IAP Worldwide Services, Inc. is a privately-owned company with "about 5,000 employees working in more than 25 countries" that serves the U.S. Department of Defense, "as well as other federal US and non-US government agencies." For IAP, "the customer is the government, and the company's services range from building Army camps in Iraq to providing ice to US hurricane victims." [1]

"In Iraq, it builds and operates Army camps the size of small cities. In the southeastern United States, it provides emergency ice and power generation to hurricane victims. IAP supports domestic and foreign military installations, provides technical employees for the US Geological Survey, crafts mock foreign military hardware for US war games, and operates trucks and heavy lift equipment that support US combat forces in Kuwait and Iraq." [2]

Connected to Halliburton and Walter Reed Army Medical Center

"IAP is owned by Cerberus Capital Management LP, an asset-management firm chaired by former Treasury secretary John W. Snow. The company is headed by two former high-ranking executives of KBR, formerly known as Kellogg Brown & Root. Al Neffgen, IAP's chief executive, was chief operating officer for a KBR division before joining IAP in 2004. IAP's president, Dave Swindle, is a former KBR vice president. The company has worked at Walter Reed since 2003, providing housekeepers, computer analysts and clerks under a Treasury contract," Steve Vogel and Renae Merle reported March 10, 2007, in the Washington Post.

Background

"IAP's heritage dates back to the days of Pan American Technical Services, Inc., a company that built America’s first space launch complex at Cape Canaveral, Fla., more than 50 years ago. The namesake International American Products (IAP) was formed in Irmo, SC, in 1990 by Doyle McBride, a retired US Army professional logistician. In response to a burgeoning US government contracting market, McBride’s IAP was growing as well. Providing a variety of logistics and contingency services, the company had grown by 2003 to $156 million from $18 million. McBride soon decided to take on a partner, selling 74% of the company in 2005 to a private investment group." [3]

In 2005, IAP acquired Johnson Controls World Services, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Readiness Management Support." [4]
