As part of a long-standing partnership with the United States Army and Coalition forces, the Maintenance and Operational Support Contract – Afghanistan (MOSC-A) program management team in Afghanistan is currently providing a full range of maintenance, supply, security, transportation and facilities support to the 401st Army Field Sustainment Brigade including:
- Vehicle, Small Arms, and COMMEL maintenance
- Health, Safety & Environmental service
- Add-on armor support
- Retrograde, supply and logistics services
- Information Technology
- Access control and security
- Quality Management & Quality ControlPhysical security
- Facilities and & billeting management and maintenance
- Training, fitness and recreational services
- Operations and Planning
Beginning with a joint venture contract in 2005, AECOM has successfully managed MOSC-A through building a close client relationship by focusing on team work, responsiveness, supporting the Army’s troop buildup and retrograde operations and accomplishing a wide range of tactical wheeled vehicle, weapons, and communications maintenance requirements.
Other major factors contributing to MOSC-A’s success are program efficiencies and project transparency. Examples include:
- An increase in battle-damaged, heavily armored Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles led to AECOM completely rebuilding them in Afghanistan (instead of airlifting to Kuwait) – resulting in a savings to the United States Army of US $12M;
- The AECOM team met the Under Secretary of Defense’s challenge to rebuild a battle-damaged RG-31 from the bare hull in less than 16 days — in fact, they completed it in 12 days; and,
- The AECOM OneSource enterprise management system, which monitors and reports near-real time program status updates.
- Supporting 36,000 military personnel;
- 2,000 Department of the Army civilians;
- Approximately 800 transient personnel;
- 19 locations.
