US Army looking to build command and control centre in Chad


The United States Army is looking to build a command and control centre in Chad’s capital N’djamena.

On 4 May the US Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website posted a notice saying the army was looking for sources to build a 532 square metre single story ‘fusion centre’. Estimated cost is between $500 and $100 000 and estimated time to complete is a year.

The notice says “The Capabilities Statement for this sources sought is not intended to be a Request for Proposal nor Invitation for Bid, nor does it restrict the Government to an ultimate acquisition approach.”

Responses are due by 21 May.

Also on 4 May, the FBO issued a notice looking for sources to build a vehicle maintenance facility in Faya, Chad. The building needs to be two stories tall and accommodate two vehicle maintenance/garage bays and one admin/personnel bay.

Estimated cost of the project is between $500 and $100 000.

Faya-Largeau is the largest city in northern Chad, and is some 800 km northeast of N’Djamena.
