Army Corps of Engineers USACE, contracting officers, contractors, Logistical Civil Augmentation Program LOGCAP contractors and LOGCAP Liaison Officers LSOs. Mayor s cells are also expected to prepare scope of work documents to solicit proposals from contractors. Installations Command IMCOM has accepted the mission to provide Base Management for Bagram Airfield and Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan with a team of IMCOM civilians having arrived in 2012.
