Diego Garcia Fire Contract

Diego Garcia Fire Contract

In May 2017, KBR Inc was awarded a $514.9 million fixed-price contract which includes fire & Emergency Services at the Diego Garcia Atoll, located in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The award came after a protest (here) from the (then) contract holder Centerra-Parsons. However, KBR appears to hold the contract today.

Diego Garcia is a well known B2 Bomber Base which was a critical resource while fighting the War on Terror. The Fire department is primarily staffed with other country nationals such as Filipinos. The Leadership is all American.
