Thursday, February 02, 2012

Serco Group plc, the international service company, announces that it has signed a contract with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to provide training and support to the British Army prior to deployment on operations around the world.

Known as the Contemporary Operating Environment Force (COEFOR), and awarded by the British Army’s Headquarters, the contract will start in April 2012. Including an option year, the contract has a total value to Serco of approximately £55m through to December 2014.

Under the contract Serco will provide critical pre-deployment training including essential language, culture and operational environment skills, and will create realistic training conditions to prepare UK military forces for deployed operations primarily in Afghanistan, but also worldwide. To deliver the programme, Serco has created new partnerships with a number of small and medium sized enterprises to supply some of the specialised training services.
