Los Angeles — AECOM announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, JT4 LLC, was awarded in the month of April a 15-year contract from the U.S. Air Force for Joint Range Technical Services (J-Tech II). The $3.1 billion, cost-plus-award-fee contract is expected to be completed by April 15, 2033. The value of this contract, along with previous contracts in this services sector, will be added to AECOM’s backlog for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018.

“We are honored to continue our relationship with the U.S. Air Force and Navy, serving as their primary partner for range support services,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Leveraging our expanded capabilities and scale, this substantial award underscores the continued transformational backlog growth that we are driving in our Management Services business, our highest-margin segment.”

“For many years, we have established an excellent track record of providing services through the J-Tech program,” said John C. Vollmer, AECOM’s president of its Management Services group. “We have supported testing and training missions with a commitment to safety, innovation and operational excellence. Our continued partnership with the U.S. Air Force and Navy speaks to our success in safely and successfully supporting this very important program.”

Through this contract, AECOM will continue to provide for operation, maintenance and sustainment of the western test and training ranges. Work will be performed at the 412th Test Wing, California; Utah Test and Training Range, Utah; Nevada Test and Training Range, Nevada; the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division, California; and the Space Test and Training Range, Colorado.
