Defense giant KBR Inc. has been awarded a massive contract for support work in Iraq, even as it remains under a cloud of suspicion for its faulty record in Iraq.
Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) is to handle logistics support, transportation mission and postal operations in Iraq, Army Spokesman Dan Carlson said.
The optional one-year deal is potentially worth $2.8 billion.
The Houston-based group was notified of the award on Friday, a day after the company announced it lost about $25 million in award fees because of flawed electrical work in Iraq.
