PAE has been awarded a one-year contract valued at more than $12.4 million to continue the company’s support of the U.S. Postal Service at its Milwaukee Mail Transport Equipment Service Center (MTESC), PAE announced on Wednesday.
“We provide the distinct capabilities the Postal Service needs and an outstanding management approach that delivers innovative solutions,” PAE president and CEO, and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, John Heller said. “PAE helped open the MTESC in Milwaukee in 2006 and we have an opportunity to strengthen that relationship and further our productivity initiatives here as we transition operations to a new facility this spring.”
The contract has an option for a 24-month extension and will include the production and management of mail transport equipment, such as sacks, trays, lids, pallets and wheeled containers used to enclose and transport mail.
Heller said the award has recognized PAE’s track record of delivering best-in-class solutions in managing high volume and process-driven programs that require specialized business process outsourcing expertise.
PAE has developed a longstanding relationship with MTESC. In 2006, the company opened a facility with MTESC. With the contract, PAE will now be transitioning them to a new facility. In addition to the $12.4 million contract, PAE also secured a $60 million contract in May 2019.
The U.S. Postal Service awarded PAE the $60 million contract to support the national network of mail transport equipment service centers. Through MTESC, PAE will provide program management, information support and logistics services for the 500,000 square-foot facility in Edgerton, Kansas.
With the addition of the Edgerton contract, PAE will now process approximately 9 million pieces of equipment a week to support the flow of mail throughout the United States. “The operational support and management of the MTESC contract is a great example of how we work behind the scenes to keep major functions of U. S. government agencies in motion,” said Heller.
For 20 years, PAE has provided program management excellence to the U.S. Postal Service in processing centers across the nation. Continuous improvement and process efficiencies are foundational tools for the PAE workforce.
“Through our commitment to CI, we deliver better quality and better performance to our customers,” Heller added. “It creates collaborative and efficient teams, helping us to achieve the U.S. Postal Service’s objectives.”
