TigerSwan Awarded US Dept of Defense Iraq Security Contract
TigerSwan announced today it has been awarded the contract for Personal Security Detail Services in support of the Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO) in Iraq.
The Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO) is focused on economic stabilization of Iraq, with foreign direct investment, banking and financial systems, industrial capacity revitalization to corporate development, procurement assistance and budget execution, agriculture revitalization, and communications infrastructure. TFBSO also emphasizes the ability of bi-lateral operations between US and Iraq companies. The TFBSO was established in June 2006 to aid in the revitalization and stabilization of Iraq's economy and to create jobs for the Iraqi people. Since that time, the organization has deployed more than 400 business leaders, engineers, subject-matter experts and accountants to work in partnership with Iraqi business and engineering professionals in every province of the country.
Under terms of the $12 million contract, TigerSwan will provide all resources to support the contract, including an experienced multi-disciplined, project management team to ensure the security and safety of TFBSO personnel and sponsored visitors operating throughout all regions of Iraq; experienced, multi-cultured security personnel; analytical intelligence support; and logistics support to include multiple self-sustaining life support camps.
TigerSwan CEO James Reese praised TFBSO for its success in facilitating business engagements with more than 30 multinational companies including Daimler Benz, Boeing, GE, Case New Holland and Caterpillar/Mantrac, and the ongoing reconstruction and revitalization efforts throughout Iraq.
"We are honored and humbled that our service-disabled, veteran-owned company TigerSwan, has been chosen to play such an important role in the future economic development of Iraq, by providing project management, logistics and security support to the members of the TFBSO. We are fortunate to be teamed strategically with Iraqi companies such as Babylon Eagles Security Company (BESC) who will provide a large number of personnel to our multi-cultural security teams. We believe it is imperative to have our Iraqi partners on point in both the security and development phase to support TFBSO and its members. We are committed to supporting Iraq and the future development of this great country. We also have a strong presence regionally, and are continually learning. With our newly formed TigerSwan JO company in Amman, Jordan, and TigerSwan International in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, we look forward to strengthening those ties through this business opportunity."
