The latest iteration of the Department of State (DOS) Worldwide Protective Services (WPS) contract is known as WPS II. The predecessors to this contract were the Worldwide Personal Protective Services (WPPS) I & II contracts and the WPS contract. WPS II is the overarching DOS contract that facilitates to provision of security services to certain high threat US Embassies and Consulates. Currently DOS has WPS operations in Afghanistan, Africa, Iraq and Israel.

When a contract such as this is awarded, it is awarded as a base contract, which covers the entire program. With regard to the WPS program, the base contract is known as an Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) type of contract. The award of the IDIQ allows for the selection of a group of vendors who will later bid on individual task orders under the overarching WPS program.

In the case of WPS II, seven companies were awarded the IDIQ contract. Since the initial WPS II IDIQ proposals were submitted a number of changes within have occurred. First, Sterling Operations was rebranded as Janus Global Operations. Next, GardaWorld Government Services acquired Aegis Defense Services, effectively merging the two organizations. This resulted in six companies now competing for WPS II Task Orders, with one of those operating under a new name.

Following award of the WPS II IDIQ, Department of State released a number of individual task orders. Task orders are the individual contracts DOS offers and puts in place to protect its various assets around the globe. Some DOS locations overseas have significant enough security operations so as to warrant the division of the protection operations. For example, while some DOS locations offer both fixed site/static security and mobile protection operations as one task order, others divide the operations into two separate task orders.

Currently DOS is working its way through the proposal process as it transitions its current WPS task orders to WPS II task orders. During each of these proposals, all vendors who desire and are able, submit proposals (bids) to DOS. DOS then reviews the proposals and based upon its needs and proposal vetting criteria, awards those task order to a particular vendor.

The vendor who wins a task order then begins, in the event of a new task order, mobilizing to stand-up security operations for DOS, or in the event of an existing task order, transitioning security operations from one vendor to another. In the case of a transition, from one vendor to the other, the personnel currently working on the task order typically have first right of refusal. This affords these personnel with the ability to work for the new company prior to the backfilling of any potential vacancies with new hires, or internal transfers. It also benefits DOS and the company with helping to ensure experienced personnel remain in place to conduct operations.

With regard to employment, all of the vendors above have links to their web sites. Recruiters for all vendors will be allowed to post approved job notices within this thread. While jobs will be posted, as with any employment, it is incumbent upon the job seekers to understand the lay of the land and decide what is in their best interest. That understanding is accomplished through research and hard work, which is where SOCNET comes in.

This thread provides the opportunity for companies to inform potential job seekers of employment opportunities. Additionally, it allows job seekers with the opportunity to ask questions and discover information to make a better informed decision. As is repeatedly stated within these jobs boards, information provided by respondents to questions must be first hand, reliable information. The “I-Heard-It-From-A-Bud-Network” is not a source of reliable information. So please keep it on target and on topic.

Good luck!

I will also add that this is not the place for you to bitch about your current company or any other company. It is here to assist qualified people in finding positions. Period. If you start taking things down a negative road you will get the boot from the site. You may or may not get warned. That is the Admin's prerogative. This can be a great resource. Don't be "that guy".


Also, understand that you have all of the WPS Companies monitoring this thread. Everything from Team Members to Presidents and CEO's and everything in between. Many of them are members here, and BTDTs. Situational awareness.

greetings gents,
my question is the definition of "1.A minimum of one (1) year of this experience must include experience in protective security assignments"

Does DOD contracts count?
Does your deployment time ever expire?

Thanks,

If a recruiter has looked at your DoD contract time and determined it hasn't met the requirements then that is your answer. My response is based upon your statement that it's doing verifiable protective security assignments for the DoD in high threat areas. If it's static security in Kuwait or similar then no, it leant count as that's not protective security according to the contract nor a high threat area.

Its force protection in AF..
I have deployment time in Iraq as PSD during my time with the USMC, just not a year. The reason I am here on contract is to fill the gap needed for the 1 year down range requirements.. I have been told by lots of different people yes it counts and no It does not. Main reason I am asking

WPS 2 is more stringient on the requirements and just being downrange doesn't count anymore. Send proof to a recruiter and see. Again, everything must be verifiable as in the dates must be listed and the description must say that you were doing mobile protective details. Force pro doesn't count.

I'm referring to the fact that most security guys paid as contractors would be more accurately considered employees under the IRS definition.

Gotcha and agreed. I was sure of your sarcasm, just not which way you meant it.

It's amazing what you can get away with when the USG is the client. It's not like they're going to make companies toe the line when giving them a pass makes it cost less.

Bottom line is they can get away with paying as little as the workforce is willing to bear. As long as they can keep cutting pay and get qualified candidates, the rates will continue to decline. I'm not going on a "fuck that, I'm not working for that" rant. I'm just saying that the companies will pay as little as they can for as long as they can. When they start paying deducts for not having positons filled we'll know where the bottom dollar is.

Gotcha, I'm out of date.

To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."
