Not a WPS contract. It is DoD.

Yes, $163 a day. I spoke to an Aegis recruiter last Sunday. Also, this contract has an extremely short standup timeframe. Also, I found the actual contract award notice on the DOD website:

Aegis Defense Services, LLC, McLean, Virginia, was awarded a $12,756,407 firm-fixed-price contract for private security services at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 19, 2015.

Sixteen bids were solicited, with four received.

Fiscal 2015 operations and maintenance (Army) funds in the amount of $12,756,407 are being obligated at the time of the award.

CENTCOM Joint Theater Support Contracting Command - Kandahar is the contracting activity (W91B4L-15-C-0001).

It looks like this contract ends Sep 2015. I am not surprised by the daily rate because Academi is paying $175 a day in Helmond.

Apply for Aegis' KESF contract. Always short on people.

Correct, they wont have any trouble filling this. 163 a day to be in POG city, or 175 a day to be at Dwyer, with nothing...both contracts are a success.

I've got it from a solid source. They only need 30-40 bodies and have over 50 applicants.

5831lvn, your info is correct. Initially I heard Aegis needed 32. I believe other companies will provide FEVY, OCN and LN personnel.

5831lvn, I don't know specifically about the K-9 component but I have posted the link for the RFI on this contract which was posted in Oct 2014:

https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportun...881256717f1760

Also, this portion actually breaks down the personnel required for this contract:

“The proposed acquisition is expected to be a firm fixed price contract for a ten (10) month base period, which includes a sixty (45-60) day mobilization period (estimated), and no option periods. The requirement calls for an approximate of 500-600 guards, armorers, and management personnel; no less than 30% of which must be FVEY Expatriates, with the remaining 70% from an allowable ISAF Troop Contributing Nation: http://www.nato.int/ISAF/structure/nations/index.html”

Wacky-hut will pay you that for armed work. Stateside. Most major offices will have extra hours available if you want them and will come whenever they call at short notice. When you become known for that they will call you all the time. Most private security companies are like that. Armed work pays better than unarmed.

Any city with a Federal Building/Courthouse has contract armed guards that work for DHS. $20/hr. or so. Mil background a definite plus.

Keep in mind, with tax free, living expenses paid for, etc. that salary is much higher than most police officers, EMT/Paramedics, Firefighters, security guards are paid in the USA.

It is, at least if you are single, how much take home pay you bring home in a year. I can tell you, that when I was a professional firefighter, I was pocketing only several hundred dollars a month, after taxes and living expenses (rent, car payment, food, utilities, etc) on a $40,000 salary. Most Fire Depts and LE Department in Indiana start out in high $30s, and low $40s, and average pay is mid $40s once established. Indiana Conservation Officers start out at $37K per year for example. My old Fire Department, starts out at $41K currently.

So for many, going to work for this salary, for a year or two, and pocketing $50 - $100K is not a bad deal at all. It is no longer 2004-2008.

Not to be cynical, but when the troops are all gone, and the Taliban resume taking control of Afghanistan I wonder how many will be sticking around for that pay after the complex attacks start.
