DynCorp Rap Sheet

Recent Events

September 27, 2004 Government Executive
The Government Accountability Office has denied a protest from American security services firm DynCorp International LLC of the Army's controversial award of a $293 million contract in March to British firm Aegis Defense Services Ltd. to coordinate and manage the activities of security contractors operating in Iraq. DynCorp, a heavyweight in the global security services market, also had bid on the contract. The firm is owned by Computer Sciences Corp. of El Segundo, Calif. The award to Aegis surprised many because the company had no experience in the Middle East, and its main shareholder, Tim Spicer, a former lieutenant colonel in the Scots Guards, has been at the center of a number of controversial business deals, including a 1998 arms-smuggling operation in Sierra Leone in violation of a United Nations arms embargo.
