15 Oct Patricio Enterprises, Inc. awarded task order supporting the Defense Logistics Agency’s humanitarian efforts in Kuwait, Jordan
STAFFORD, Virginia –– Patricio Enterprises, Inc. (PE) is pleased to announce its award of two task orders supporting the Defense Logistics Agency’s mission to provide operational support in Kuwait and Jordan for humanitarian efforts.
The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and DLA Distribution have a requirement for the contractor to provide Contractor-Owned-Contractor-Operated (COCO) storage and distribution operations in Jordan with local delivery requirements to two areas within Jordan. The primary mission is to provide support to operations within the USCENTCOM Area of Responsibility (AOR) supporting humanitarian efforts. The majority of the deliveries will be to two Non-Government Organizations (NGOs); the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
PE will be providing the same COCO and distribution support in Kuwait with local delivery requirements within Kuwait and in Iraq. The World Food Program (WFP) has the responsibility for receiving all material delivered from DoD. It is anticipated the majority of the deliveries WFP will identify to receive DoD material are the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF); International Organization for Migration (IOM) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). However, there are a total of 33 organizations that may be identified by WFP as the receiving organization.
As America’s combat logistics support agency, the Defense Logistics Agency provides the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, other federal agencies and partner nation armed forces with a full spectrum of logistics, acquisition and technical services.
