AWCC is the permanent Afghan network. The network MCI is building in Iraq
is a temporary local network for use by the reconstruction teams.

I can't find anything that says whether this was awarded by USAID or by
the Pentagon directly. If the former, then this is likely to be a
subcontract under Bechtel.
