PAE Awarded State Department’s Criminal Justice Support Program
ARLINGTON, Va., June 10, 2011 – PAE has been selected to compete for future task orders under the U.S. Department of State Criminal Justice Program Support (CJPS) contract. Through CJPS, the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) will support the development of criminal justice sectors worldwide, continuing the progress that has been made under the INL Civilian Police program (CivPol). PAE is one of five large business awardees for this five year, multiple award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract. The combined ceiling for all awardees is valued at $10 billion over the life of the contract.
Under CJPS, PAE’s industry experts will train civilian police and criminal justice officials in Afghanistan, Haiti, Iraq, Kosovo, Lebanon, Liberia, Sudan and the West Bank. In addition to the training programs, PAE will also support multilateral and U.S. bilateral peacekeeping missions in these regions.
“PAE is committed to the relationship we have forged with INL in support of the CivPol program over the past seven years,” says Mike Dignam, PAE President. “CJPS gives PAE an opportunity to broaden its reach and provide criminal justice sector support and police training to new regions of the world while continuing operations already underway in many others.” PAE has substantial experience supporting criminal justice programs around the world.
Beginning in 2004 with a CivPol task order to provide expert police assistance to the United Nations Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), PAE has expanded its support of criminal justice system development under State Department contracts in Lebanon, Sudan, Liberia and Afghanistan. Under CJPS, PAE will leverage its existing operational footprint in many of these countries and further expand to new regions in Southwest Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Headquartered in Arlington, Va., PAE is a global company providing smart power solutions for missions in governance and institutional development, stability operations, infrastructure operations and maintenance, and expeditionary construction.
