U.S. Contracts With L.A. Firm for Help at Moscow Embassy

November 06, 1986|From Reuters

WASHINGTON — The U.S. government said today it has signed a five-year, $10-million contract with a private Los Angeles-based company to supply support staff for its diplomats in the Soviet Union to replace Soviet workers withdrawn by Moscow.

Pete Martinez, a State Department spokesman, told reporters that a first group of drivers, general laborers and tradespeople to be supplied by Pacific Architects & Engineers Inc. should arrive in the Soviet Union early next month.

He said Pacific Architects will supply 60 to 90 people to fill the jobs left vacant by the Soviet withdrawal, which obliged Ambassador Arthur A. Hartman to drive himself to work and diplomats to do everything from unloading supplies to cooking lunches in the embassy canteen.
