The Air Force Materiel Command has awarded a contract to BearingPoint Inc. for the ongoing modernization of the service's purchasing and supply chain management program.
The McLean, Va.-based company won a contract to lead efforts around the command's Purchasing and Supply Chain Management Immersion Training. The $6 million base contract could be worth up to $21 million over four years if all options are exercised.
To assist the command with its long-term purchasing and supply chain management modernization program, BearingPoint will provide logistics education, instruction and strategic consulting services to more than 3,500 supply management personnel across the command.
Among the subcontractors that will support BearingPoint are Mercer Engineering Research Center, Raytheon Professional Services, the Shenton Group Inc., the University of Oklahoma, V8 Logistics Services Group LLC and Weber State University.
The Air Force Materiel Command is responsible for support of overarching Air Force combat capabilities through management of supply, transportation, logistics plans, aircraft, support equipment, maintenance and munitions. Doug Beizer is a staff writer for
