Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Job Opportunities Abound at KBR

This link takes you to a pdf of KBR seeking contractors found via Modern Survival Blog.

KBR is establishing a National Quick Response Team for our current Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) work, and for
anticipated future contracts. Upon completion of evaluation, certain subcontractors may be
invited to establish a Master Services Agreement (MSA) with pre-established lease rates and
terms and conditions. 

Great, how does this work?
The Continental US will be broken up into five regions as indicated in the map below Services
will be required in each State within each region:
Anticipated Project Requirements:
Establish services listed below within 72 hours for initial set-up and respond within 24 hours for
incremental services.  This is a CONTINGENCY PROJECT and it should be stressed that lead
times will be short with critical requirements due to the nature of emergency responses.
Subcontractors must be flexible and able to handle multiple, shifting priorities in an emergency
environment.  Supply lines needed must be short but not necessarily pre-positioned.   
So in the event of a hurricane or disaster, what if these contractors short supply lines are interrupted? What kind of emergency are we talking about here?

The personnel on site to be covered by these services will depend on the size and scope of the
recovery effort, but for estimating purposes the camp will range in size from 301 to 2,000
persons for up to 30 days in length.
x The offeror will not have to submit a proposal for each service in each state.
x Please identify which state and/or region your company can perform the
requested services.
So what are the estimating purposes of these camps? Are we still talking natural disasters and "terror acts"? Will we just regroup into camps made for between 300-2000 people? Why don't we just let the Red Cross do this kind of thing?  What kind of contracts are involved?

The descriptions of the services are for reference only. Any and all specific requirements
will be forthcoming with a detailed Statement(s) of Work in an RFP solicitation. 

  • Catering Services
  • Temporary Fencing and Barricades -why do free people caught in a disaster need this? Or are these camps for KBR personel with the fences to keep them safe from what? Here are the dimensions:Number of linear footage: "Approximately 2,300LF for a 301 person camp after 36 hours of NTP  Approximately 3,600LF for 1,000 person camp after 72 hours of NTP" That's about 50 x 50 feet for 300 people and 60 x 60 feet for 1000 people. That's really tight quarters or they're just doing frontage or something, hopefully the latter.
  • Handwashing Stations - did Auschwitz have these? This is the 21st century after all!
  • Laundry Services - should I be writing my name on my clothes, or just be glad I look good in stripes too? The description here also says that  "The facility shall have equipment capable of cleaning medical and Petroleum-Contaminated clothing." 
  • Medical Services - finally free medical care! But wait a minute, "Medical personnel shall provide medical services to FEMA first responders and contractor employees 24 hours a day, seven days a week." Proles don't seem to be emphasized here.
  • Office Administration - providing offices for administration of the camp.
  • Potable Water
  • Power Generation, Fuel Delivery
  • Refuse Collection
  • Tentage, Flooring, Electrical, HVAC
  • Waste Water Removal

Then I see this video at The Classic Liberal on the CL Report:

I tend to think this all might be bogus, but when you line this stuff up with the recent NDAA thing, it really makes the mind spin. It ain't paranoia if people are really out to get you. If someone out there has more insight on this stuff, please leave a comment. I would really like to know that everything is actually ok and a military subcontractor really isn't planning to set up camps for themselves or for the populace in every state of the nation. For the record, I'm more "terrified" of my government right now than any middle eastern one in bongo bongo land.
