Answer: The United States contracted with PAE, Inc., and Dyncorp on May 27, 2003 to perform peacekeeping and conflict management support-related taskings throughout sub-Saharan Africa. This is an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract with PAE, Inc. and Dyncorp, awarded in a fair and open manner, to fulfill delivery orders for up to five years.
