Army Iraq Contract Goes to Parsons

August 23, 2003|Nancy Cleeland

Pasadena-based Parsons Corp. won an $89-million contract from the Army Engineering and Support Center to manage the disposition of captured weapons and ammunition in Iraq.

The construction and engineering firm said Friday that it would manage other contractors at three sites in Iraq but would have no direct role in the movement or destruction of the ordnance.

According to a company statement, the subcontractors will collect munitions captured by U.S. military personnel, destroy unserviceable weapons and ammunition, and stockpile the remainder under U.S. control. The initial contract runs for one year.

Parsons had bid on one of the major contracts to rebuild Iraq's infrastructure but lost to San Francisco-based Bechtel Corp.
