The contract, which is expected to be in place until 31 December 2023, has been extended after 10 years of support to the ADF’s Middle East operations across 22 different service lines.

Serco has confirmed that the company has been awarded a two-year contract extension for the ADF’s Middle East Logistics and Base Support Services (MELABS) contract, comprising some 22 different service lines to support ADF operations.

The MELABS was originally extended into 2020 in order to ensure an emergency response capability remained in place for the ADF’s primary Middle East operating base.

Clint Thomas, managing director of Serco Defence, detailed the strong relationship between Serco and the ADF after years of close collaboration.

“This contract extension acknowledges a successful, long-standing partnership with the ADF, and demonstrates the confidence the ADF has in Serco to deliver significant innovation and continuous improvements to support Australian Defence Force operations in the Middle East,” Thomas said.

“With the creation of Serco’s new integrated Facilities Management (FM) business unit in Australia, bringing specialist facilities and asset management skills combined with Serco’s global expertise, we are well positioned to continue the delivery of the best possible outcomes for the ADF at home and abroad.”

Andy Maclean, contract director for MELABS, applauded the dedication of Serco’s workforce in delivering quality products for the ADF.

“We recently celebrated the 10-year anniversary of supporting the ADF operations in the Middle East Region and now we look to the future for another two years of providing a wide-range of base and logistics services to sustain the ADF’s operations,” Maclean said.

“We hope to continue as a trusted partner of the ADF for many years to come, anywhere in the world where they require us to support Defence operations, training and capability support activities.”

Under Serco’s arrangements with the ADF, the company delivers facility management, logistics and operations support to the ADF.
