FALLS CHURCH, Va., Jan 28, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The U.S. Department of State has awarded DynCorp International (NYSE:DCP) a task order for operations and maintenance support in Liberia, under the AFRICAP contract. The task order, with a value of $5.2 million for the initial 6 month base period, has a potential total value of $20 million over two years if all options are exercised.
Under the task order, DynCorp International will provide operations and maintenance support for facilities of the Armed Forces of Liberia at Edward B. Kesselly Barracks and Camp Ware in Liberia.
