Kuwaiti logistics company Gulf Catering Company For General Trade and Contracting, WLL (a subsidiary of PWC Logistics, n/k/a Agility) filed a claim against KBR in a British arbitration court seeking $11.2 million Gulf Catering claimed it was owed by KBR for services performed in 2004 and 2005 under an Iraq War dining facilities (DFAC) subcontract. Gulf Catering claimed that KBR wrongly withdrew that amount after a disallowance by the U.S. government of payments it made to KBR for these services under the LOGCAP III prime contract. The arbitration court ordered KBR to pay Gulf Catering $11.2 million plus $1.4 million in interest. In June 2013, Gulf Catering filed suit in U.S. federal court to enforce the arbitration award.
