USTRANSCOM improves GHC transition terms

USTRANSCOM (USTC) has announced a modification in the Global Household Goods Contract (GHC) for US military moves awarded to HomeSafe Alliance.

In a statement on LinkedIn on February 14, the organisation, which oversees the GHC, said it was adding an additional US$60 million to the value of the contract and an additional 12 months of transition from its current Defense Personal Property Program (DP3) to the GHC. The extended timetable runs until February 11, 2025. The total value of the contract across its maximum term was previously quoted as $6.2 billion.

The change follows speculation about the deliverability of the GHC, which was initially tendered before COVID and ensuing rises in energy, shipping, and other supply chain costs that have significantly impacted on suppliers, and other issues. According to FEDEMAC, HomeSafe has experienced ‘challenges in integrating systems with the government’ and faced a backlash from moving companies that provide military moving services.
