PAE Completes Mission in Ukraine
ARLINGTON, Va., 02/16/2010 -- PAE, a Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] company, has successfully concluded its role supporting the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) electoral observation mission in Ukraine.
Under a State Department contract, PAE provided over 120 highly-skilled professionals to serve as observers for the just-concluded presidential elections in that country.
PAE's efforts involved placing several long-term observers in Ukraine well in advance of the elections to help track developments during the campaign process, as well as sending short term observers to monitor the presidential election. Our observers were on hand to participate in activities for each of the two rounds of Ukrainian voting on January 17 and February 7, 2010.
"I'm proud of our team's work on behalf of our State Department customer in Ukraine," said Dell Dailey, President of PAE. "PAE has decades of experience supporting State Department programs, so we understand the valuable role they play in strengthening democracy around the world."
