ACTION ALERT! LOGCAP IV Contract Awards May Include Halliburton-Linked Walter Reed Contractor, IAP
Just before the mid-term elections, bids were due for LOGCAP IV, with multiple awards anticipated (see the synopsis): http://www.fbo.gov/servlet/Solicitation/R/USA/USAMC/DAA...

On October 16, 2006, IAP Worldwide Services issued this press release: "IAP Worldwide Services, Inc. Team Submits Bid For LOGCAP IV Contract," which included this quote from former Halliburton/KBR executive Dave Swindle:

The LOGCAP IV contract is a major challenge, said Dave Swindle, IAP President. Supporting the warfighter and the Army is a responsibility that allows no compromise. IAP and its team members understand the magnitude of this program and the issues associated with its complexity. We place a high priority on using our proven Business Operating System (BOS) to provide effective oversight and tracking to responsibly meet the customers needs from Day One. Through BOS we will act as one team through a management and business system that is completely transparent to the customer.

I worked for Dave Swindle at Halliburton/KBR's offices in Arlington, Virginia. As I said in posts here this past fall, "if there's a Swindle involved, there's a swindle involved."

Today's hearing at Walter Reed focused on IAP's shoddy work as the privatized contractor there: http://oversight.house.gov/story.asp?ID=1195 (see, in particular, the letter to General Weightman about IAP)

On February 16, 2007, the US Army Sustainment Command published the first Award Notice for LOGCAP IV: http://www.fbo.gov/spg/USA/USAMC/DAAA09/Awards/W52P1J-0...

Please contact the House Oversight Committee staff, and the points of contact listed on that award notice, to ask whether Halliburton, KBR, or IAP is a finalist for a LOGCAP IV award - and whether the emerging information in the Walter Reed investigation will be taken into consideration with respect to the companies' suitability for award.

House Oversight: http://oversight.house.gov/contact.asp

If IAP can't manage the Walter Reed contract from its Arlington, Virginia "Washington, DC Corporate Office," how does it propose to realistically manage a contract that entails logistics halfway around the world?

http://www.iapws.com/who/contact.aspx

Besides those points of contact, please also call your local Member of Congress and your state's Senators. IAP should *NOT* be awarded one of those multiple contracts - and given Halliburton/KBR's dismal performance on LOGCAP III - neither should they.

Best to all,

2. Note the Neffgen Quote, Too (and See Waxman's Letter Last Week, Naming Him)
The IAP LOGCAP IV team represents a true partnership that offers deep experience combined with comprehensive capabilities across a global footprint, said Al Neffgen, IAP CEO. We have assembled a team of industry-leading companies that is uniquely qualified for LOGCAP IV. With this team, we have the ability to scale the response to meet any of the Armys logistics and operational needs making an extensive reservoir of resources available to meet the Armys challenges around the world or in the continental United States.
