ALEXANDRIA, Va.-- VSE Corporation (Nasdaq GS: VSEC) announced today that it has been awarded its second Task Order under the PEO CS&CSS Omnibus Contract to manage and operate the TACOM/TARDEC Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPAC) program. The total contract value over the base period and two option years is $19.2 million, with the base period valued at $5.37 million. VSE has been the prime contractor for the Army's CPAC program since 2005.
VSE and teammates Logis-Tech, DCM Clean-air Products, and Field Data Technologies operate at Ft. Bragg, NC; Ft. Polk, LA; Ft. Hood, Texas; Schofield Barracks, Hawaii; Torii Station, (Okinawa) Japan; and Camp Carroll/Camp Casey, South Korea.

VSE also continues to conduct corrosion comparison testing in facilities based in Alaska.
Along with ground support equipment, the VSE team will initiate CPAC treatments on Patriot missile systems for AMCOM in Okinawa, Japan this year, and AMCOM anticipates expanding the program into South Korea next year.
VSE has transitioned to environmentally friendly formulas for its primary corrosion prevention application. This innovative process has no adverse affect on the environment.
