This is a huge contract and congrats to GIS. They have already done some work on the RSSS stuff with USACE and I posted that bit of news below this first piece. If anyone has anything else to add to this story, feel free to comment below. I am not that familiar with this contract and all that it entails, but this is great news for those looking for more security contracting work in Afghanistan. -Matt
