McLane Advanced Technologies Wins SAMS-E Re-Compete Contract

TEMPLE, Texas, Sept. 29 2010

McLane Advanced Technologies (MAT) has been awarded a $52.3 million contract from the United States Army as the prime contractor to provide Program Management Support for SEC-Lee and the Standard Army Maintenance System – Enhanced (SAMS-E). Work on this contract will begin October 2010 for a period of three years.

"We are honored that the U.S. Army has entrusted MAT to continue providing support and fielding for this vital maintenance program," said Chief Executive Officer David Mitchell. "SAMS-E has been our flagship program for the last five years, and I know all of our employees and teammates are excited and committed to delivering the best for our country's warfighter."

As prime contractor, MAT led the winning team in this proposal effort comprised of Northrop Grumman IS, GlobalSCAPE, Logistics and Technology Services (LTS), CALIBRE Systems, HCI Integrated Solutions, SAIC, and Joint Logistics Managers. Executive Vice President Bob Reeves commented, "There's no doubt that the breadth and depth of our team's capabilities played a role in this award, and we're proud to lead such a distinguished team."

As a maintenance systems modernization initiative, SAMS-E is a bridge between current system functionality and the future Global Combat Support System – GCSS Army. The United States Army originally entrusted MAT with modernizing three logistics systems to equip military personnel with up- to-date capabilities that support enterprise resource planning. MAT has fielded SAMS-E to over 6,100 units at more than 200 sites worldwide. MAT also provides training for SAMS-E that has included over 17,000 U.S. Army personnel.
