Engility clinches $369m US contract 

The US Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Volpe National Transportation Systems Center has awarded Engility a $369 million contract to provide engineering and technical services as well as financial and programme management supporting the modernisation of the United States’ air traffic management system, known as NextGen.
This is the the largest contract Engility has secured since spinning off from L3 and despite having worked with the US Federal Aviation Administration for more than 25 years, this represents a significant win for the Virginia,US-based business to support the agency as it navigates the new requirements of NextGen.
“Engility supports the Federal Government’s high priority mission to develop and implement leading-edge technology that advances the efficiency and safety of our nation’s aviation transportation system,” said Engility CEO Lynn Dugle. “This award reflects our DOT team’s strong capabilities and past performance, and we look forward to continuing this partnership.”
Under this contract, the Engility team will support the Federal Aviation Administration Air Traffic Organization’s Program Management Office (PMO). This win broadens Engility’s support to the PMO, which is the lynchpin for the FAA’s acquisition and implementation of NextGen, as well as all communications, navigation, weather, surveillance and automation modernization programs.
This five-year single award contract has a ceiling value of $369 million. It is a fourth-quarter win representing a combination of new and existing work, which primarily will be performed as cost-plus-fixed-fee.
