Parsons Selected by Army Corps of Engineers for U.S. Army Europe Integrated Training Area Management Contract

PASADENA, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2010) - Parsons announced today that it was selected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe District for the U.S. Army Europe (USAREUR) Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) Contract. This 5-year, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract includes 1 base year with 4 option years and provides ITAM support services throughout the USAREUR area of responsibility.

The ITAM program provides training land management capability across the total Army and is an essential part of the Army's commitment to environmental stewardship. It integrates elements of operational, environmental, master planning, and other programs to identify and assess land use alternatives. By integrating stewardship principles into training land and conservation management practices, the ITAM program will ensure that Army lands remain viable to support future training and mission requirements. ITAM consists of four major elements: Range and Training Land Assessment, Training Requirements Integration, Land Rehabilitation and Maintenance, and Sustainable Range Awareness.

"We have been supporting the Europe ITAM program since 1998 as a part of our overall business line for Army Training Support Services, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Army Corps of Engineers."
