ANHAM Prepared for Full Implementation and Transition to Prime Vendor to U.S. Government for Food Services in Kuwait, Iraq
VIENNA, Virginia, May 9, 2010 - On May 7, 2010, the U.S. Government directed ANHAM FZCO, LLC, to resume
work on the implementation and ramp up to providing full-line food and
non-food distribution and support services in Kuwait and Iraq.
"We are, and have been, fully prepared to work as Prime Vendor
immediately," said David Braus, managing director for ANHAM. "Complemented by
strong and reliable local country affiliates and vendors, our capable and
experienced team is ready for this important work. The DLA reviewed our
proposal side by side and we are confident we offer the best work, at the
best value with the highest certainty of quick and efficient delivery."
The Prime Vendor contract requires ANHAM to provide a range of food
products - from fresh fruits and vegetables to Meals Ready to Eat (MRE's) and
other operational rations. The contract is estimated at a total aggregate
dollar value of US$2.16 billion, including options if exercised, with a
maximum contract dollar value of US$6.47 billion. The initial contract period
is 18 months, with options to renew the contract up to six years.
Since the award announcement on April 14, 2010, ANHAM has made
significant progress on the ground in its mobilization and transition
efforts. "We fully expect to meet and exceed all deadlines and milestones set
by the company and the U.S. Government," said Braus. ANHAM is already working
with and intends to work through more than 100 vendors and service providers
locally in Kuwait to support its operations under the contract.
"We are very proud to serve as Prime Vendor, and to continue to build
upon ANHAM's legacy of delivering the best services at the best value, under
some of the most challenging conditions in the world. Our experience with
this kind of work will insure a smooth transition," added Braus.
