PAE has received a $50M contract to perform logistics and medical integration support to help the Navajo Department of Health respond to COVID-19 on one of the country’s largest American Indian reservations.

The company said Thursday it will support alternate care site operations, including at the Chinle Community Center in Arizona, and deploy teams to expand coronavirus testing coverage across the territory.

“Our Expeditionary Support and Stabilization Team is saving lives with their quick deployments and epidemic expertise as they respond to the needs of governments and organizations around the world,” said John Heller, president and CEO of PAE and a 2020 Wash100 Award recipient.

The Falls Church, Virginia-based contractor supports North American public health programs amid the ongoing pandemic such as mobilization of test personnel for the Southeastern Conference of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and establishment of an ACS facility in Georgia.
