The Air Force Installation Contracting Agency awarded Fluor, through its Fluor AMEC II, LLC entity, the task order contract to repair the Ascension Island Auxiliary Airfield runway. The task order is awarded under the Air Force Contract Augmentation Program IV (AFCAP IV).
Established by the U.S. Air Force to fulfill the Department of Defense's global mission during contingency events, AFCAP provides the Air Force and other government agencies with additional capabilities to rapidly support the logistic requirements of its deployed forces through the use of civilian contractors. Fluor has supported the Air Force through its AFCAP IV task order since 2015.
Ascension Island is an isolated volcanic island south of the equator in the South Atlantic Ocean. It is part of the British Overseas Territory of St. Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha under the sovereignty of the British Crown. The airfield serves as a lifeline to the island and is in a strategic location for the Air Force. The airfield repair will support the Air Force and its global mission.
