WPS 2 Task Orders?

Does anyone have any insight on the WPS2 task orders that came out?

TO-6 (Kabul Embassy Security Force [KESF])
TO-7 (Camp Alvarado and Sullivan [CAS])
TO-8 (Kabul Mobile)
TO-9 (Erbil)

TO-6 and TO-7 went to Garda did anyone hear anything else. TO-3 SOC got and TO-4 (BEC) SOC? Anyone have any other insights? THanks..

Insights is a very broad term.

Usually info is best acquired by research and then asking questions that are specific.

Constellis has had Kabul Mobile for a long time.

Check. Interesting part will be two subsidiaries of the same company going through this dance. I am admittedly new to contracting but already know I want as far away from Constellis as possible.

You're basing that statement off what experience?

Duly noted.

From what I've heard, from all 3 sources LOL is that IDS and TC are the companies you should want to be on.

You clearly dont have a clue..

Considering Constellis has considerable experience across WPPS, WPPS II, and WPS... has had a good year in 2017 in terms of both revenue and margin.. has won a couple of decent new contracts and task orders recently.. and picked up at least 1 major new customer this year that I am aware of..

How exactly is it a sinking ship?

You also appear to lack situational awareness..

You do realize that senior leaders and recruiters from most every player in the security contracting field are members here and specifically monitor this room right? Not just "guys with guns" employers.. but employers across the entire spectrum of OCONUS security contracting work..

and that making disparaging remarks that are unsubstantiated and unsupported about an employer in the field likely doesnt go over too well with many of them (if you are going to make a negative remark about one company that you cant validate, whats to stop you from shit talking about the next company without proof or validity)?

at least 3 people that have commented in this thread meet the description of those described above.. my guess is another dozen or so have read this thread at this point and havent commented..

Just sayin..

They did have a good year. We'll just pretend those COR letters and Letters of Cause don't exist, attrition rates are irrelevant and Jason DeYonker really started an asphalt company from scratch. If you believe all that then I've got a bridge to sell you...

You're banned.

Next time, if you want to pretend you aren't who you are, you may not want to use very specific verbiage that's been used before around the internet.

TC is under the Constellis umbrella and the same as acadami.

Silverbullet, thanks for your insight on Constellis. Going through the process now and being new to this, it concerned me to see that comment he made.

Glad to know it's not going to be a bad decision.

General rules for contracting still apply, regardless of company. Read the threads here and have a long term plan. Then go do some more PT.
