CHANTILLY, Va. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL), today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, IRG, has been awarded a position on a $2.5 billion indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide specialized technical consulting to local partners working to advance peace and democracy in priority countries that are in transition. The contract was awarded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and its Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI).

The Support Which Implements Fast Transition IV (SWIFT IV) IDIQ is the primary contract vehicle providing the OTI with the means to support U.S. foreign policy objectives in priority countries in transition. SWIFT IV is divided into two sub-IDIQs, grouped geographically by Latin America/Africa, and Middle East/Eastern Europe/Asia. Engility won positions on both sub-IDIQs and will be competing for work in all regions.

“This is an important win that builds upon our work under the SWIFT III contract and we are honored to again be selected as an implementing partner to OTI,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “Under SWIFT III, Engility proved its ability to implement timely, effective programs in challenging conflict-affected countries. We are committed to the success of OTI and its foreign policy initiatives, and are proud of the support we have provided to this important effort since 2008.”

SWIFT IV is a follow-on to the SWIFT III contract, on which IRG also held a position. The new award is a five-year contract and task orders issued under will be cost-plus-fixed-fee. Engility’s professional staff could be called upon to work with local organizations and government entities in various countries to support programs that advance peace and democracy. These programs could include economic development, improving local infrastructure, helping local governments provide essential services and increasing public awareness of democratic principles.
