The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research has awarded Engility a potential five-year, $10 million task order to perform clinical trials of experimental vaccines against Chikungunya virus.

Engility said Thursday it received the task order under a potential four-year, $900 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract awarded by the U.S. Army in January.

Engility CEO Lynn Dugle said the company will collaborate with Walter Reed Institute“™s researchers through the contract to perform medical research in an effort to protect soldiers and civilians from the virus.

Chikungunya is a mosquito-borne viral disease that causes fever and joint pain and has no vaccine.
