.
