Agility Defense & Government Services today said its Taos Industries subsidiary won a contract to store, distribute and maintain equipment for the US Marine Corps at 15 bases within the United States and five others around the world.
The one-year contract includes six one-year options and is worth up to $140 million over seven years. The contract, known as the US Marine Corps Consolidated Storage Program (CSP), was awarded by the Marine Corps Logistics Command.
Agility DGS is a leading logistics provider to the US military and government. Under the contract, its Taos unit will store, distribute and maintain Marine Corps field and infantry combat gear, as well as chemical and biological defense equipment. The equipment covered includes personal gear such as tents, shelters, camouflage netting, packs and tools, along with specialized suits and masks that protect Marines from chemical, biological and other threats.
“We understand the importance of making sure that Marines’ equipment arrives when and where it is needed – in the best possible condition,” said Dan Mongeon, president and CEO of Agility DGS. “Our technical expertise in military procurement and maintenance, combined with our advanced logistics infrastructure and global network, ensure that the Marines will have ready access to equipment they need for their mission.”
The subcontractors on the Taos-led team are IBM, Smartronix, CW Services, Superior Services and National Industries for the Blind (NIB). Non-profit agencies affiliated with NIB will staff the issue-and-recovery facility at Quantico Marine Base.
“The CSP contract gives us a significant presence on every Marine base in the United States and around the world,” Mongeon said. “It also is the first award we’ve won where we have an opportunity to partner with NIB.”
This award follows other recent Taos contract wins, including a five-year Defense Logistics Agency contract with a potential value of more than $97 million for the recovery and disposal of excess Defense Department material in Iraq and Afghanistan. Taos also was part of the team selected by the US Army Sustainment Command to provide logistics support to under the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) IV contract.
