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.
