The U.S. Army released a Special Notice document through the Federal Business Opportunities website on Tuesday that provides details on a construction project aimed at expanding facilities for the Afghan Air Force Shindand Air Wing Squadron in Herat Province, Afghanistan.
In the Special Notice, the Army states they are looking for a contractor to provide management, design, material, labor, and equipment, to construct, or refurbish, all utilities, roads and buildings for the Afghan Air Force Shindand Air Wing Squadron.
