SPRINGFIELD, Va., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Versar, Inc. (NYSE MKT: VSR) announced today that it has been awarded two new task orders under its existing Personal Services Contract in Afghanistan.  The year-long task orders were awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Middle East District (MED) and Versar will support the Transatlantic Afghanistan (TAA) District office and the MED Area Office with over 500 Afghan engineers and professionals. 

Task orders three and four are valued at $30.5 million cumulatively and represent significant contract growth in Versar's four-year long contract with USACE.  This Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract has a maximum contract capacity of $170 million and Versar has received $63.6 million through task order four.
