Joint venture of JLL and J&J Worldwide Services wins Philippines Operations Support contract


WASHINGTON, August 9, 2017 – The United States Department of Defense has awarded a contract to a joint venture of JLL (NYSE:JLL) and J&J Worldwide Services to provide facility and logistics support services for U.S. Military Forces and Federal Government agencies in the Republic of the Philippines.

Under the contract, JLL and J&J Worldwide Services will provide Philippines Operations Support Services for the U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM) Augmentation Team-Philippines (PAT-PHL), Special Operations Command, Pacific (SOCPAC), and Marine Corps Forces, Pacific (MARFORPAC). They will also serve other U.S. military forces and federal government agencies supporting PACOM that are performing a variety of advisory and assistance missions in support of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. Services include facility and logistics support.

"JLL's broad international experience puts us in a unique position to use best practices to support our troops," said Barry Scribner, International Director and Co-president of JLL's Public Institutions Group. "We have an ongoing presence in the Philippines, market knowledge and technical capabilities that allow us to deliver immediate value through this contract. Together with J&J, we have the capability to furnish labor, materials and equipment through an experienced workforce to create a comfortable, healthy, safe and productive environment."

As part of the contract, the joint venture will employ more than 400 people to provide facility management, security, transportation, materials handling, maintenance, food and transient lodging services in the Philippines. The contract was awarded for one year with the option to renew for four additional years and is valued at more than $58 million.

It will also maximizie the efficiency of staff and optimize budgets through strategic sourcing while reducing energy costs by lowering consumption.
