Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) September 29, 2010
Mission Essential Personnel (MEP) today announced its Intelligence Services business unit won a CENTCOM Intelligence Support Services - Afghanistan (ISS-A) contract. In this capacity, MEP and its teammates will aid US and coalition forces with data-collection and analysis in the Combined Joint Operating Area - Afghanistan (CJOA-A), and CONUS locations as required. The contract's ceiling is $475 million through September 2013.
"With MEP's extensive experience in Afghanistan, we're ideally positioned to help the coalition forces in these operations," said MEP CEO Chris Taylor. "We know the mission, we understand the challenges, and we will continue to support those in harm's way."
This win comes on the heels of MEP's win of INSCOM's Omnibus III contract, a confirmation of the company's growing portfolio in the intelligence community. MEP operates on every base and on more than 250 FOBs, in every region of Afghanistan. Helping to identify and thwart hostile intelligence-collection efforts, MEP is engaged in a full range of intelligence-support capabilities.
