PAE Joint Venture Landmarc Wins £322M Contract with UK Ministry of Defence
ARLINGTON, Va., May 12, 2014 – PAE, a leading provider of integrated global mission services, announces that its joint venture Landmarc Support Services (Landmarc) in the United Kingdom has been awarded a contract with the Ministry of Defence to maintain its National Training Estate. Under the £322M (US$544M) contract, Landmarc will manage 190,000 hectares of military training facilities for five years, with an option to extend the contract for up to an additional five years.
“For over a decade, the Landmarc joint venture has supported the Defence Infrastructure Organization (DIO) with management and support services that are critical to maintaining the operational tempo of the UK training estate,” said PAE CEO John Heller. “We are proud to continue this work in close partnership with the DIO and with the rural communities that surround the training estate.”
Since 2003, Landmarc, a joint venture between PAE and UK-based Interserve, has provided the full spectrum of range support – including lodging, catering, fueling,
logistics, and operations and maintenance services - to serve the units that conduct military readiness training exercises at the estate. Under the new contract, Landmarc will manage over 30 additional sites, including the specialist electronic warfare range at RAF Spadeadam, the air weapons ranges and training facilities at Bovington and Lulworth, as well as Ballykinler and Magilligan in Northern Ireland. In addition, Landmarc provides a specialized set of rural estate and land management services throughout the areas that surround the estate, in support of the Ministry of Defence’s initiatives for environmental stewardship and conservation.
For PAE, this award complements its extensive portfolio of U.S. Department of Defense range support services contracts, including the Southern California Offshore Range, the Atlantic Undersea Test & Evaluation Center, and the Patuxent River Naval Air Station. Interserve, listed in the FTSE 250 index, is a support services and construction provider operating in the public and private sectors in the UK and internationally.
Matt Foley, Head of Future Procurement at DIO said, “Over the last 10 years, DIO has rationalised our contracting arrangements from over 250 to six manageable Next Generation Estate Contracts Prime contracts in 2014. I look forward to working closely with our new Prime contractors and am confident that the companies selected will meet the high standards required on the Defence estate.”
