Navy awards nearly a billion-dollar defense contract for Japan-funded Guam projects

The Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded today a $990 million multiple award construction contract (MACC) for work on projects located primarily in Guam and in various sites within the NAVFAC Pacific area of operations.

The projects includes work on administrative facilities, barracks/dormitories, dining facilities, ranges, educational facilities, training facilities, roads, streets, site utilities/infrastructure, and other base development facilities.

The contract supports the Defense Policy Review Initiative (DPRI) and is funded by Japan as part of the International Agreement between the United States and Japan.

“We are especially pleased to be awarding this MACC for the GoJ-funded construction projects on Guam,” said NAVFAC Pacific Guam Program Management Office Director Will Boudra. “With multiple contractors and a capacity of $990 million in new contract awards over the next five years, this MACC adds robust capacity to our acquisition toolbox in support of the DPRI construction program.”
