Today, the USAF Civil Engineering community supports approximately 202 installations worldwide accounting for more than 2,000 unique sites, over 700 million square feet of facilities, more than 500 miles of runways and some 10 million acres of land managed using approximately 43,000 civil engineers. Serco has been supporting sustainment of the TRIRIGA-based solution since 2012.

Tom Watson, Serco’s Chief Executive Officer, said: "Serco is proud of this opportunity to continue to lead exciting technologies - from cloud, software, security and data management - for the US Air Force.

“Our team continues to demonstrate its deep experience deploying NexGen IT solutions to modernise capabilities, increase efficiency, productivity and security across government and civilian organisations. This award reinforces Serco’s position as an impact provider of large-scale IT solutions for the DoD.”

The primary place of performance for this work will be at Maxwell Air Force Base-Gunter Annex, Alabama and approximately 20 off-site locations within the continental United States.
