PAE Ebola Response Contract Wins Program of the Year at 2015 GovCon Awards
ARLINGTON, VA., November 12, 2015 – PAE won the first ever GovCon Program of the Year award for its work on the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Clinical and Non-Clinical Management of Ebola Treatment Units (CNMETU) contract. The award was presented at the 13th Annual Greater Washington GovCon Awards on Thursday, November 5.
“We are incredibly honored by this award and proud to have supported a nation in need,” said PAE CEO John Heller. “The Ebola outbreak in West Africa posed a major logistical challenge that PAE was uniquely suited to address, and we saw it as our duty to do so. With two decades of experience working in Liberia and a local presence at the time of the outbreak, PAE was prepared, willing and honored to provide the essential supplies and personnel needed to assist medical providers as they combated the deadly disease. ”
PAE was awarded the USAID CNMETU contract in October 2014. With local knowledge and resources, PAE rapidly mobilized more than 1,600 people to provide nine Ebola Treatment Units and a field hospital unit with facilities operation and maintenance, logistics and medical support.
“I accept this award on behalf of an extraordinary team of employees, many of whom volunteered to travel to Liberia in the midst of the outbreak. I am proud to work with individuals who did not hesitate to offer their assistance during this crisis and performed their work with the sensitivity and speed so essential to this mission.”
