Operation Allies Welcome - Holloman Air Force Base Support

Fluor supported Operation Allies Welcome at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. Fluor constructed, operated and maintained Aman Omid Village, where more than 7,200 Afghan evacuees were provided food, clothing, shelter and medical care as they completed their resettlement process.


Client's Challenge

On Aug. 29, 2021, President Joe Biden directed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to lead implementation of ongoing efforts across the federal government to support Afghan evacuees, including those who worked alongside the U.S. military in Afghanistan, as they safely resettled in the United States. Assisting DHS, the Department of Defense provided transportation, temporary housing, medical screening and general support for at least 50,000 Afghan evacuees.


Fluor's Solution

The Air Force Installation Contracting Center awarded Fluor a task order to provide contingency and humanitarian support to Operation Allies Welcome at New Mexico's Holloman Air Force Base. The one-year task order was awarded under the Air Force Contract Augmentation Program V (AFCAP V), which is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract vehicle. Fluor had personnel on the ground the day it received notice to proceed and was able to support the first Afghan evacuees within a week. Working with its network of subcontractors and vendors helped Fluor respond quickly.


Conclusion

Between August 2021 and February 2022, Fluor constructed and maintained 87 facilities totaling 583,748 square feet and had supported the resettlement of more than 7,200 vulnerable Afghans.
